Following victories for pro-Israel Democrats in congressional primaries last night in New Jersey, New Mexico, and Montana, DMFI PAC Chairman Mark Mellman released the following statement:

“We’re thrilled to congratulate DMFI PAC endorsees for advancing to the General Election, including Senator Jon Tester (MT) and Reps. Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), Teresa Leger Fernandez (NM-03), Robert Menendez, Jr. (NJ-08), Donald Norcross (NJ-08), Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11), and Monica Tranel (MT-01), and we look forward to supporting their campaigns in November.

“We appreciate each candidate’s support for Israel’s right to self-defense and for the safe return of all hostages being held by Hamas.

“Last night’s primary results demonstrate once again that supporting a strong U.S.-Israel relationship is not just wise policy, but it’s also winning politics.”
