(Courtesy of NORPAC) On Sunday evening, NORPAC hosted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) at the home of Drs. Esther and Mort Fridman in Teaneck.

Mitch McConnell is the longest-serving Senate Republican leader. Before his election to the Senate, he served as judge-executive of Jefferson County, Kentucky, from 1978 until he commenced his Senate term in 1985.

In the first months of 2019, McConnell pushed legislation authorizing more than $3 billion in security assistance to Israel through the bipartisan bill S.1.

In May, McConnell and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy released a joint statement about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, stating that “BDS’s real aim is to exclude, isolate and delegitimize Israel.”

Senator Mitch McConnell will be up for re-election in November 2020.
