J Street Annual Conference to Host Bernie Sanders, Other Leading Senators, Haaretz

“Bernie Sanders and at least three other prominent Democratic senators will speak this year at left-wing J Street’s annual conference in mid-April. Sanders, a former presidential candidate and Vermont senator, also spoke before the left-wing Jewish group’s conference last year. His second appearance before the conference is a sign of his growing focus on foreign policy issues.  The most senior Democratic Senator to address the conference this year will be Dick Durbin (D-IL), who is the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate. Durbin’s appearance is considered an achievement for J Street. Its past conferences have hosted senior speakers from the Obama administration and the House of Representatives but never a senator as senior as Durbin. Another interesting name on the list of speakers this year is Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), considered a relatively hawkish Democrat on issues related to Israel and the Middle East….In addition to these three veteran Senators, J Street will also host Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) first elected to the Senate in 2012. Schatz, like Cardin and Sanders, is Jewish.”
