Far-left Rep. Bowman loses NY’s 16th district

by ian

In a shake-up in New York’s 16th Congressional District, far-left Democrat Jamaal Bowman lost to his centrist primary challenger yesterday. The loss is largely being blamed on Bowman’s anti-Israel stance following the October 7th terror attack, which alienated his district’s large Jewish population.

Bowman also made controversial statements about the attack, claiming that reports of rape and other atrocities by Hamas were Israeli propaganda. His opponent, George Latimer, ran on a moderate, pro-Israel message. He was leading Bowman by 10 points when the election was called last night.
