Voters Show Their Support For Jewish Candidates On Social Media

Correction Appended

November 6 has finally arrived after an long, loud and politically fraud midterm season.

Many Democrats are hoping there will be a “blue wave” that could help them take over the House and possibly even the Senate. Jewish candidates, however, stand an even better chance of improving their share of the House and the Senate.

According to Forward modeling predictions, Jews are likely to hold 27 seats — 25 Democrats and two Republicans — in the House — an eye-popping 18% improvement over the 23 they hold now.

Here are a few snapshots from social media of voters across the country showing their support for Jewish candidates across the political spectrum.

Max Rose (D) — NY 11

Ameer Benno (R) — NY 4

Elaine Luria (D) — VA 2

Lauren Baer (D) — FL 18

Lee Zeldin (R) — NY 1

Dean Phillips (D) — MN 3

Dana Balter (D) — NY 24

Correction, January 2, 2019: 1:20 p.m. An earlier version of this story erroneously misrepresented candidate Marty Nothstein as Jewish.
