None of the declared candidates for the Democratic Party nomination for president will attend the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) this year.
Presidential candidates tend to address the conference in election years, which 2019 is not. However, the AIPAC conference is usually an important platform for both parties to showcase their support for Israel.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed Thursday that he will be speaking at AIPAC. He is the first — and, so far, the only — Democratic presidential hopeful to confirm his attendance.
But de Blasio has not actually declared that he is running yet. Other Democratic candidates are being encouraged to boycott the conference — and some have already declared they will not attend. On Wednesday, the left-wing group MoveOn.org called on candidates to boycott the conference, Politico reported.
