RJC Endorses Mazi Pilip in NY-3 Special Election

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition announced its endorsement of Mazi Pilip for the February 2024 special election in New York’s Third Congressional District. The special election is to fill the seat vacated by the expulsion of disgraced George Santos from the US House of Representatives. 

RJC CEO Matt Brooks said: 

Mazi Pilip has a truly inspiring story: an Ethiopian Jew from a small village whose family was rescued to Israel in 1991, she was educated in Israel and served as a paratrooper in the Israeli Defense Forces. Now a proud American, Pilip won election to New York's Nassau County Legislature for the 10th district, where she has served admirably and inspires Long Island residents with her dedicated public service. Just last month, she won reelection by a 20-point margin in the Democrat-majority district. 

Pilip is a remarkable candidate whose strength of character and firm principles are clear to anyone who looks at her life story and her work. This stands in stark contrast to her Democrat opponent, career politician Tom Suozzi, who focuses on himself rather than the people of NY-3. 

Winning this battleground seat is critical to maintaining the GOP majority in the House of Representatives, and as antisemitism continues to spike across the country, electing candidates like Mazi Pilip is more important than ever. The RJC is proud to endorse Mazi Pilip in the special Congressional election and looks forward to working with her long into the future.
