Below is a statement from NYS Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis who filed for the NY-11 seat currently held by Rep. Max Rose.

Yesterday morning, Congressman Max Rose condemned Congresswoman Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks but by the end of the day he was back at putting his party loyalties ahead of doing what’s right, calling the ultra liberal Omar his “friend” with whom he “shares values” after she once again made vile anti-Semitic statements and attacked our NATION’S TRUE FRIEND AND ALLY Israel. Equally as disturbing, she will be fundraising next week with an individual who promoted social media posts calling the Jewish people “stinking” and for them to be “destroyed.” Can’t wait to hear Doublespeak Max trying to justify his friend’s action.
