WILLINGBORO Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick joined the fray this morning in New Jersey's U.S. Senate race, stumping on behalf of Newark Mayor Cory Booker and blasting his Republican opponent Steve Lonegan and other tea party conservatives seeking to defund Obamacare as "a band of radicals who want to drag the country and its economy over a cliff."
"It's amazing that people would publicly advocate to harm American citizens as a policy position," Patrick said at a senior center in Willingboro. "The Affordable Care Act, just like our health reform in Massachusetts, on which it is based, has done a lot of good for an awful lot of people, giving them health-care security and a wide range of choice and also helped us control health-care costs. It'll do the same for the nation."
A Democrat in his second term as governor and former assistant U.S. attorney general for civil rights, Patrick said Massachusetts has come back roaring from the 2009 recession by investing funds in public schools, workforce development programs and industries like life sciences, biotech, alternative energy and digital technology. Just cutting budgets is not the answer, he said.
"We've regained all of the jobs we lost during the Great Recession," he told the group of nearly 50 seniors. "None of this is by accident. It's because we keep saying to each other and to the general public, 'We have a stake in each other and we need to invest with that in mind.' That is exactly the way Mayor Booker has governed in Newark."

That’s exactly why we must get Steve Lonegan in the Senate.
Vote Booker — make America like Newark. (Paid for by the Committee to Keep Booker Mayor.)
Steve Lonegan is closing in on Flim/Flam, Scam Shyster, Obama thug & Clone, Cory “The Failed Newark Mayor of Murder City)!!! The latest polls show Lonegan catching up to Booker very quickly.
New Jersey folks this is a turnout election being held on a Wednesday in October. Steve has a real solid chance for pulling off the biggest upset of the year!!! Vote for Steve Lonegan, for the good of your kids, for the good of New Jersey, for the good of our great country, and....for the good of Freedom Liberty and Opportunity for the all people in NJ!!!!
No idea who Lonegan is, but it is a pretty safe bet that if a turd like Deval Patrick is against him, I’m gonna be for him.
Ah. Booker is black and Lonegan is white.
That does make a difference to Deval, I am sure.
The only poll I’ve seen has Lonegan behind by 12 points. Have you seen any other numbers?
You’re right, turnout is key to this.
Lonegan is one of the good guys.
No....that is the reliable poll I was referring to. Lowlifem Obamabot Cory Booker, according to the mainstream Obamabot media was leading by 25-35 points!!! Lonegan is closing the gap very fast and does have a great shot at pulling off an upset...if only New Jersey Conseervatives will turn out in massive force in the “Special” election which I believe is Wednesday, October 16, 2013!!!
