NRCC Statement on Liz Gereghty Announcement

November 29, 2023

If you are covering Liz Gereghty’s announcement, please consider the following statement from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC):

“Now that Democrats are forced to accept Mondaire Jones as their nominee, they will also be forced to defend his pathetic record of wanting to defund the police, abandoning Israel and leaving his former constituents in a lurch. We don’t envy them.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Savannah Viar 


  • Mondiare Jones tweeted support for the defund the police movement when he stated, “We must reimagine our criminal legal system.”
  • In 2021, Mondaire joined fellow Democrats in voting against a motion-to-recommit to provide $73 million toward’s Israel’s Iron Dome Defense Program. This happened mere days after House Democrats rejected efforts to sanction Hamas.
  • Mondaire Jones closed up his district shop early after losing out in a Democrat primary, leaving constituents to fend for themselves.
