Week In Review April 21, 2017
President Donald Trump's approval ratings are the lowest of any president since Gallup began presidential approval surveys in 1953. This strong anti-Trump sentiment has given Democrats hope to capture Health and Human Secretary Tom Price's open congressional seat in Georgia. Voter turnout exceeded expectations, pushing Democratic Jon Ossoff to a run-off on June 20th. Every vote counts.
He will face anti-choice GOP candidate Karen Handel, who is obsessed with defunding Planned Parenthood. She was an executive for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and was responsible for the group's decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood and its cancer screening programs. Ossoff will defend women's access to contraception and a woman's right to choose. He will fight to protect Planned Parenthood funding.
Ossoff, who is Jewish, has visited Israel several times."I am committed to Israel's security as a homeland for the Jewish people and to strengthening the historic, unbreakable bond between the U.S. and Israel," he said.
JAC has thrown its support behind Ossoff. The Democrats can take this anti-choice GOP seat, which was also formally held by Newt Gingrich, but it will not be easy. The GOP and extreme, conservative groups will be pouring millions of dollars into this race. We need Ossoff in Congress. He will be a strong advocate for JAC's issues. Jon Ossoff needs your support.
