It’s Not Simply AIPAC: How Jamaal Bowman Alienated Voters Who As soon as Supported Him


If the polling is correct, Rep. Jamaal Bowman is the heavy underdog in Tuesday’s Democratic main for New York’s sixteenth Congressional District.

The topline story of the race is, understandably, pro-Israel teams’ record-breaking spending in opposition to Bowman, a passionate pro-Palestinian advocate who has dubbed Israel’s invasion of Gaza a “genocide.” Tremendous PACs backing Bowman’s challenger, Westchester County Govt George Latimer, have outspent pro-Bowman tremendous PACs on the airwaves by a 9-to-1 margin, serving to make it the costliest Home main in historical past. The impartial spending arm of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee alone has spent $14.6 million on tv, digital and direct-mail ads.

“They are so afraid of us — those who oppose the working class, multiracial, multieconomic, multicultural democracy that we are trying to build,” Bowman instructed volunteers on the brink of canvas the Bronx’s Co-Op Metropolis neighborhood on Could 26. “They’re spending more money in this race than they have ever spent in the history of any race. That’s how afraid AIPAC is.”

It’s inconceivable to foretell the outcomes of a counterfactual state of affairs the place Bowman didn’t face this type of spending. However whereas he would have undoubtedly fared higher if he weren’t up in opposition to an avalanche of tremendous PAC cash, his issues predate the lopsided promoting blitz.

Bowman, 48, was trailing Latimer, 70, by 17 share factors in early April, earlier than promoting started, in accordance with a ballot commissioned by the Democratic Majority for Israel PAC, which is supporting Latimer. The mid-April inner ballot launched by Bowman’s marketing campaign, in contrast, had him up by one share level.

The Latimer marketing campaign’s personal inner polling in January, reviewed by HuffPost, was someplace in between these two surveys, exhibiting the county government forward by 10 factors. Latimer was additionally extra widespread in accordance with their very own polling, with 67% of district voters having a positive view of him and simply 12% having an unfavorable view, in contrast with 49% favorable and 38% unfavorable for Bowman. Bowman’s group, for its half, highlighted voter help for a cease-fire within the area as proof that his positions stay widespread. (Bowman referred to as for a cease-fire on Oct. 16.)

Bowman’s help within the district, which features a sliver of the northeastern Bronx and all of decrease Westchester County — a mixture of various working-class cities and leafy, prosperous suburbs — has been tenuous from the second he received in 2020. His vote in opposition to the bipartisan infrastructure invoice in 2021 and his pulling of the fireplace alarm in Congress this previous September additional undermined his standing with many moderate-to-liberal Democrats. Following the Hamas assault on Oct. 7, his shift away from an even-handed posture on Israel-Palestine towards a tough left-wing stance price him some progressive Jewish help and motivated current Jewish detractors to get extra lively in politics.

“I was always having to be his defender. And I could no longer defend his behavior.”

– Danielle Tagger-Epstein, former Bowman supporter and donor

“I was always having to be his defender,” stated Danielle Tagger-Epstein, chair of the Rye Metropolis Democratic Committee and a Bowman donor as not too long ago as January 2023. “And I could no longer defend his behavior.”

Earlier than Oct. 7, Tagger-Epstein had been annoyed with Bowman’s failure to comply with via on her efforts to rearrange conferences together with her rabbi and different Jewish pals, in addition to his July 2023 determination to not attend Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s speech to Congress. (Bowman cited Herzog’s failure to do extra to guard Palestinian human rights; nevertheless, critics word that Herzog is a figurehead slightly than a political chief.)

“After October 7, I couldn’t even look him in the face,” stated Tagger-Epstein, who can be lively in J Road, a liberal pro-Israel group.

All of these components created an surroundings the place Latimer, a 35-year veteran of suburban politics with a powerful native base for help and a fame as a detail-obsessed incrementalist, felt comfy coming into the race with AIPAC’s help. Earlier than any cash even hit the airwaves or mailboxes, the Latimer marketing campaign and allied teams used a gradual stream of opposition analysis about Bowman’s previous and current views — customary fare in any marketing campaign — to color him as a radical activist slightly than an efficient lawmaker.

