In an email on Thursday to all of Ron Paul’s supporters in New Jersey, Dr. Paul announced his endorsement of Steve Lonegan, former mayor of Bogota, for governor of the state:
Steve Lonegan is strong advocate of free markets. I was very impressed by his record of budget restraint as Mayor of Bogota, NJ. He has been a vocal critic of runaway spending and taxpayer funded bailouts, and he understands that we must reject the nanny state and return government to its proper, restrained role.
Mayor Lonegan, running under the Republican party, very closely embodies the same principles and beliefs that YAL members hold. The YAL chapters at Rutgers University and Montclair State University recently hosted Mayor Lonegan on their campuses to speak to students and get them acquainted with him and his beliefs. Both events were very successful, bringing out large numbers of student, faculty, and local resident attendees. Lonegan told me himself after the Rutgers event that he is very pleased with what our chapters are achieving.
