HIGHTSTOWN, N.J., March 18, 2014 - Sen. Mike Doherty, R-Warren, is the latest prominent New Jersey elected official to endorse Murray Sabrin's campaign for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Cory Booker, the campaign announced this morning.
"I couldn't be happier to have Mike Doherty with us," said Sabrin. "On issues like foreign and defense policy and job creation, he and I are kindred spirits. We know what works in both, and we've seen the folly of policies that don't work."
Doherty, a West Point graduate and patent attorney with a practice in Washington, N.J., has served in the Senate since 2009. Before that, he was in the General Assembly from 2002 - 2009. He is a forceful and articulate advocate of limited government, free enterprise and keeping the United States out of unnecessary overseas entanglements. He endorsed the presidential efforts of former Texas Rep. Ron Paul in both 2008 and 2012.
When asked why he supported Sabrin's candidacy, Doherty was to the point: "Murray Sabrin's foreign policy views are very similar to mine," he said. "Sure, we need a strong defense, but we don't need to meddle in every scuffle that crops up around the globe."
"We've got enough to do here at home that isn't getting done, so it makes no sense to get involved in conflicts half-way around the world - let Europe clean up Europe," Doherty said.
"In addition, Murray Sabrin knows the free-enterprise system. He knows how a dollar is made, and he knows how that same dollar can be wasted or destroyed through crony-capitalism and the manipulative Federal Reserve policies we see daily in Washington, D.C.," he said. "This needs to stop, and Murray is the man who has what it takes to get the job done."
With legislative and other prominent endorsements streaming in by the day, Sabrin's campaign is building a head of steam unmatched and unmatchable by his primary opponents who, to date, have no credible names in the plus column of their campaign ledger.
"People who are in a position to make a difference in New Jersey know me - they know my record, my beliefs and where I stand," said Sabrin. "Unlike my opponents, most of whom are political and public policy rookies or, in one case, someone trying to relive a bygone era and faded memories, I have the experience and credibility to make a difference for the people of New Jersey and the United States."
"It's my candidacy that's being endorsed by the real leaders of today and tomorrow, and working together we make a formidable team," said Sabrin

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
