Lonegan lands endorsement of Hunterdon GOP chair

Former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan went to Hunterdon County this afternoon to gather signatures toward his U.S. Senate special election candidacy.

There he landed the endorsement of Hunterdon County GOP Chairman Henry Kuhl.

Fellow movement conservative state Sen. Mike Doherty (R-23) helped Lonegan gather petition signatures in hopes of having at least 1,000 in time for Monday’s deadline.

Lonegan carried Hunterdon in 2009 when he ran for governor in the Republican Primary against Gov. Chris Christie, and was integral to helping elect Doherty to the state senate.
