STATE — Former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin endorsed Republican Steve Lonegan in his bid for the United States Senate on Wednesday.
“On October 16, New Jersey has the choice of two mayors to send to the U.S. Senate. Only one of these mayor’s has embraced and governed by the values of New Jersey’s state motto – ‘Liberty and Prosperity,’ Palin said in a statement. “Steve Lonegan will fight to preserve our Liberty against government regulations like Obamacare that seek to limit our Prosperity. Let’s come together, turn out, work hard, and elect conservative Steve Lonegan to the U.S. Senate on Oct. 16!”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of such a principled leader,” Lonegan said in a statement. “Governor Palin has been more than a voice for traditional American values, she has been a leader in helping conservatives stand up for their ideas and win elections. Her endorsement is further proof that the Republican Party will always come together to stand for principled conservatives.”
Lonegan faces Newark Mayor Cory Booker in the Oct. 16 special election to fill an opening left in the U.S. Senate by the death of Frank Lautenberg earlier this year.
