NPC Newsmaker Program: Democratic Congressional Campaign Chair Rep. Steve Israel To Discuss State of Play in 2014 Congressional Races
WASHINGTON, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) will make the Democrats' case for the 2014 midterm elections, discussing key campaign issues, messages and priorities, at a National Press Club Newsmakers news conference on Wednesday, April 2 at 10 a.m. in the Club's Zenger Room.
Democrats need to win 17 additional seats to regain the House. Israel will address how the Party will combat midterm dropoff and what he says is "the core issue of the cycle: Who is on the voters' side?"
Israel represents New York's 3rd Congressional District, including the North Shore Long Island communities of Huntington, Oyster Bay, North Hempstead, as well as a portion of northeastern Queens. He was first elected to Congress in 2000. Former President Bill Clinton called Congressman Israel "one of the most thoughtful people in the House of Representatives."
Like all NPC Newsmaker events, this news conference is open to credentialed media and press club members. No registration is required.
The NPC is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St. NW, Washington DC 20045.
