Norpac had two separate meetings last week; one featured Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and the other showcased House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA.)
Guests met Senator McCain at a fundraising dinner at the Englewood home of Raphael and Linda Benaroya. Mr. McCain was joined by General Charles G. Boyd, USAF (Ret.), a decorated combat pilot who fought in Vietnam and was the only prisoner of war from that conflict to reach the four-star rank. Mr. McCain, a former presidential candidate, is the chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
In Teaneck, Drs. Mort and Esther Fridman hosted Congressman Kevin McCarthy, who was elected House Majority Leader in 2014. Among the first bills Mr. McCarthy shepherded through the House in his new position was emergency funding for the Iron Dome anti-missile defensive system during Operation Protective Edge. Both Mr. McCain and Mr. McCarthy are running for re-election this year.
