Rep. James Moran (D-Va.) told local Democratic officials that Jewish organizations will raise money and take over a campaign to defeat him. Moran was chastised last month for saying the Jewish community is behind the Bush administration’s push for war in Iraq. He told the Alexandria, Va., Democratic Committee on Monday that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is raising $2 million for a campaign against him, including fund-raising in Florida, and will “take over” efforts to defeat him. AIPAC spokeswoman Rebecca Dinar said the organization does not raise funds for political races or endorse candidates.
