‘Undecided’ Sen. Cardin Predicts Congress Will Back Obama on Iran Deal

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Maryland Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin said Tuesday he remains undecided on how to vote on the nuclear deal but that he is sure President Barack Obama will win the needed support in the Senate to prevent a veto-proof majority against the agreement.

Speaking to students at Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins University, Sen. Cardin did not name which Democratic senators will fall in line but said thematic number of 34 will be reached by the end of the week.

The Associated Press said that Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware is scheduled to talk about the deal later today and probably will support President Obama.

Cardin is facing intense pressure from Jewish voters in Maryland to vote against the agreement. He is a member of Baltimore’s largest modern Orthodox synagogue that generally is very supportive of Israel.

Delaware Top Destination for Israeli Firms Incorporating in US

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Governor Jack Markell, the only sitting Jewish Governor in the United States, and a delegation of Delaware entrepreneurs and business leaders are visiting Israel on a week-long economic development mission.

The trip highlights Delaware’s strong economic ties to Israel and aims to further raise Israeli business interest in the State.

The delegation will be meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres, U.S. Ambassador Daniel Shapiro, financial and stock exchange officials as well as with DuPont Israel, Delaware’s largest commercial presence in Israel.

Thousands of Israeli-based businesses are incorporated in Delaware, which Gov. Markell said “is an ideal choice for Israeli companies seeking to enter the U.S market.”

“We are one of the smallest U.S. states, but have succeeded in building an effective system that minimizes red tape for businesses, eliminates archaic regulatory hurdles, and provides business leaders with easy access to senior state officials,” he explained.