“He’s really his own worst enemy,” added a J Road activist who requested anonymity to guard their relationship with Bowman within the occasion of his victory. The voter, who sees AIPAC as dangerous for each U.S. political integrity and Israel’s long-term pursuits, misplaced endurance with Bowman’s most anti-Israel feedback and stances after defending the congressman to the particular person’s coreligionists for therefore a few years.

“He created alliances that shouldn’t be created. I shouldn’t be allying with an AIPAC candidate,” the J Road activist stated.

A New York Democratic strategist supportive of Bowman’s bid had an identical evaluation.

“AIPAC was going to make a lot of noise regardless. He made it a lot easier. He became a bogeyman,” stated the strategist, who requested for anonymity for skilled causes. “I’m upset that AIPAC is going to get wins this cycle from people who had already written their death sentences for lots of other reasons.”

Bowman speaks at a rally in November convened by left-wing Jews calling for a cease-fire in Israel’s battle in Gaza. He’s up in opposition to Westchester County Govt George Latimer in Tuesday’s Democratic main for New York’s sixteenth Congressional District.

Out Of The Frying Pan And Into The Hearth

Bowman, who was first elected in 2020, received reelection simply in 2022. However he benefited drastically from his opponents’ lack of ability to unite behind a single challenger: Westchester County legislators Vedat Gashi and Catherine Parker, who each ran in opposition to him, cut up the anti-Bowman vote.

In consequence, his margin of victory obscured the simmering frustration with him amongst registered Democrats. Bowman would solely obtain 54% of the whole ballots solid.

It’s the form of skinny majority that may have served as a warning concerning the precariousness of his standing within the district.

However concerns of political self-interest on the subject of Israel have been removed from Bowman’s thoughts in the beginning of his second time period. His journey to Israel in 2021 had really made him much less assured in Israeli leaders’ willingness to make the compromises essential to create a Palestinian state, main him to lean in to his pro-Palestinian convictions.

Along with boycotting Herzog’s speech, Bowman co-sponsored Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-Mich.) decision recognizing the “nakba,” or disaster, the Palestinian time period for the mass expulsion Jewish forces inflicted on them through the creation of Israel. The decision rankled some native Jewish leaders as a result of it endorsed a proper of return for Palestinian refugees to Israel’s internationally acknowledged borders, which might make Jews a minority in Israel and which even its proponents admit would finish Israel as a particularly “Jewish” state.

That was all earlier than the present battle. The Palestinian group Hamas’ lethal assault on Oct. 7 and Israel’s ferocious response within the eight months since have hardened views on both facet of the Israeli-Palestinian battle, together with for a lot of in the US. In Westchester County, the place some 130,000 residents are Jewish — a bit of over one-tenth of the inhabitants, who comprise a comparatively bigger share of the Democratic main citizens — the worldwide state of affairs has added volatility to a problem the place Bowman already didn’t see eye to eye with many Jewish constituents.

On Oct. 7, the Hamas-led assault killed 1,100 Israelis, largely civilians, and captured 250 hostages. For the broad mainstream of pro-Israel U.S. Jews, the impression of the day has been lasting and radicalizing, conjuring recollections of anti-Jewish violence and persecution from the times of the Holocaust.

In response, Israel launched a army operation in Gaza, which has killed greater than 37,000 Palestinians, nearly all of them civilians; laid waste to the constructed infrastructure of the area, displacing virtually all 2.1 million Gazans; and precipitated extreme shortages of meals and primary medical provides. For progressives and different People sympathetic to the Palestinian trigger, this has been a legal battle of annihilation — the capstone of a long time of oppression, together with ethnic cleaning in 1948, a army occupation of Palestinian lands since 1967 and a blockade of Gaza since 2007.

Bowman’s response to the violence was fast. He condemned Hamas’ “horrific attacks” in a written assertion on Oct. 7, blasted an Oct. 8 pro-Palestine rally the place contributors praised the Hamas assault, and later castigated a neighborhood chapter of the Black Lives Matter motion for lionizing the Hamas assailants.

However he’s decidedly among the many contingent of people that have been pushed to the left by Israel’s response to Oct. 7.

