Congressional hopeful Steve Lonegan secured another endorsement from a member of the Paul family.
Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) endorsed Lonegan’s CD 3 bid Thursday, saying in a statement that the former Bogota mayor is “exactly what we need in Washington.”
“Steve Lonegan will be a fantastic congressman for the third district of New Jersey,” Paul said. “His commitment to smaller government and more personal liberties is exactly what we need in Washington.”
Paul endorsed Lonegan’s 2009 gubernatorial bid against then former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie. Paul’s son, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) stumped for Lonegan in New Jersey last year during the former mayor’s U.S. Senate bid against Cory Booker.
Lonegan said in a statement announcing the endorsement that he’s honored to receive the nod from the former libertarian congressman.
“His leadership in the fight for smaller government, less spending and personal liberty is exemplary,” Lonegan said. “I look forward to bringing the principles we share to Congress next year.”
Lonegan is competing against former Randolph Mayor Tom MacArthur in the Republican primary for the opportunity to succeed outgoing U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3) in Washington.
