Republican Liberty Caucus Endorses Steve Lonegan for Congress
The RLC endorsement comes on the heels of Mayor Lonegan having been named just one of 14 congressional candidates added to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Young Guns “Contenders” list last week.
"The RLC is excited to endorse Steve Lonegan for New Jersey Congressional District 5," said Matt Nye, Republican Liberty Caucus National Chairman. "He is a fiscal conservative who has shown that he can get things done."
"Steve's time as Mayor of Bogota, New Jersey and his continued fight for the taxpayers of New Jersey has shown his dedication to fighting for fiscal restraint and limited government," Nye said."Candidates that follow through on their promises once elected are rare, and should be rewarded when they do so."
Mayor Lonegan provided the following statement:
“The Republican Liberty Caucus is an incredible organization and great advocate for all of the ideas and principles which are at the heart of my campaign: individual liberty, economic freedom and limited government. I am truly humbled and honored to receive their endorsement.”
“As a member of Congress, I will do everything in my power to live up to these principles and ensure that the people of the Fifth District, and all Americans, are afforded the freedom the founders envisioned for us to pursue our dreams and enjoy prosperity.”
