Rubio Opposes Lew Nomination

Oct 25, 2023 | Press Releases

President Joe Biden nominated Jack Lew to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Israel in September, months after the previous ambassador announced his resignation. The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations approved Lew’s nomination by a 12-9 vote. The nomination now heads to the full Senate for confirmation.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement after voting against Lew’s nomination. 

  • “America’s next ambassador to Israel must stand unequivocally with our strongest Middle East ally in the wake of barbaric attacks by Iranian-backed Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists. The United States must be represented by a person of utmost integrity, sound judgment, and a track record of excellence. 
  • “After thorough review of Mr. Lew’s qualifications record, including his history of misleading and lying to Members of Congress, I will not support his nomination for this critical post.” – Senator Rubio
