Rep. Berman bill would give Israel more missile defense support

Berman, ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has pushed a number of pro-Israeli measures, including an extension of an Israeli loan guarantee program and further sanctions against Iran.

The bill is co-sponsored by House Foreign Affairs Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.).

Berman and Sherman, both Jews, were redistricted into the same district in Southern California. One pro-Israeli political action committee, the Washington PAC, donated the maximum to both campaigns this election cycle.

“This is the only time in our 30-year history that we are contributing to both sides of a race, since both candidates deserve it,” the PAC wrote in the invitation for Berman’s fundraiser.
