The former middle school principal leads incumbent Rep. Eliot Engel two-to-one, but the mail-in votes have not been counted.
The Democratic Majority for Israel PAC came under fire this week for running an ad in the district showing that Jamaal Bowman failed in the past to pay his taxes.
I am alarmed that he made no mention of the threats facing Israel, including murderous acts that have not even spared our own district.
This is a critical moment for our democracy and our hopes for a more just world. Liberal and progressive Jews have a meaningful role to play in the fight for justice.
There is no country anywhere, facing the same threats as Israel, that has a better human rights record.
Engel is a moderate Democrat and a leading pro-Israel voice in Congress who voted against the Iran nuclear deal in 2015.
