The JDCA announced its sixth round of endorsements for the 2018 midterm elections

Miami, FL — The Jewish Democratic Council of America today announced its endorsement of Donna Shalala for Congress.

“JDCA is proud to support an additional 15 progressive, pro-Israel Democrats running in key Senate, House, and gubernatorial races where the Jewish vote will play a large role in determining the outcome of the election,” says Halie Soifer, JDCA Executive Director. “With less than a month to go until November 6th, JDCA has launched an extremely targeted and sophisticated national operation to mobilize Jewish voters in support of Democrats who share our values.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of The Jewish Democratic Council of America,” says Donna Shalala. “As I have done throughout my career, In Congress I will continue to fight for progressive values and for pro-Israel values.”

The JDCA is laser-focused this election and set clear objectives for Election Day on Nov. 6: to flip the House and Senate and gain Democratic control, and to lay the groundwork for a Democratic win in 2020 by supporting gubernatorial candidates whose policies are critical at the state level.
