(Trenton) – The New Jersey Democratic State Committee released a new web video today in response to the latest in a very (very) long line of U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan’s news conferences attacking Newark Mayor Cory Booker.
“It would be an understatement to say that Steve Lonegan and his campaign are obsessed with Mayor Booker,” said New Jersey Democratic State Committee communications director, Matt Farrauto. “New Jersey’s families deserve to know where Steve Lonegan stands on the issues and a real debate about the serious problems that confront the state and the country. Unfortunately, they’re being subjected to the near-daily rants of an extreme candidate, who’s obsessed with tearing down his opponent instead of explaining how he would help build up New Jersey families.”
The web video, available here, points out that Lonegan’s positions are so extreme that the candidate may be intentionally avoiding them. Steve Lonegan opposes any minimum wage, wants to criminalize abortion even in instances of rape and incest, and would to privatize Social Security and Medicare.