Not like when he ran in 2020 and 2022, there may be now nearly no daylight between Bowman and the activist left on the subject of Palestine. In late October final 12 months, Bowman declined to vote for a nonbinding decision condemning Hamas on the grounds it failed to handle “the urgent need for de-escalation” amid rising Palestinian civilian casualties. Talking at a pro-Palestinian rally in White Plains, New York, in November, he even referred to as allegations of sexual assault through the Hamas assault unsubstantiated “propaganda.” Bowman repudiated these claims in late March when a video of his feedback emerged, however the quote has made it into AIPAC’s digital adverts.

Bowman has additionally taken warmth from some Jewish voters for what many see as a scarcity of emotional sensitivity. Though he attended a rally for the victims of Oct. 7 in Washington and has met with the households of Israeli hostages, Jewish constituents seen Bowman’s absence on the quite a few local people vigils for the Israeli lifeless and hostages following Oct. 7, whilst he made impassioned appearances at pro-Palestine rallies.

For Diana Lovett, a mother and small enterprise proprietor from New Rochelle, New York, who voted for Bowman in 2020 and held a fundraiser for him in 2022, his absence on the numerous native Oct. 7 vigils — there have been occasions all around the district — was a part of the explanation why she started to lose religion in him.

“There were many missed moments to be in community with and in solidarity with the Jewish community,” she stated.

Latimer, in contrast, was a featured speaker on the first vigil and introduced the home down together with his characterization of the battle in opposition to Hamas as a battle of fine versus evil. Many attendees got here as much as him in tears afterward, in accordance with a number of individuals who have been current.

“There are many Jews like me who understand the legacy of the civil rights era and the importance of not letting AIPAC distort our democracy.”

– Howard Horowitz, Bowman supporter

Bowman’s group, nevertheless, stated he was discouraged from attending. When he reached out to the Westchester Jewish Council about attending the primary and largest community-wide vigil for victims of Oct. 7 at a synagogue in White Plains, the umbrella group’s CEO, Elliot Forchheimer, discouraged Bowman from attending, in accordance with a senior Bowman aide, who requested anonymity to talk freely. Forchheimer knowledgeable Bowman that he would probably be the one federally elected official there, that it was unclear how he can be acquired and that it might probably be higher for him to skip the occasion, the aide added.

Forchheimer didn’t reply to a number of requests for remark concerning the dialog.

“He got beaten up by the Jewish community so much when he was trying to work in good faith,” stated a progressive Jewish Democrat now supporting Latimer, who requested anonymity to guard neighborhood relationships. “Just like they were hostile to him, he was getting more and more hostile to the community.”

However Bowman retains a big core of help from progressive Jews affiliated with the left-wing group Jews for Racial and Financial Justice, which counts 500 members within the district, and Jewish Voice for Peace, a smaller group that’s explicitly anti-Zionist. In early June, JFREJ’s Jews for Jamaal initiative turned out about 100 individuals for a bagels occasion in Hastings-on-Hudson, a village in Westchester County, earlier than heading out to canvass the district.

These Jews see Bowman as a tribune of their Jewish dedication to social justice, from the development of Black civil rights to the safety of Palestinian human rights.

“There are many Jews like me who understand the legacy of the civil rights era and the importance of not letting AIPAC distort our democracy,” stated Howard Horowitz, a Bowman supporter and retired advertising government from New Rochelle who’s lively in Jewish Voice for Peace. “I’m concerned about the future of the Jewish community and about their values.”

Iris Arno, a former college board member and local weather activist from Hastings-on-Hudson who’s lively in Jews for Jamaal, has been annoyed with the extent of rancor she’s witnessed towards Bowman from different Jews. She has seen Bowman indicators round city defaced, together with one the place an Israeli hostage poster was pasted over his face.

“Jamaal is unfairly called antisemitic. I would not support someone who is antisemitic,” she stated. “He is faulted for calling for a cease-fire early on, calling for humanitarian aid and being against the Netanyahu government, which I think many Jews are, both here and in Israel.”

Navigating An Uneasy Relationship

Bowman’s challenges with the mainstream Jewish neighborhood date to his upset election win in 2020, however relations with the constituency have deteriorated since then.

