Space and Wirths Endorse Lonegan for Congress
District 24 Unifies to Take Back the Fifth Congressional District
Hackensack, NJ -- State Assemblymen Parker Space and Hal Wirths, (both R-24), today announced their support for conservative Republican Steve Lonegan in his campaign for congress in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District.
“Steve Lonegan is a principled and unapologetic conservative who knows what the people of Sussex County believe,” Space said. “No one would represent Northwest New Jersey more faithfully than Steve Lonegan.”
Wirths — a former New Jersey labor commissioner — said Lonegan’s focus on creating more high-paying jobs is especially important.
“Steve knows that America is strongest when Americans have opportunities for high-paying jobs,” Wirths said. "Steve knows that good jobs provide a personal dignity that government programs never could.”
Lonegan’s campaign is focused on creating jobs, lowering taxes, and enacting term limits.
Space said the Lonegan agenda is just what North Jersey wants and what America needs.
“Congressmen Gottheimer is a far left ideologue masquerading as a moderate,” Space said. “Whether on taxes, the second amendment, or the right to life, Josh is completely out of touch with the Fifth District — especially Sussex County.”
Lonegan supported both Space and Wirths in their race for the General Assembly earlier this year working in Sussex County week after week to ensure the duo were elected.
“Steve Lonegan is the strongest and best candidate we can nominate in 2018 to take back the Fifth Congressional District,” Wirths added. “He’s a solid, lifelong Republican who has been a tremendous standard bearer for our Party whenever we needed him.”
Lonegan has already been endorsed by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Bergen County State Senator Gerry Cardinale, Mrs. Ann Kievit, President of the Northwest New Jersey Taxpayers' Association, Rev. Greg Quinlan, President of the Center for Garden State Families, on behalf of New Jersey for a Conservative Majority, Alexander Roubian, President of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS), United States Senator Ted Cruz, Warren County State Senator Mike Doherty, and Sussex County Senator Steve Oroho.
