.@JamaalBowmanNY DID NOT COME TO PLAY: „Bernie, if the Democratic establishment didn’t gang up on you and jump you, you would have been the nominee for the Democratic Party. You out-raised everyone. They had to jump you in order to beat you. So I just want to say that.“

If Jamaal Bowman defeats Eliot Engel, it will be a shattering loss for the Democratic Party establishment. They threw everything at him: – $5 million in dark money smear ads – Endorsements from Hillary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer And he still won.

FOUR DAYS LEFT! We are being outspent over 2:1, donate now to help us fight back!

Eliot Engel has represented New York’s 16th District for more than three decades. Yet he is willing to say out loud that he only cares about this community when his political position is threatened.

It’s time for us to vote for someone who does care about his community, and is willing to fight for them.

Join us today and chip in what you can to elect Jamaal.

Unbelievable! Engel’s Trump donor-funded Super PAC spent another $300,000 today against us. There’s now $5 million trying to stop our movement. Please rush a donation to help us push back.

As a resident of the Bronx for more than thirty years, a proud member of the Jewish community and a strong supporter of Israel, I feel compelled to express outrage at some of the tactics that a self-identified “pro-Israel” group has used in recent days to attack NY-16 congressional candidate Jamaal Bowman.

Representative Eliot Engel, the incumbent in my district for over three decades, is endorsed by a group called “Democratic Majority for Israel” (DMFI)…

(10.06.2020)

Progressives see hypocrisy rooted—not in principle or policy—but in maintaining power. “It’s almost like all the rules are thrown out the window if you’re not coming from the left,” progressive strategist Rebecca Katz told me.
