Now Rep. Frelinghuysen is endorsing his state party’s most recognized rebel: U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan.
“We all know Steve Lonegan’s energetic support for cutting taxes and reducing the size and reach of government is just what the U.S. Senate needs right now! “ said Rep. Frelinghuysen in a statement released by the Lonegan campaign on Thursday afternoon. “Republicans across the state should unite behind his candidacy today!”
Lonegan has already locked up the backing of the staunchly conservative Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) and the moderate Rep. Leonard Lance (NJ-07). Surprised? Then you haven’t been reading Save Jersey regularly enough. Shame on you! In case you missed it, I wrote a little bit about why the former Bogota Mayor is easily locking up establishment backing a couple of weeks ago.
