Summary of CD-6 Candidates Answer F2B's questionnaire about Israel/Palestine Issues

Recently Freedom2Boycott in Maryland sent a six-question questionnaire to all the candidates running for election in Maryland's 6th Congressional District. The questions had to do with Israel/Palestine-related issues that they are likely to encounter if they are elected to Congress.

Out of all the candidates, only two responded in writing: Dr. Nadia Hashimi (D) and Mr. Kevin Caldwell (L). We thank them for their responses.
