Rep. Edwards thanks JStreetPAC members

June 15th, 2009

When Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD-4) came under attack from the right-wing for her pro-Israel, pro-peace views on Israel and the Middle East, JStreetPAC members pitched in to defend her.

Over 600 JStreetPAC members contributed over $30,000 to Rep. Edwards reelection campaign in under a week - and contributions are still coming in.

Congresswoman Donna Edwards recorded a special thank you video message to JStreetPAC members that you can view on your right.
