Jewish Democratic Council of America Endorses Delgado
Delgado for Congress is pleased to announce that the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) has endorsed Antonio Delgado for Congress in New York’s 19th Congressional District. The JDCA is a socially progressive, pro-Israel organization that represents Jewish Democrats across the United States.
“JDCA is pleased to announce its endorsement of Antonio Delgado,” said Halie Soifer, Executive Director of JDCA. “We are confident that Antonio will be a strong voice for Jewish and Democratic values in the House when he wins his race in November, and we strongly support his candidacy.“
“I am very proud to have the endorsement of JDCA,” said Delgado. “My connection to Judaism, like that of many Americans, came through love. First, through love for my wife, Lacey Schwartz; and as our family has grown, through my love for and commitment to the Jewish people and Israel. And as a member of Congress, I will do everything in my power to ensure Israel’s security is safeguarded, which is also profoundly in America’s national interest. I am committed to a two-state solution—a Jewish state of Israel and a sovereign Palestinian State—in order to ensure that Israel will fulfill its own aspirations to remain a vibrant Jewish democracy for future generations.”
