A supporter of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) against the State of Israel, Cori Bush, has been declared the winner of the Democratic primary race in Missouri’s First Congressional District.
Bush defeated Lacy Clay, a 20-year incumbent who supported Israel in a district with a significant Jewish population. Moreover, it was Clay who in the final days of the campaign, disseminated a booklet exposing Bush’s ties to Palestinian Activist Linda Sarsour and her support for BDS, Jewish Insider first reported.
The mailer featured a number of charges against the progressive candidate including her support for an end to military aid to Israel, according to the report. It also alleged that she “failed to condemn antisemitic comments by her fellow staffers while working as a national surrogate for Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.”
Jewish Insider reported that Bush had openly stated her support for BDS on her campaign site, which was since removed. “I stand by the right of Palestinians to live as a free people just as the people of Israel and we as U.S. citizens are allowed to do,” the page read. “We also stand by their right to call for a boycott on goods and services that the government that is currently oppressing them profits from, in order to draw attention to their plight.”
Bush has been backed by Justice Democrats, the Democratic Socialists of America and the Sunrise Movement. If she succeeds in her Congressional bid, Bush will likely join a few freshman members of Congress who support BDS, including Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District this week.
“Congrats Missouri, you just allowed a Jew hating, Linda Sarsour loving, new member of the squad to win your state’s Democratic primary,” StopAntisemitism.org wrote on Twitter Wednesday, following the release of Tuesday’s primary results.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
