HIGHTSTOWN, N.J., March 17, 2014 – Endorsements for Murray Sabrin for U.S. Senate keep piling up faster than the campaign staff can keep track of them, with the latest coming from attorney and long-time GOP activist Alan Ashkinaze, announced Sabrin’s campaign headquarters.
“Having Alan Ashkinaze pulling for us means we’re creating the broadest possible coalition of conservatives, mainstream types, libertarians, disaffected Democrats and independents,” said Sabrin. “My platform of common-sense, kitchen-table ideas to create real jobs in the private sector, rein in government spending, lower taxes and respect for the civil liberties of every American resonates with people.”
In an email to Sabrin, Ashkinaze wrote:
“I strongly endorse Murray Sabrin for US Senate. I have known and worked with Murray for many years and have always respected his passion for the defense of individual liberties. Murray’s views on the federal government’s increasing role in healthcare and education, threats to our digital privacy, and the Federal Reserve’s control over interest rates offer a stark contrast to the views of Cory Booker. I believe that Murray has the potential to energize young voters in New Jersey in the same way that Ron Paul energized young voters throughout the nation.”
In addition to his successful Hackensack law practice, Ashkinaze founded and chairs the Tuesday Group, an informal center-right coalition of New Jersey elected officials, activists and interested citizens that meets on a monthly basis to discuss issues, hear from people in federal and state government and generally talk politics. Meetings are closed to the press.
Ashkinaze also served as an aide and advisor to former Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler, and he was on Mitt Romney’s New Jersey steering committee during his 2008 campaign for president.
“Alan knows the state and its people,” said Sabrin. “I look forward to hearing his ideas and having his wise council as we move forward to victory over Cory Booker in November.”
