National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) Chair Marc R. Stanley and NJDC President and CEO David A.

The National Jewish Democratic Council is pleased to see that Lieutenant Governor Brian Schatz has been selected to serve in the United States Senate. The late Senator Inouye left behind a tremendous record of partnership with the Jewish and pro-Israel communities—and we are fully confident that Brian Schatz will continue that robust partnership.  The entire NJDC family wishes Schatz the best of luck and we look forward to working with him in the future.
