Oroho Endorses Lonegan for Congress
Declares Sussex County Lonegan Country
Hackensack, NJ -- State Senator Steve Oroho, (R-Sussex), today announced his support for conservative Republican Steve Lonegan in his campaign for congress in New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District.
"Steve Lonegan will go to Congress to cut taxes and create jobs," Oroho said. "We need his determination and focus now, more than ever. That's why I'm supporting Steve Lonegan for Congress in Congressional District 5, a district Steve has won in the past, albeit for different offices."
Oroho was referring to the 2009 Republican Primary and the 2013 Special Election for U.S. Senate when Lonegan crushed Cory Booker by 20 percent.
"Sussex County has strongly supported Steve Lonegan in the past and will do so again in 2018," Oroho said. "New Jersey needs Steve's leadership in Washington, DC and we're going to do our part to help him get there."
"People who know Steve Lonegan know that he's a person of great integrity and determination. Steve is a gentleman who is always there to help his party, our region, and the country. Steve knows what it is to overcome obstacles. He believes that the safety net should be a trampoline, not a hammock," Oroho added.
Lonegan expressed his admiration for Senator Oroho's leadership in the state legislature.
"Senator Oroho has been a strong and courageous leader for Sussex County in the state legislature," Lonegan said. "He consistently fights for the interests of Sussex County -- smaller government, the right to life, and the right to bear arms -- all are important issues in Northwest New Jersey and I share Senator Oroho's commitment to them."
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, and Warren County State Senator Mike Doherty.
