Naomi Levin, the Republican challenger facing Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) in New York’s 10th congressional district, said Thursday that Nadler’s refusal to attend the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, was disqualifying.
“One of my key issues is strengthening our national security,” Levin said.
She argued that Nadler “consistently supports policies that weaken our national security.
Levin noted that Nadler had voted for the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995 but still refused to support the move — which merely implemented the policy he had directed the executive branch to undertake.
Levin is considered a long shot in the heavily Democratic district, but hopes to provide a real alternative to constituents and to rally like-minded candidates nationwide against Democrats who have turned their backs on Israel and jeopardized U.S. national security in general.
