Jamaal Bowman has little history of involvement in our community and is not a real Democrat.  He wasn’t even a Democrat when Donald Trump was elected president and he didn’t even vote in the most important Democratic primaries to elect Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominees for president. In 2008,  Bowman wasn’t a Democrat and was a member of a party that ran John McCain for President and Sarah Palin for Vice President against Barack Obama and Joe Biden.  In fact, Bowman missed more than 20 opportunities to vote for a Democrat. Bowman did not become a Democrat until he decided to run for Congress in 2018.  At this moment in our history, we need a Democratic champion who can get things done on important Democratic priorities, not someone who wasn’t even a Democrat when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were making their historic runs for the presidency.
