I could not agree more with the Jewish Times’ endorsement of Chris Van Hollen to replace the retiring Barbara Mikulski as our next U.S. Senator. In her many years in the Senate, Mikulski had a very pro-Israel voting record. In contrast, Donna Edwards, who is running against Van Hollen, does not have a favorable voting record toward the State of Israel. According to The Baltimore Sun, “Edwards’ record on Israel represents a tangible divergence from Congressman Van Hollen of Montgomery County, who has supported many pro-Israel resolutions while in Congress.”
Van Hollen has led on many important issues since being elected to the House of Representatives in 2002, and we should support him as our next senator from Maryland.
