A telling reaction to Berman’s loss (and Sherman’s win)


I don't usually post press releases, but this one seemed somewhat telling, so I thought I'd share it. It comes from the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC), which "maximizes Jewish support for Democrats at the federal and state levels of government."

NJDC Reacts to Berman/Sherman Result

WASHINGTON, DC - The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) reacted to Representative Howard Berman's defeat and Representative Brad Sherman's win in California's 30th Congressional district. NJDC President and CEO David A. Harris said:

"One of the unfortunate truths of the congressional race in California's 30th District that we've known all along is that no matter which Democrat wins, one good Democratic representative will not return to Capitol Hill -- and the House of Representatives will lose a good Jewish Democrat. The National Jewish Democratic Council is saddened by the news that Representative Howard Berman will indeed not be returning to the House of Representatives for another term -- even as we congratulate Representative Brad Sherman on tonight's win. We very much look forward to continuing our close relationship with Rep. Sherman as he returns to Capitol Hill.

"As a Jewish Democrat, Berman has long been a champion for policies supported by the sweeping majority of American Jews -- especially regarding support for Israel and stopping Iran's nuclear program. Berman was also a friend of NJDC's and his powerful voice in Congress will surely be missed. We wish Berman the best of luck in his future endeavors."
