Mckayla Wilkes is trying to unseat one of the country’s most hawkish Democrats

Mckayla Wilkes is mounting a primary challenge against House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer in Maryland’s 5th district. Hoyer is one of the most pro-Israel Democrats in the House and has represented the district for almost 40 years. Wilkes is running an unapologetically progressive campaign and Palestinian rights are important part of her platform. She was recently endorsed by Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). “Hoyer represents the corporate wing of the Democratic party that is holding us back from real change,” said Jewish Voice for Peace Action Government Affairs Manager Beth Miller at the time, “Wilkes is part of the rising progressive left and would truly represent her district – and we’re proud to endorse her.”
