Lonegan says he plans to support Doherty if Doherty pursues U.S. Senate bid

TRENTON – Former GOP gubernatorial candidate Steve Lonegan said if state Sen. Mike Doherty (R-23) runs for the U.S. Senate, Doherty could depend on his support.

“If he runs he’s got to get in the race soon,” said Lonegan, New Jersey’s executive director of Americans for Prosperity.

Explaining his absence from today’s Doherty-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX.) endorsement rally, the movement conservative leader said he has narrowed his presidential choices down to Paul and U.S. Rep. Michele Bahmann (R-MN.).
