Lonegan nabs N.J. pro-life endorsement

HACKENSACK, N.J. — NJ-05 Republican candidate Steve Lonegan has been endorsed by the New Jersey Right to Life (NJRTL) PAC.

“Steve Lonegan was instrumental in our successful effort to defeat Jon Corzine’s embryonic stem cell taxpayer rip-off,” said Marie Tasy, New Jersey Right to Life PAC executive director.  “Steve’s hard work not only helped defeat this grisly practice in New Jersey, but has virtually stopped taxpayer funding of stem cell research across America.”

New Jersey’s sprawling Fifth Congressional District includes portions of Bergen, Passaic, Sussex and Warren Counties.

Lonegan, a former mayor and repeat statewide candidate, is battling attorney and former Cresskill Councilman John McCann for the GOP nomination.
