NY: Israel lobby takes down “Squad” member in most expensive US House primary ever

Source: Politico

“Rep. Jamaal Bowman was trounced in a suburban New York race that became a referendum on progressives’ attitudes toward Israel and the most expensive House primary in U.S. history. Moderate Democrat George Latimer bested Bowman on Tuesday by 17 points with 88 percent of the vote in, making Bowman the first member of the Squad to lose an election since the far-left [sic] group formed in 2018. … A leading pro-Israel group spent more than $14 million on TV ads to unseat [Bowman]. And as the results rolled in, it became clear that AIPAC and its super PAC United Democracy Project had succeeded in making an example of the two-term member of Congress for routinely criticizing the Israeli offensive in Gaza.” (06/25/24)
