Heavy Campaigning For Booker, Lonegan Day Before N.J. Senate Vote

TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The New Jersey U.S. Senate race was in a fight to the finish Tuesday, a day before voters were set to head to the polls in a special election.

As CBS 2’s Christine Sloan reported, Democrat Cory Booker is hitting the Democrat-favoring communities of Belleville, New Brunswick, Hoboken and Newark, where he is mayor.

Republican Steve Lonegan is campaigning Tuesday in Basking Ridge, Flemington, Belvidere, Morristown and Middletown — all places where Republicans usually get the most votes. He’s also stopping in Jersey City.

Lonegan also received the endorsement of former Jersey City Acting Mayor Joe Rokawski. And Lonegan attacked Booker for his performance as Newark mayor.

“Two people were shot to death on the streets of Newark last night. Unemployment in Newark has gone from 8 to 14 percent,” Lonegan said. “Mr. Booker has failed Newark. That’s extreme. See, he’s an extreme failure.”

Booker fired back, calling Lonegan extreme as he met with senior citizens in Newark.

“He is the leader of the tea party in New Jersey, period,” Booker said. “Do we want to send the tea party to Washington that is continuing to shut down our government?”

The voters in New Jersey will most probably choose Obamabot clone, criminal, thug, Cory Booker as their new US Senator!!! Booker will follow in the tradition of the long line of Democrat Governors & US Senators that are nothing more then street trash thugs or criminals at the end of the day....Ho-Hum!!!

On the other hand, New Jersey voters have a once in a lifetime opportunity to defy history and elect Steve Lonegan as their new US Senator!!! New Jersey.....the “crossroads”, the pivot point, the lynch pin, of the American Revolution. The hollowed ground where the key battles of Monmouth and Trenton were fought, resulting in the great, needed victory over the British & Hessians at Trenton, NJ!!!

History and the destiny of future America is knocking on the door, New Jersey!!! Will you come forward and play the role of savior of our great nation, as General George Washington did....or will you just be another American lost at sea as your country is being destroyed right before your very eye!!!!

More importantly......the negative impact of the Obama/Booker mantra will be most harmful to your beloeved children and grandchildren....witness what both Obama and Booker have done to minority Americans!!! Steve Lonegan is for all Americans.....that is why so many urban folks have endorsed him.

Lonegan is a Jersey boy, born & raised & successful in New Jersey through his life in his beloved home state!!! Folks....in your hearts.....most of you know.....that Obama must go for these United States of America to become a world leader and the place where the entire world wants to live, grow, prosper and be happy!!!

That is why, it is so important for you to get out and vote, tomorrow, Wednesday, October 16, 2013 for Steve Lonegan to be your next US Senator, New Jersey!!! All those irish, Italians, Reagan Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, Minorities, Young Folks, even rank & file Democrats and Industrial Union Workers need to support Steve Lonegan...big time!!! He is one of you!!! Cory Booker is not one of you...and never will be!!!

VOTE FOR STEVE LONEGAN FOR US SENATE, Wednesday, October 16, 2013!!!
