MAGA Republicans just censured Jamaal

Led by an AIPAC-endorsed insurrectionist Republican. Hey John, MAGA Republicans just voted to censure Jamaal. This is a dangerous, partisan attack that will only fuel the vicious attack ads in our district. We need your support to defend our movement from these extremists. If you've saved …

The news just broke

I have an AIPAC-backed challenger. Hey John, It's official: My AIPAC-backed challenger just publicly announced his campaign against me. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment. Republican-funded super PACs are literally standing by to launch attack ads against me. They've been waiting years …

It's headlines like this one...

We can't keep failing our kids like this. Hey John, it’s headlines like this one that remind me why I ran for Congress in the first place: Even in a county many perceive as affluent, a full *22%* of Westchester youth are living in poverty. That’s why I fought hard to deliver $1.6 million …

George Santos just attacked me

You gotta be kidding me. You gotta be kidding me, John. George Santos just called a press conference to attack me. That's right: The lying, cheating conman of a congressman is dedicating his last days in office to trying to bring me down. Santos may be a joke, but his attacks are real. C…

Hostages are being released. Civilians are being spared.

That’s what happens with bold, progressive leaders in Congress. Hi John, At first, Jamaal was one of only 18 representatives calling for a ceasefire. Thanks to their unwavering commitment to the cause, they’ve been swaying more and more of their House colleagues to support it. Now, hostage…
