Jeremy Ben-Ami, JStreetPAC Executive Director, released the following statement today on JStreetPAC's recent fundraising efforts for Congressman Steve Cohen's (TN-9) reelection campaign:
JStreetPAC is proud to announce that we have raised over $30,000 for Congressman Steve Cohen's reelection campaign from over 300 JStreetPAC supporters, as he faces a tough reelection fight in his Memphis, TN district. Congressman Cohen has consistently demonstrated his pro-Israel, pro-peace credentials in Congress. As a lead signatory on a key letter backing President Obama's balanced approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Cohen consistently advocates for strong American leadership to achieve a two-state solution. American leadership, from both President Obama and Congress, is sorely needed if we are to finally realize the dream of a safe, secure, Jewish, democratic Israel. We will continue to stand with members of Congress who share JStreetPAC's commitment to secure Israel's future through strong American leadership in pursuit of a two-state solution.
