Listed in: NJDC News, Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC- National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) Chair Marc R. Stanley issued the following statement in response to the news that Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) will not be seeking re-election:

“The National Jewish Democratic Council is saddened by the news that our dear friend Senator Carl Levin will not be seeking re-election. Levin has been an important voice in the Senate since 1979—especially in the Armed Services Committee, where he worked to deepen the U.S.-Israel relationship and bolster the armed forces. Levin will leave behind a proud legacy that should serve as an example to future generations of young Jews forging careers in public service. Levin has been a true friend to NJDC over the years and we will miss his powerful voice in Congress. We wish him and his family nothing but the best.”
