New York - Congressman Jerrold Nadler walked away with a landslide victory in today’s Democratic primary, beating challenger Oliver Rosenberg by a very wide margin.

NY1 is reporting that with 95 percent of the precincts in the 10th District already counted, Nadler is ahead by a margin of close to 89 percentage points.

The vote is a moment of redemption for Nadler who faced a maelstrom of criticism for his support of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran last year, which prompted many in the Jewish community to call for his ouster.

“I am obviously very gratified and humbled,” Nadler told VIN News.  “It shows that even if you take a controversial stance on one issue, people respect a long career of service.”

Nadler, a long time supporter of Iron Dome funding, co-authored the Religious Lands Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, which has been instrumental in allowing Jewish communities to construct eruvim and build religious institutions.

“Just about every frum community that brings a case usually wins because of RLUIPA which states that the government can’t impose a burden unless it shows a compelling state interest and such a thing can rarely be proven,” said Nadler. 

Challenger Oliver Rosenberg, a Yeshiva University graduate with no political experience, was considered by many to be a long shot in the race to unseat the 69 year old Nadler who has run unopposed in the Democratic primary for the last 20 years.

Nadler will be facing off in November against Philip J. Rosenthal, a successful attorney, entrepreneur and physicist who will be running on both the Republican and Conservative lines.

As reported by the Ultra Orthodox site "Natruna" that Mr. Nadler has the full right to Support the US president and should not be harassed by the Zionist org. For the Iran deal.

Funny, I never heard this guy talking about his growing up frum before this particular primary. Must have been very worried the Yidden would vote him out after his support of Obamas Iranian deal. Fear not Nadler, the foolish Yidden vote for you no matter how much you go against their communities wishes. As long as you bring home the bacon. HYPOCRITES!

Kol hakovod to Cong. Nadler. He is truly a friend of EY and those who opposed him have been shown to be narrow minded zealots who fail to understand the real benefits of limiting the Iranian nuclear program.

By supporting Lander, Hikind set a precedent that a candidate's personal life, specifically them being "verry happy and gay" is irrelevant. Rosenberg went a step further and actively supported a gay congregation (״טבל ושרץ בידו")

So we are giving another chance to an obese, Obama puppet, terror and Iran supporting hypocrite. Such a shame. He needs to be retired. He has been a rebellious Jew in Congress, and has done more to interrupt American support for Israel than many other politicians. This embarrassment needs to be voted out.
