Washington, D.C. (November 2, 2021) — DMFI PAC Chairman, Mark Mellman, released the following statement tonight:
“Tonight, we are thrilled to have an additional opportunity to congratulate Representative-elect Shontel Brown on her general election victory. We are proud to have provided substantial support to her successful campaign for the Democratic nomination in Ohio’s 11th District.
“This is a tremendous victory, not only for Shontel Brown personally, but also for the pro-Biden-Harris, pro-Israel majority in the Democratic Party. She will be joining Congress at a pivotal moment for the Biden-Harris agenda. Wise and loyal Democrats will give Congresswoman-elect Brown the opportunity to focus on fighting for that agenda without the needless distraction of another primary election in May.
“Shontel Brown’s victory, as a champion of the U.S.-Israel relationship, reaffirms that being pro-Israel is good politics as well as wise policy. Most Democrats support a strong U.S.-Israel alliance, based on both our shared values and our shared interests.”
Since its establishment, DMFI PAC has played a vital role in supporting pro-Israel Democrats, backing winners in the contest for president — as well as in 83 House and Senate races — and winning 28 of 29 primary elections in which we were involved.
