Is he or she an “MOT”? You may have wondered whether some local political candidates are Jewish. We’ve got some answers for you.

Mitzi Epstein and Matt Morales are candidates for the Arizona House of Representatives from different districts who both have strong connections to Judaism. Adam Stevens, also a candidate for the Arizona House from yet another district, is Jewish. Alex Meluskey, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate, is Christian. Mikel (pronounced “Michael”) Weisser, a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 4, is not Jewish.
