    expressing their concerns about her or confirming that there are people considering backing a primary opponent.

    "Ron Halber, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington"

    "Rabbi Stuart Weinblatt of the B’nai Tzedek synagogue in Potomac, Md."

    "Rabbi Ari Sunshine of the B’nai Shalom synagogue of Olney, Md."

    "Larry Fishbein, the president and publisher of the Washington Jewish Week newspaper"

    On the other hand, there are numerous sources cited by name, including one from J Street, who are supporting her.

    The article even mentions one person who is supposedly trying to drum up support for a run:

    There are already signs that the Jewish community is preparing to back a primary challenge to Edwards. Last month, Maryland Del. Herman Taylor attended the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference in Washington — in no small part, he said, to gauge support for a run against Edwards.

    All that being said, I don't know why they brought McKinney and Hilliard into it, and I still think the author of the article is trying to intimidate or stir up trouble where there probably isn't any real trouble.
