Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) has emerged since Oct. 7 as one of Israel’s strongest supporters in the U.S. Congress.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported on Friday that Nick Gavio, the senator’s deputy communications director, is leaving at the end of March for a job at the Working Families Party, a minor political party.

Earlier in March, Joe Calvello departed as Fetterman’s communications director for a job in the office of Brandon Johnson, Chicago’s mayor; and Emma Mustion left her role as a press and digital aide to work on Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey’s re-election campaign.

“Fetterman has alienated some of his supporters on the left with his defense of Israel’s war against Hamas and his criticism of ceasefire activists,” per the Inquirer.

“We don’t deserve John Fetterman. But thank God we have him,” wrote Abe Greenwald, executive editor of Commentary, on Friday.

On Saturday, Fetterman posted on social media in response to the headline “Accusations of hypocrisy follow U.S. arms transfer to Israel” in The Washington Post.

“No conditions. Zero hypocrisy. Stand with Israel,” Fetterman wrote.

“The only comms staffer John Fetterman needs is John Fetterman,” wrote Matthew Foldi, a political reporter at the Spectator.

Everyone -please contract Senator Fetterman and thank him. As a Democrat, his support for Israel during the conflict is extremely courageous, and he deserves to hear our appreciation

I’m a life-long Republican but sent Fetterman a donation and thanked him for his support of Israel. It is important for supporters of Israel to contact him since our enemies certainly will.

While he was running for office I thought he was a joke
But now he’s shown he’s got real convictions and doesn’t care what others think.

If that’s crazy. Then give usore
