Ron Paul, who endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Lonegan today, also urged his New Jersey supporters to vote for Assemblyman Mike Doherty (R-Oxford) for state Senate.
Doherty was the only member of the New Jersey legislature (and perhaps the only elected official in the state) to endorse Paul for president. Doherty is now running against incumbent Marcia Karrow (R-Raritan Twp), who beat Doherty in a special convention to succeed U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance in the state Senate, on Lonegan’s slate.
Paul praised Doherty for frequently voting against new taxes in the legislature.
It's tough to remain independent and maintain an honest assessment of what's going on in the world. Mike Doherty does not have a fan club among the politicians, government bureaucrats, and lobbyists who run New Jersey,” wrote Paul.
