Baker backs Bell in U.S. Senate tilt

James A. Baker, III, the 61st Secretary of State and 67th U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, today endorsed New Jersey Republican Senate nominee Jeff Bell and praised his monetary reform plan that is at the centerpiece of his campaign.

Baker in a statement said, “Jeff Bell was a key man in getting Ronald Reagan’s successful economic policies off the ground and now his advocacy for a dollar as good as gold is what’s needed in the U.S. Senate.” 

A longshot GOP challenger to incumbent U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bell was pleased.

“James Baker is one of America’s most distinguished public servants,” he said. “He played a leading role in making the U.S. into the world’s only superpower and I am enthused that he supports my economic plan to restore the kind of prosperity we had in the ’80s and ’90s.”
