Nassau County District Attorney and Democratic Congressional candidate Kathleen Rice returned from a three-day trip to Israel last week where she met with leading economic and national security experts, local business owners, and community leaders and families with strong ties to Nassau County’s Jewish community.

“I think Israel is our most critical ally,” said Rice in an interview with Hofstra’s Morning Wake Up Call. “It’s important for us as Americans to support them.”

Here’s her full interview with HMWC’s Brianna Borresen and Neil A. Carousso.
