Hackensack, NJ -- U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today announced his endorsement of former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, the conservative Republican who is running for Congress in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District.
“Steve Lonegan is a tireless advocate for our founding principles who has proven his willingness to boldly take his message directly to the people of New Jersey, and I am proud to endorse him to become the next Member of Congress from the Fifth District,” Cruz said. “I have known Steve for many years, and look forward to working with him to grow jobs, expand freedom, and ensure the security of the American people.”
Lonegan served as New Jersey state chairman and as a national spokesman for Senator Cruz’s presidential campaign in 2016 before endorsing President Trump and working to help defeat Hillary Clinton.
“Senator Cruz is a fearless advocate for the American people and for our constitutional Republic,” Lonegan said. “His support means so much to me, my wife Lorraine, and to our entire campaign team. I look forward to working with him in Congress to create jobs, lower taxes, and enact term limits.”
