Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Lonegan today endorsed fellow conservative Mike Doherty (R-Washington Twp.), an assemblyman, for the state senate.
“Mike Doherty is a man of principle, and a true champion of the taxpayers. As I have traveled the State of New Jersey to support various conservative issues, Mike has always been by my side to fight for smaller government and lower taxes,” said Lonegan. “As an elected official, Mike has never voted for a new tax. He knows that the solution to our problems is cutting spending, not increasing taxes.”
Doherty is running against Assemblywoman Marcia Karrow (R-Flemington) and Hunterdon County Freeholder Matt Holt in a special convention to take over the state senate seat of Leonard Lance (R-Flemington), who’s moving up to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Doherty has not yet endorsed anyone for governor.
