In House Races, Jewish Democrats Fare Better Than Republicans

While their 2010 match was so close the results weren’t determined for weeks, Altschuler conceded just after midnight Wednesday, with the vote count at 52 percent to 48 percent, according to Newsday.

Randy Altschuler, a Republican, failed in his second bid to unseat Rep. Tim Bishop in Suffolk's 1st District.

In a public school auditorium in Passaic, N.J., Monday night, a debate between Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and the man he wants to unseat in Congress, Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., turned fiery when the rabbi suggested his opponent wasn’t sufficiently pro-Israel.

“You don’t preach to me about my relationship with Israel!” shouted Pascrell, a seven-term Democrat who is battling to win the newly configured 9th District in northern New Jersey after beating a colleague, Steve Rothman, in the primary.
