A former campaign worker for Rep. James Moran (D-Va.) with ties to the Jewish community is considering running against the controversial congressman. Jeremy Bash, who served as a legal adviser for Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign and whose father is rabbi emeritus of the Arlington-Fairfax Jewish Congregation in Virginia, is considering challenging Moran in the 2004 Democratic primary, along with several other candidates. Moran faces an uncertain future after telling constituents earlier this month that the Jewish community is responsible for the Bush administration’s push for war with Iraq.
