JSTREETPAC JOINS LONG LIST OF ENDORSEMENTS FOR LESLIE COCKBURN

WARRENTON, VA– JStreetPAC, the largest pro-Israel PAC in the country, has endorsed Leslie Cockburn for Congress in Virginia’s 5th district. This is a major endorsement that reflects Leslie’s life-long fight commitment to standing up for the state of Israel and pursuing peace.
“I am honored to be endorsed by the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement. Since 2008, JStreetPAC has been working with candidates who support Israel, diplomacy and a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict” said Leslie Cockburn, Democratic nominee for Virginia’s 5th district. “I look forward to having their support as I fight against dangerous, irresponsible foreign policy and battle the bigotry and intolerance that we have seen recently in our district.”
“We are proud to endorse Leslie Cockburn, who represents the goals and values of American Jews and pro-Israel voters in Virginia’s 5th District and across the country,” said Aaron Davis, JStreet Political Director. He continued, “By defeating President Trump’s congressional enablers and empowering a new wave of leaders like Leslie, we can push back on policies that are exacerbating conflict and chaos in the Middle East.”
JStreetPAC joins a growing list of diverse groups endorsing the Democratic nominee for Virginia’s 5th district, which shows her commitment to fight for everyone in Virginia’s 5th district. These include: End Citizens United, League of Conservation Voters, Progressive Caucus PAC, Swing Left, Sierra Club, Planned Parenthood, National Committee for Preservation of Social Security and Medicare, `Moms Demand Action.
