We endorsed 22 more Democrats this week

March 29, 2024

This week, JDCA announced the endorsement of 22 Democrats who share the values and priorities of Jewish voters, including protecting abortion access, defending our democracy, combating antisemitism, and supporting Israel. The endorsements include Senate candidates Ruben Gallego (AZ), Adam Schiff (CA), Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (FL), and Elissa Slotkin (MI), and House candidates George Latimer (NY-16) and Wesley Bell (MO-01). All of our endorsees share our fundamental values as Jewish Americans and are experienced leaders who stand fervently against the right-wing extremism that puts our community at risk. See all of our newly endorsed candidates.


JDCA is the only national organization dedicated to mobilizing Jewish voters to advocate for policies that reflect Jewish values and to elect Democrats who share our priorities. We saw the impact of our work when we helped elect Tom Suozzi in the NY-3 special election and we will build off of that success to flip more seats from red to blue. Our latest round of endorsements – which will not be our last – includes races critical for Democrats’ chances of winning control of the House. Each of these candidates will play a role in helping Democrats win this November.

At a moment of unprecedented danger for Jewish Americans and for our democracy, JDCA is responding with action at the ballot box. JDCA PAC’s new video, ‘Day One,’ contrasts Donald Trump’s fascism with President Biden’s vision for an American future where our rights and democracy are protected. Watch and share the new video.

JDCA’s next virtual event is on Wednesday, April 10, at 12:00 p.m. ET. We’ll discuss immigration policy and the 2024 election with Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Lanae Erickson, Senior Vice President for Social Policy, Education & Politics at Third Way. Register now for this important event.

Joe Lieberman was a trailblazer who made history by becoming the first Jewish American to be nominated on a major party’s ticket when he and Vice President Al Gore won the popular vote in the 2000 presidential election. In his more than two decades as a senator, Lieberman wore his Jewish identity proudly and represented his Jewish values, paving the way for many who came after him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. May his memory be a blessing.

JDCA has been in the news as the national voice of Jewish voters in support of Democrats advocating for policies that reflect our values. Check out JDCA’s recent press mentions.

From now until November, JDCA is laser-focused on reelecting President Biden, flipping the House, and holding the Senate. Everything we stand for as Jewish Americans depends on it. Support JDCA PAC today to help us elect candidates who will fight for the issues Jewish Americans care most about.
