Rep. Claudia Tenney

We are proud to endorse Congresswoman Claudia Tenney – a dedicated advocate for her constituents in Upstate New York who has been a standout ally of Israel in its fight against Hamas and a strong voice against antisemitism.

Within days of the horrific October 7, 2023 attack on Israel, Congresswoman Tenney introduced a bill to replenish the critical Iron Dome missile defense program. Soon after, she introduced a bill to cut off funding for UNRWA and other international organizations that partner with groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. There aren’t many Jewish voters in the 24th district; Congresswoman Tenney’s leadership is based on her strong convictions, not politics.

Congresswoman Tenney is being challenged by Mario Fratto. Fratto’s campaign platform calls for ending U.S. aid to Israel as it fights for survival against Hamas and Iran’s other terrorist proxies. He has attacked Congresswoman Tenney’s support for anti-terrorism legislation and for supporting a Republican Speaker of the House. He touts the endorsement of one of the most notorious antisemite-embracing Members of Congress.

RJC urges the voters of NY-24 to support Congresswoman Claudia Tenney and reject the extremism of Mario Fratto in New York’s GOP primary on June 25.