Then-Rep. Eliot Engel, the three-decade Jewish incumbent Bowman unseated in 2020, was broadly widespread with the district’s Jewish neighborhood. As chair of the Home Overseas Affairs Committee, Engel was each a home liberal and a staunch AIPAC ally who supported Israel uncritically.

“Engel was terrific. And Bowman was — he was OK. He was more J Street,” stated Carole Daman, a retired lawyer and AIPAC activist from New Rochelle who has by no means voted for Bowman however is mobilizing in opposition to him for the primary time. “But then, as time has gone on, he’s gotten more affiliated with Rashida Tlaib.”

Bowman took the problem of addressing Jewish distrust critically each earlier than and after his 2020 win. With the help and recommendation of JFREJ and its political arm, the Jewish Vote, Bowman cultivated a progressive Jewish constituency throughout his first marketing campaign. JFREJ pioneered an ad-hoc group, Jews for Jamaal, and helped Bowman craft an Israel-Palestine coverage platform that was directly genuine and worded to keep away from inflaming passions. On his marketing campaign web site’s detailed international coverage web page, he backed “U.S. aid to help Israel confront [its] security challenges,” but additionally opposed subsidizing “the continued occupation of the Palestinian people.”

Bowman additionally engaged even his extra conservative pro-Israel critics. He responded to an open letter criticizing him from Avi Weiss, a distinguished Fashionable Orthodox rabbi in a Bronx neighborhood later drawn out of the district, with an open letter of his personal. In it, Bowman laid out his help for a two-state resolution and his opposition to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions motion — which calls on People to divest from Israeli monetary pursuits to strain the Israeli authorities on its relations to Palestine — whilst he related the issue of Palestinian life below Israeli occupation to the racism and police brutality Black People expertise.

“I know that we both have much to learn from each other’s experiences, and I hope that you may give me the chance,” he concluded.

Following Bowman’s 2020 victory, Mark Mellman, the Democratic pollster who based the Democratic Majority for Israel, conceded to HuffPost that Bowman’s cautious messaging and outreach to the Jewish neighborhood “did work to obfuscate the difference” between himself and Engel on Israel coverage.

Quickly, Bowman would get reinforcements. J Road, which is supportive of elevated U.S. strain on the Jewish state to cease increasing settlements and violating Palestinian human rights, endorsed him forward of the 2020 normal election.

In his first time period, Bowman’s voting document on Israel — and willingness to defy the socialist left — burnished his fame amongst even some critics. Bowman’s go to to Israel with J Road in November 2021 notably price him the endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America, which backs BDS and is anti-Zionist.

J Road endorsed Bowman’s reelection in 2022; the group’s tremendous PAC spent $100,000 on digital adverts backing his bid.

“Now you have people without knowledge or real understanding blaming Jewish people for what Israel is doing, which is leading to the rise of antisemitism.”

– Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.)

J Road will not be precisely a kingmaker in Westchester County. And the group, whose tremendous PAC has invested six-figure sums for different Democrats dealing with AIPAC barrages, has determined to not spend in Democratic main elections this cycle.

However whereas J Road was supporting Bowman, its activists acted as a volunteer speedy response group for him inside the Westchester Jewish Council, the county’s influential umbrella group of synagogues and mainstream Jewish organizations (JFREJ will not be affiliated with the group). J Road leaders publicly counseled him for supporting U.S. funding for the Iron Dome defensive expertise system and helped him draft responses to assaults from native rabbis and the Westchester Jewish Council.

Nevertheless, two years later, issues look very completely different. By late January 2024, J Road had had sufficient of Bowman and withdrew its endorsement. The final straws for the group have been Bowman embracing the time period “genocide” to explain Israel’s conduct in Gaza and his reward for controversial anti-Israel scholar Norman Finkelstein at a rally in Yonkers, New York, the place Finkelstein had additionally appeared, in accordance with individuals conversant in J Road’s pondering. (Bowman subsequently expressed remorse for praising Finkelstein, who initially likened the Oct. 7 assault to the Warsaw Ghetto Rebellion throughout WWII and stated it “warms every fiber of my soul.”)

Latimer now cites the rescinded endorsement as proof that Bowman is outdoors the mainstream.

