    Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) is down double digits in his primary race, according to a poll first obtained by the New York Post.

Latimer is backed by State Sen. Shelley Mayer as well as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Jewish Democratic Council of America, and Democratic Majority for Israel PAC. The latest poll of the race between the two found the incumbent...

    The State of Israel said that it was “unfortunate” that Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) had said that neither Hamas nor Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could be trusted to abide by a ceasefire, were one to take hold. Brown reportedly said Sunday that he opposed a ceasefire in the war in Gaza “only because I don’t trust either Hamas or frankly [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu would live up” to it. Brown made the controversial comments on video, as recorded by a TikTok influencer named Justin Jordan, who later claimed that Brown’s staff tried to convince him to delete the...

    Hereditary, recurring governor Jerry Brown, 85, wants California’s supreme court to remove from the November ballot a measure that would give the people final say on tax hikes. That invites a look at Brown’s past dealings with the state’s high court. In 1977, Brown’s choice for chief justice was Rose Bird, 40 years old and without judicial experience. In 10 years as California’s chief justice, Bird heard 64 capital cases and never voted to uphold a death sentence. For staunch death-penalty opponents, even those on the court, it defied belief to think that every case was unfounded. Consider, for example,...

    More than 30 pro-Palestinian Harvard students participated in a 12-hour hunger strike Friday in solidarity with 17 students at Brown University who refused to eat for eight days to pressure the Brown Corporation to divest from Israel. Nineteen students at Brown began the strike — which was originally indefinite — on Feb. 2, ahead of the Brown Corporation’s planned meetings beginning Feb. 8. The students intended to strike until the Brown Corporation considered a resolution to divest from “companies which profit from human rights abuses in Palestine,” but they ended the strike after Brown University president Christina H. Paxson denied...

    Three undercover Metropolitan Police Department officers joined the march of protesters up the northwest side of the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021—including one who climbed over a barricade and pushed others toward the Capitol, and another who walked behind Ashli Babbitt and predicted that “someone will get shot,” according to newly disclosed court documents. New court motions filed by Jan. 6 defendant William Pope of Topeka, Kansas, also show MPD bicycle officers stopping four armed men in plainclothes on Jan. 6. The men turned out to be federal agents. Video included with Pope’s filings also shows uniformed MPD officers saying,...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is leading hypothetical match-ups with his potential GOP rivals in Ohio’s Senate race as he tries for reelection in 2024, new polling shows. An Emerson College Polling/WJW-TV Fox 8 Cleveland survey of Ohio voters found Brown leading 42 percent support to 32 percent in a match-up with Republican businessman Bernie Moreno. Against Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose, Brown leads by 5 points, with 41 percent to LaRose’s 36 percent. Back in October, LaRose was up by 1 point.

    Newly-confirmed Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. is pressuring Israel to give up on the idea of eliminating the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, claiming a prolonged war risks turning more of the Palestinian population into terrorists. Gen. Brown, whose nomination stalled amid concerns about his “woke” record — including support for Black Lives Matter radicals and racial promotions in the military — expressed skepticism despite rapid Israeli gains on the ground against Hamas. The Times of Israel reported: The top US military official indicated Thursday that Israel will have a harder time eradicating Hamas...

    Former NFL player Sergio Brown has been arrested in connection with his mother’s death after being seen partying in Mexico in the wake of her death, according to a report. He was deported from the country on Tuesday and taken into custody near San Diego based on an arrest warrant issued in Illinois, an unidentified law enforcement source told CNN. Police in San Diego are now reportedly working to transfer the former pro-footballer from Southern California to the Chicago area, where his mother, Myrtle, was found dead in her home last month.

    SEATTLE — Vice President Kamala Harris created some unintentional irony on Tuesday, during her brief stop in Seattle. She appeared at the McKinstry warehouse in a gymnasium that was not air conditioned, and of all things, talked about the weather. Her fans, were without fans, and sweated through their suits and dresses to hear her talk about climate change. “Every day around the world, the impact of the climate crisis is stark, and it is vivid. We are seeing it in real time,” said the vice president, as part of a 13-minute speech that was centered on the Biden Administration’s...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Vice President Kamala Harris has shown a punchy side during a tour of nearly a dozen U.S. states in recent weeks, attacking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for backing "revisionist history" about slavery, telling Iowa healthcare workers to rebel against the state's new restrictive abortion laws and rallying Latinos in Chicago to fight "extremist" Republicans. The high-profile speeches are part of an expanded role for U.S. President Joe Biden's much-scrutinized governing partner ahead of the election, senior Democrats say. She'll engage in many more campaign-style events in months to come, designed to reacquaint Harris with loyal supporters, burnish...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) responded to a report that revealed he improperly claimed multiple tax credits by saying that “It’s a pretty common practice.” Brown, who is running for reelection in a red state, claimed two owner-occupancy tax credits — which potentially violates Buckeye State rules for such incentives, NBC News reported on Tuesday. Additionally, he and his wife have habitually paid their property taxes late. When asked about the report on Wednesday by Spectrum News’s Taylor Popielarz, the Buckeye State Democrat claimed, “It’s a pretty common practice, but once we learned about it, we fixed it.” Responding to paying...

    Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past extramarital relationship with U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris in his weekly column Saturday, saying he may have boosted the presidential hopeful's career. "Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago," Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle. "Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco." Brown, 84, pointed out that he also helped the careers of other prominent California Democrats, such as U.S. House...
