COLUMBUS, OH — Today the Ted Strickland for Senate campaign announced that Ted has earned the endorsement of JStreetPAC.
JStreetPAC was established in 2008 as the first-ever federal political action committee (PAC) to explicitly promote American leadership to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The PAC’s goal is to demonstrate the depth and breadth of political support that exists for candidates who speak out in favor of a diplomacy-first approach to advancing US interests in the Middle East and promoting peace and security for Israel.
“JStreetPAC is proud to support Governor Strickland’s campaign,” said Ben Shnider, JStreetPAC National Political Director. “The Governor understands that a diplomacy-first approach to the Middle East, as embodied by the recent Iran nuclear deal, is the best way of advancing shared US and Israeli interests in regional security.”
“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of this organization that is working so hard to bring peace to a war-torn region,” said Ted Strickland. “My most important priority is keeping Americans safe. Diplomacy based on deeply held American values is how we will find a true solution to the most intractable foreign policy challenges. Israel has no greater friend than America, and in the U.S. Senate I will continue to fight for our shared commitment to securing peace in the Middle East.”