“He said things like ‘genocide,’ ‘apartheid.’ That’s why J Street pulled their endorsement,” Latimer instructed HuffPost in late Could.

Bowman continues to sound much less and fewer like Israel’s progressive supporters — the sorts of people who find themselves favorable to robust measures like conditioning help but nonetheless ardently help the thought of a Jewish nation. In a current podcast interview, for instance, he characterised U.S. help for Israel as a gesture of solidarity for “another settler colonial project.”

Bowman has additionally reconciled with the Democratic Socialists of America. The group’s New York Metropolis chapter endorsed him in late Could.

In audio of his Could 25 endorsement interview, Bowman, for the primary time, expressed openness to embracing the BDS motion and promised to not vote to fund Iron Dome once more, saying he had solely performed so initially as a result of he didn’t need his “‘no’ vote to be misinterpreted as ‘I want Jews to be killed.’”

Studying what Bowman stated to the socialist group was “the absolute final straw for people who might have been in the middle,” stated the Jewish Democrat who now helps Latimer.

In an interview after his Could 26 occasion in Co-Op Metropolis, HuffPost requested Bowman to make his case to progressive Jewish voters who would possibly share his concern about Palestinian rights however are uncomfortable together with his strident rhetoric. He argued that his effort to pressure modifications in Israeli insurance policies would really assist scale back antisemitism in the US.

“We haven’t had honest conversations about Israel being held accountable. And that’s why we are in this horrible place right now, because we’ve allowed Israel to continue to say they represent all of the Jewish people,” he stated. “Now you have people without knowledge or real understanding blaming Jewish people for what Israel is doing, which is leading to the rise of antisemitism.”

Westchester County Executive George Latimer entered the race with higher net favorability ratings than Bowman, according to polling commissioned by his campaign.

‘American Revolutions’ Vs. The ‘Real Guts’ Of Coverage

Latimer’s marketing campaign literature and stump speech are plastered with the slogan “real progressive results, not rhetoric.”

Bowman highlighted his disagreement with this framing through the first televised debate with Latimer on Could 13, arguing in opposition to a zero-sum tradeoff.

“Rhetoric creates movements in grassroots organizing that leads to American revolutions! That is what we need in this moment,” Bowman declared. “We need rhetoric and results. We have both.”

However Bowman’s historical past of radical feedback — and one controversial vote specifically — have made his revolutionary imaginative and prescient a more durable promote to some suburbanites.

Shortly after Latimer obtained into the race, destructive tales about Bowman started popping up in mainstream information shops. As a center college principal, Bowman dabbled in 9/11 conspiracy theories and honored a convicted cop killer on the partitions of his college. It additionally emerged that Bowman had declined to sentence the inclusion of Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam and a rabid antisemite, in a Black historical past mural within the district, whilst he clarified that he disagrees with Farrakhan’s antisemitism.

Likewise, Bowman has an affordable clarification for his determination to vote in opposition to the bipartisan infrastructure framework invoice together with 5 different progressives. He needed to maintain strain on for a vote on the extra formidable Construct Again Higher invoice. The latter invoice handed the Home and stalled within the Senate, however turned the idea for the climate-focused Inflation Discount Act.

Bowman noticed the distributional impression of the BIF invoice as insufficient, telling HuffPost, “91% of those BIF jobs go to white men. This is a majority minority district. Where’s our economic development program?”

However the symbolic vote in opposition to the BIF invoice has supplied the one largest assault line for AIPAC to hammer him on.

“The things that [Bowman and other leftists] are voting against because they’re not getting everything they want, to me, sounds very much like children who are packing up their toys and going home,” stated Jim Metzger, an architect and photographer from Hastings-on-Hudson who supported Bowman in 2022. Metzger, who counts himself as a progressive Zionist deeply against the insurance policies of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was additionally upset in Bowman’s response to the Oct. 7 assault and emotionally pleaded with Latimer to run after he spoke on the Hastings-on-Hudson Oct. 7 vigil.

As a chief government obsessive about technocratic reforms, Latimer makes for a transparent foil to Bowman’s left-wing idealism. He loves discussing what he calls the “real guts” of policymaking — understanding, for instance, tips on how to deliver branches of presidency collectively to improve the county’s electrical automobile charging community or which federal Housing and City Growth officers to prevail upon for a brand new inexpensive housing grant.

