Charlotte, NC – US Senate Candidate and former Gov. Pat McCrory (R-NC) released the following statement today regarding the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas:
“For nearly two weeks, the world has watched as violence has erupted between Israel and Hamas. There can be no equivocation by America: we must stand with Israel. As one of our closest allies, Israel has a right to defend itself against Hamas and their acts of aggression.
It’s time for my Democrat opponents to let the voters know if they stand with Israel or with Hamas. While Chuck Schumer may try to hide, I won’t let Cheri Beasley, Erica Smith and Jeff Jackson do the same. We are running for the United States Senate, these issues are now before that body, and voters deserve to know our position on this critical conflict.
My answer is simple: I stand with Israel. And I call on my Democrat opponents to tell North Carolinians – finally – which side they’re on.”
