The Conservatives with Attitude(CWA)Executive Committee today announced its unanimous endorsement of Assemblyman Michael Doherty (R-Washington)to fill the New Jersey State Senate seat vacated by Congressman-elect/state Sen. Leonard Lance (R-Hunterdon).
“Assemblyman Doherty is a pro-taxpayer, pro-family conservative who
believes in smaller government, lower taxes, and personal responsibility,” said Michael Illions, co-executive director of Conservatives with Attitude. “He is a true, Back to Basics Republican with the voting record to prove it.”
Conservatives with Attitude celebrated the four-term Doherty for his multiple endorsements from conservative, pro-business, and pro-family organizations including the New Jersey Right to Life and the National Rifle Association.
“Assemblyman Doherty is the clear choice to serve in the New Jersey
State Senate representing the 23rd District,” Illions said. “His
experience as the senior Assemblyman from the district coupled with
his voting record and unwavering values and principles are needed more
than ever in the Senate, and we look forward to the breath of fresh
air he will be both in the upper chamber and in the Republican Caucus.
“This endorsement signifies that Conservatives with Attitude is
prepared to dedicate all of its resources, both financial and
organizational, to assist Assemblyman Doherty in his campaign,” Illions added.
Dohery is expected to battle Assemblywoman Marcia Karrow (R-Flemington) for Lance's vacated seat.