Given Latimer’s deal with such particulars, HuffPost requested for his overarching coverage imaginative and prescient. He argued his obsession with incrementalism and correct implementation are the solutions to Donald Trump’s strongman idea of governance — the world of “I alone can fix it.”

“We say to people, ‘Don’t give all the power to one person. We in democracy can still solve problems. It takes time, but we can show you how to get real results,’” Latimer stated.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer has cast himself as an incrementalist policy wonk. He has also played to fears about Bowman's appeal among voters of color.

Latimer Strikes Proper — And Will get Ugly

After all, AIPAC’s intervention has been essential to Latimer’s candidacy. Whereas the group’s largesse has amplified a real grassroots revolt in opposition to Bowman on this case, there isn’t a doubt its injection of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} into congressional primaries has helped restrict the scope of debate about Israel. Any lawmaker considering, for instance, imposing stricter situations on U.S. help to Israel dangers dealing with a deluge of pro-Israel cash.

Whereas Bowman has shifted left on world points, Latimer, who insists his pragmatic model is “progressive,” has shifted proper over the course of the race as he seeks to vacuum up each final anti-Bowman vote. He has stated he opposes tax will increase of any form, a stance that would put him at odds with President Joe Biden, who needs to undo a number of the Trump tax cuts for the rich and massive firms.

Whereas talking to HuffPost, Latimer turned defensive when pressed to reply for his alliance with AIPAC, which, as a single-issue group, additionally endorsed dozens of Home Republicans who objected to certifying the 2020 election outcomes.

“I have what I consider a mainstream position on Israel,” he stated. “Most House Democrats feel what I feel.”

What are Latimer’s “mainstream” views? He holds Israel’s Arab neighbors and Palestinian negotiating companions virtually completely chargeable for the Palestinian failure to acquire statehood and freedom from occupation, the problem that continues to be on the coronary heart of the regional violence.

“Now you have a very conservative Israel government — how shocked am I at that? The progressive Israeli governments never got enough cooperation to move forward.”

– George Latimer, Westchester County Govt

“The Israeli effort to find a dance partner in the Arab world has been hard to find — ’67 war, ’73 War, intifada,” Latimer stated. “Now you have a very conservative Israel government — how shocked am I at that? The progressive Israeli governments never got enough cooperation to move forward.”

When HuffPost tried to interject a query about whether or not it would nonetheless have been inadvisable for consecutive Israeli governments to constantly construct Jewish settlements on conquered land it supposedly needed to surrender in a peace deal, Latimer refused to have interaction with the premise.

“You’re changing the argument,” he stated. “To get to the two-state solution, you need confidence that you have a dance partner that will work with you. Hamas is not a dance partner.”

However Hamas will not be in energy within the West Financial institution, the bigger of the 2 Palestinian territories. The Palestinian Authority, the nominal governing physique there, has largely cooperated with Israel’s safety equipment at nice political expense, with no development towards statehood to point out for its efforts. One would possibly say the Palestinian Authority doesn’t have a dance accomplice.

Pressed on whether or not he helps Biden’s determination to pause a cargo of two,000-pound bombs to Israel, Latimer repeatedly refused to say, insisting as an alternative that Home members mustn’t weigh in on particular person presidential selections.

“I support President Biden in his efforts,” Latimer stated.

Latimer’s defensiveness about his document has generally spilled over into racist fear-mongering about Bowman’s platform or base of help. In a June 10 debate hosted by the League of Ladies Voters, Latimer tied Bowman to Dearborn, Michigan, a hub of Arab People that has not been a big supply of donations to Bowman’s marketing campaign.

“Your constituency is Dearborn, Michigan. Your constituency is San Francisco, California,” he stated. “It’s not Harrison. It’s not Tuckahoe. It’s not Scarsdale.”

The Jewish Democrat who now helps Latimer hopes the county government shall be open to extra progressive views about Israel-Palestine coverage as soon as he’s in workplace.

“He could have put some light between himself and the AIPAC crowd, and he wouldn’t have lost five votes,” the Jewish Democrat stated.
