METUCHEN, NJ – Mayor Steve Lonegan, the Republican candidate for the United State Senate, praised House Republicans and veterans who removed the barriers which the Obama administration used to close several memorials on the Mall in Washington D.C., including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the National WWII Memorial.
“This despicable act of barricading the war memorials to veterans and the public is a shameful attempt by President Obama and his rubber stamps in Congress to ensure the government shutdown is painful and blame Republicans at the expense of the memory of those who gave their lives in their service to America,” Lonegan said.
“I call on Cory Booker to join me in denouncing the Obama administration’s shameful and disgraceful actions with regard to those who have served our country and those who have given their lives for our country,” Lonegan said.
“President Obama and his Congressional lackeys need to stop playing politics. They need to compromise with Republicans by supporting a one-year delay before implementing Obamacare,” added Lonegan.
“My opponent, Cory Booker, is running to be another Obama rubber-stamp who thinks that compromise means adopting his radical, left-wing beliefs,” Lonegan said. “New Jersey voters are going to stop him.
“If New Jersey voters choose to send me to the United States Senate, my election will send an instant signal to President Obama and everyone in Congress that the American people don’t want his health care plan, and that it is the President who needs to compromise.”
The election is in two weeks on Wednesday, October 16th.
Lonegan served as Bogota Mayor for twelve years, winning three times in a town that gave Barack Obama 67.5 percent of the vote in 2012. He served for seven years as state director of Americans for Prosperity New Jersey, where he helped defeat liberal attempts to expand big government. Steve Lonegan is the conservative Republican candidate in the New Jersey special election for the United States Senate. Lonegan stands firmly on the bedrock conservative values of small government, fiscal responsibility and individual liberty.
