Jewish Democratic Council of America chair Ron Klein told the Forward that the organization decided to endorse Phillips in part because he has pledged not to take any funds from corporate political action committees, which raise funds from special interests.

“That’s a pretty clear statement of intent to make sure you’re not going to be influenced,” Klein said. “[He’s] taking a very clear path.”
