House - Incumbent

Congressman Jerry McNerney has represented California’s 9th Congressional District since 2007. A recognized expert in the fields of energy, telecommunications and cybersecurity, Rep. McNerney brings a wealth of knowledge to his work as a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Rep. McNerney stands with pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans and believes that American leadership is critical to bridging Israeli and Palestinian support for a two-state solution. In 2007, the Congressman visited Israel and the West Bank, where he met with Israeli leaders, as well as then-Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. The Congressman was a cosignatory to Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s letter advocating for a two-state solution, and has supported a multitude of J Street initiatives, including a strong diplomatic agreement with Iran over its nuclear program. Throughout his time in Congress, Rep. McNerney has been a close ally of J Street. He is a cosponsor of House Resolution 326, which reaffirms Congress’s commitment to two-state solution and opposes settlement expansion and annexation.
