Express-Times Endorses Lance

By Staff | The Save Jersey Blog

lance kovachThe Express-Times, a newspaper covering the Leigh Valley which encompasses Warren County, New Jersey, is endorsing Leonard Lance for re-election.

“Lance has a record of getting things done…,” wrote the editorial board. “His willingness to break with party leadership is evident, and he hasn’t betrayed the core issues that define his record — jousting with deficit-builders, promoting government reform, restricting government regulation while keeping an eye on environmental needs, and helping small business.”

His position on illegal immigration formed a point of contrast for the board and seemed to play a significant role in its decision.

“Lance wants to secure the border first; he opposes citizenship for those who entered the country illegally,” the editorial board continued. :[Democrat] Kovach supports a path to citizenship, would vote for the DREAM Act and expresses sympathy for central American children coming through the southern U.S. border.”
