Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri is facing a primary challenge over her stance on Israel.

A recent poll shows her trailing prosecutor Wesley Bell by double digits in the Democratic primary for Missouri’s 1st district.

Bush’s criticism of Israel and calls to condition US aid have upset many Democrats.

A pro-Israel group CEO said Bush is vulnerable due to her resistance to supporting Israel in its war with Hamas.

Bell believes his more pragmatic approach resonates with voters seeking steady leadership.

“This poll validates what we’ve known for a while. We have the momentum in this race because voters in the first district want a representative who is a bridge builder,” Bell said.

“Voters want someone who offers steady, grounded leadership in these very difficult times.”

He leads Bush in fundraising and polling.

Bush advocates for a ceasefire and conditional aid to Israel, while Bell has the endorsement of a pro-Israel PAC that contrasts his position with Bush representing an “extremist, anti-Israel fringe.”

“We proudly endorse Wesley Bell, who is a strong advocate for the U.S.-Israel relationship,” American Israeli Political Action Committee spokesperson Marshall Wittmann said, “in clear contrast to his opponent, who represents the extremist, anti-Israel fringe.”

Bush’s challenger appears to be gaining strength by presenting a more centrist alternative on foreign policy issues.
