Candidate Details

Yvette Clarke

House - Incumbent

Congresswoman Yvette Clarke was elected to represent New York’s Ninth Congressional district in 2006 after a six-year career in the City Council. She serves on the Homeland Security Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and within that on the Subcommittees on Communications and Technology, Environment and Climate Change, and Oversight and Investigations.

The Congresswoman supports the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement. Rep. Clarke was an advocate for a diplomatic solution to defang Iran’s nuclear threat and has been a consistent voice in favor of the two-state solution. In the last Congress, she was an early cosponsor of House Resolution 326, which reaffirmed Congress’s commitment to a two-state solution and opposed settlement expansion and annexation.
