JStreetPAC to Announce First Endorsements Monday
WASHINGTON – The country’s first and only pro-Israel, pro-peace PAC will announce its first endorsements Monday of House candidates committed to strong American leadership to achieve a negotiated, two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In keeping with its mission to establish a new voice on Israel and the Middle East in American politics, Monday’s endorsements will highlight fresh faces – freshmen members of Congress, challengers and competitors for open seats – whose public records and campaign platforms are in line with the PAC’s positions.
Monday’s endorsements will be the first of several rounds that JStreetPAC will make in this election cycle. The PAC will target its efforts in 2008 on no more than a few dozen candidates running for the House and one or two for the Senate.
