Today the Emergency Committee for Israel released a TV ad that highlights Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes’s record on Israel.
The ad focuses on Rep. Himes's collaboration with 53 House Democrats on a letter to President Obama that accuses Israel of the “de facto collective punishment” of the residents of the Gaza Strip – which is a de facto accusation of war crimes.
ECI has made a significant ad buy on cable news and prime time television in Rep. Himes's district, starting today, August 12th.
ECI chairman Bill Kristol told the Washington Post today, "You can't just say you're pro-Israel, you have to be pro-Israel."
The Emergency Committee for Israel will continue to bring the records of political candidates to the attention of American voters in the days and weeks ahead.
