WASHINGTON, DC- The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) reacted to the news of Representative Steve Rothman’s (D-NJ) defeat in the Democratic primary election for New Jersey’s 9th Congressional district. NJDC President and CEO David A. Harris said:

“The National Jewish Democratic Council is saddened by the news that Representative Steve Rothman will not be returning to the House of Representatives for a ninth term. As a Jewish Democrat, Rothman has long been a champion for the Democratic platform and the Jewish community’s agenda. He has done a remarkable amount to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel, and has been a leader on a number of domestic issues. We thank him for his 16 years of service to his country and constituents, and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. We also congratulate Representative Bill Pascrell on tonight’s win, and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”
