Hillary Clinton Endorses Latimer Sparking Controversy Among Progressives in NY Primary Race

Hillary Clinton, a prominent Democratic figure, sparked controversy among progressives when she announced her endorsement of George Latimer for the seat held by Rep. Jamaal Bowman in New York. In her endorsement, Clinton emphasized the need for strong and principled Democrats in Congress, particularly with the looming presence of former President Trump on the ballot. She highlighted Latimer’s commitment to protecting abortion rights, standing up to the NRA, and advocating for President Biden’s agenda as key reasons for her endorsement.

Progressives quickly voiced their disapproval of Clinton’s endorsement, suggesting that it served as a clear indication for them to support Bowman instead. They criticized Latimer for his stance on the Israel-Hamas conflict and his alignment with the pro-Israel AIPAC, contrasting it with Bowman’s position on the issue and his advocacy for social spending. This primary race is anticipated to reflect Democratic sentiments on the Israel-Hamas conflict as well as other important issues.

Latimer, who has garnered substantial support from AIPAC, welcomed Clinton’s endorsement and expressed his gratitude for her backing. With early voting underway, the primary race between Bowman and Latimer is poised to be a significant contest that will shape the future of the Democratic representation in New York.
