Formerly a two-term Governor of New Hampshire, Maggie Hassan has represented the state in the Senate since narrowly winning election to the body in 2016. Hassan had previously served in the New Hampshire State Senate, representing the 23rd District from 2004 to 2010. During her time in that office, she served as Majority Leader, President pro tem, and Assistant Democratic Whip. Before entering public service, Hassan was Information Officer for the Massachusetts Department of Social Services from 1980 to 1982.
Senator Hassan identifies closely with the core values of J Street and pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans. She believes Israel and the United States have an unshakeable alliance built on shared values, and is committed to maintaining Israel’s qualitative military edge. The Senator firmly maintains that the only way to secure enduring peace and prosperity for Israel is through bilateral negotiations toward a two-state solution; she also supported the JCPOA.
