Jewish Democratic Challengers

As we reported in our pages this week, there are a dozen Jewish Democrats competing for Republican-held seats in the U.S. House this November. If the Democrats pick up the 15 seats they need to win back a majority, it will likely be, in part, because several of these folks win their races.

Here’s some quick updates: Republicans pull ads for Randy Graff, the opponent of Gabrielle Giffords, while Bush passes the hat for Gus Bilirakis, the opponent of Phyllis Busansky in Florida 9.

John Yarmuth takes off the gloves against Anne Northrup in Kentucky 3, while Paul Aronsohn walks the walk against Scott Garrett in New Jersey 5.
