Representative Martin Heinrich (D-NM) is campaigning for the US Senate and very proud to share that J Street has endorsed him. That’s the lobbying group in DC that styles itself “the political home for Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace Americans.” J Street is the more moderate counterpoint to AIPAC.
I emailed J Street and asked about Heinrich’s voting record on issues of importance to Israel. I assumed that the organization’s endorsement must have been preceded by some homework. Alas, I received a reply informing me that J Street does not compile that type of information. !*!*!*!
J Street is endorsing and raising $$ for 60 candidates (all Democrats) but doesn’t know Heinrich’s voting record? Hmmmmm! Guess I’m going to have to do some research myself.
Has anyone heard of the new Pro-Palestine, Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace, Pro-Justice lobbying group in DC? Neither have I.
