Nice Jewish Boys Kander and Ossoff Campaign Together In Georgia

Jason Kander flew down to Georgia on Wednesday, helping out with fellow Jewish Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign for an open House seat.

Kander almost flipped a Missouri Senate seat last fall, when he came within three points of defeating the Republican incumbent – a remarkable feat given that Hillary Clinton lost the state by double digits.

He’s now the head of Let America Vote, a non-profit group dedicated to fighting right-wing efforts to adopt voter suppression laws.

Like Kander, Ossoff faces an uphill battle to represent the House district, which covers Republican=leaning suburbs outside Atlanta. He will face opponent Karen Handel in a June contest after having come first in a first round election.
