Rep. Eric Can­tor (R) is still ex­pec­ted to at­tend a fun­draiser for state Sen. Lee Zeld­in (R), des­pite los­ing his reelec­tion bid on Tues­day. Zeld­in could re­place Can­tor as the only Jew­ish Re­pub­lic­an in Con­gress, if he wins the Re­pub­lic­an nom­in­a­tion over former SEC pro­sec­utor George Demos (R) and un­seats Rep. Tim Bish­op (D).

“We cer­tainly have Jew­ish sup­port and Lee has put out early on a very pro-Is­rael po­s­i­tion,” Zeld­in cam­paign man­ager Chap­in Fay said. “Eric Can­tor was the lone Jew­ish voice in the House, and that puts a little bit more im­port­ance on Lee.” (News­day)
