Democratic pro-Israel group endorses Biden for president

Hours after US President Joe Biden announced that he would be seeking re-election, the Democratic Majority for Israel’s political action committee has announced that it will be endorsing the incumbent.
“Just as he has fulfilled his promise to deliver for America’s working families as President, so too has President Biden delivered on his commitment to strengthen the mutually beneficial alliance between the United States and Israel,” says a statement from Mark Mellman, who heads the centrist group established in 2019 amid waning support for the Jewish state in the Democratic party.
“When it comes to securing America’s place as a leader in cyber security, technology, and climate and energy solutions, we know that the US-Israel relationship is top of mind for President Biden. And when it comes to the unfair demonization and delegitimization of the world’s only Jewish state at home or abroad, Israel has no greater defender than the Biden-Harris administration,” Mellman adds.
