Former presidential candidate and editor-in-chief of Forbes Magazine,Steve Forbes, announced his endorsement today of Steve Lonegan in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District.
“I know Steve Lonegan to be a tireless worker and fierce advocate for taxpayers,” stated Mr. Forbes. “As a staunch believer in economic freedom, Steve understands that prosperity comes when you unleash the free market, get government out of the way, and allow the American people the opportunity to pursue their dreams. Steve has what it takes to stand up to the entrenched interests in Washington, D.C., and provide constituents in New Jersey's Fifth District the kind of bold, conservative leadership they deserve. I am proud today to endorse his candidacy.”
“I could not be more honored to receive the endorsement of former presidential candidate Steve Forbes,” said Lonegan. “Steve is one of the greatest voices in defense of capitalism and free markets in the country. As one of the greatest economic thinkers and experts in monetary policy, his influence on me is unrivaled. On behalf of myself and my entire campaign team, I cannot thank Steve enough for his endorsement.”
With his endorsement today, Mr. Forbes joins several other prominent conservative Republican leaders in support of Mayor Lonegan’s candidacy, including Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Mr. Lonegan has also garnered the support of numerous Republican leaders throughout the state in his bid to secure the party's nomination and unseat first-term Democrat Josh Gottheimer this fall.
