Pennacchio Endorses Lonegan for Congress
Jersey Joe Pledges to Help Lonegan Carry West Milford
Hackensack, NJ -- State Senator Joe Pennacchio, (R-Morris), today announced his support for conservative Republican Steve Lonegan in his campaign for congress in New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District.
"Steve Lonegan has been a tireless fighter for our conservative principles for years," Sen. Pennacchio said. "New Jersey conservatives have been grateful for his leadership and West Milford voters have richly rewarded him."
Pennacchio, who represents one of the two Passaic County towns in the Fifth Congressional District, was referring to Lonegan's dominating performance in the 2013 U.S. Senate election when he defeated Cory Booker with 62% of the vote in West Milford.
"West Milford knows and trusts Steve Lonegan to fight for our conservative values," Pennacchio said. "Better jobs, lower taxes, term limits for Congress, the right to life, religious liberty, and a firm commitment to the Second Amendment -- these are all hallmarks of Steve's unwavering vision."
Lonegan thanked Pennacchio for his support and pledged to fight for West Milford and for all of North Jersey.
"Senator Pennacchio is among the most dependable senators New Jersey conservatives can look to," Lonegan said. "He is a leader in pushing for lower taxes, less government, and especially the right to life. I'm proud to have earned his endorsement and will work closely with him to make North Jersey a better place to live, work, and raise a family."
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, Sussex County Senator Steve Oroho, Assemblyman Parker Space, Assemblyman-elect Hal Wirths, and Sussex County State Committeewoman Jill Space.
Common-sense conservative Republican Steve Lonegan is a loving father, grandfather, and a successful business owner who will make jobs, term limits, and lower taxes his primary focus as our next congressman. Steve is hardworking, outspoken, and dedicated to you and your family. Steve has a lifelong record of selfless public service. Steve has taken on the tough fights that few others will. Steve and his wife Lorraine (Rossi), who have been longtime parishioners of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Bogota, live in Hackensack and have two adult daughters, Katharine and Brooke.
