House - Incumbent

Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester has served as Delaware’s at-large member of Congress since 2017. Prior to serving in Congress, Rep.

She went on to serve in the cabinets of two Delaware governors as the state’s first African-American woman Secretary of Labor, and as Delaware’s first African-American Deputy Secretary of Health and Social Services and State Personnel Director. In 2004, Blunt Rochester left government service to become the CEO of the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League, an action-oriented, public policy research think-tank focused on the inclusion of people of color in American society.

Rep. Blunt Rochester has been a public champion of J Street’s issues since her first days in office. In her most recent-term, she also co-sponsored House Resolution 326, which reaffirmed Congress’s commitment to two-state solution and opposed settlement expansion and annexation.
