J Street took back back in a competitive midterm


The political action committee for the left-wing Israeli group J Street struck almost 43 percent on Tuesday night, as most of their approved candidates in contest lists stopped losing their bid.

According to an analysis of the Rational 360 political group, J Street PAC, while winning the most competitive races in both the House and the Senate, 32 out of 56 (almost 60 percent) lost competitive campaigns as approved.

With House, J Street PAC lost 29 of the 51 competitive house races (almost 57 percent).

On the late side, it only won two of the five competitive races it approved: Nevada Jacky Rosen, as unseated Republican Dean Heller, and Montana Jon Tester, who defeated an incumbent challenge from Republican Matt Rosendale. Texas Rep. Beto O & # 39; Rourke, Missouri Claire McCaskill and North Dakota Heidi Heitkamp lost each race.

J Street PAC raised $ 5 million for 163 congress candidates, according to the group.
