JDCA Announces First Round of 2024 Senate Endorsements: Five Incumbents in Competitive Races

August 24, 2023

WASHINGTON – The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA), announced today its first round of 2024 Senate endorsements, following its endorsement of President Joe Biden for re-election in April.

JDCA and JDCA PAC focused early in the 2024 election cycle on incumbent Democratic senators in highly competitive races whose re-election will be critical to ensuring Democrats’ Senate majority.

The five endorsed candidates are Sen. Tammy Baldwin (WI), Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH), Sen. Bob Casey (PA), Sen. Jacky Rosen (NV), and Sen. Jon Tester (MT).

Sen. Tammy Baldwin said:

“I’m proud to have the endorsement of the Jewish Democratic Council of America. I’m committed to standing with JDCA and the Jewish community across Wisconsin to fight antisemitism, defend our democracy, and stand up for our essential rights and freedoms.”

Sen. Jacky Rosen said:

“I’m honored to have the support of the Jewish Democratic Council of America in my re-election campaign in Nevada. As the only former synagogue president and third Jewish woman to serve in the Senate, I’ve been proud to advocate for the needs of our community – including working to combat the disturbing rise in antisemitism in this country, promote the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship, and fight back against attacks on our democracy and reproductive rights. JDCA is doing important work to engage and motivate Jewish Democrats across the country, and I look forward to continuing to work together to fight for our shared values.”

JDCA Political Chair Izzy Klein, former Communications Director for Sen. Chuck Schumer (NY), said:

“JDCA’s Board of Directors and Political team are proud to announce the first slate of Senate endorsements for the 2024 cycle. These five Senators are close friends and partners of JDCA, and their races will be critical to ensuring we defend and expand our Senate majority in 2024 as we retake the House and re-elect President Biden.

“In the last three cycles, JDCA has played a critical role in close Senate races across the country, and we’ve developed a model of targeting races where the Jewish vote can make the difference in support of Democrats. We plan to expand on that success in 2024 and ensure that President Biden has a Senate that will work with him on his ongoing mission to restore the soul of our nation.

“Stay tuned over the weeks and months to come for more endorsements from JDCA.”
