Movement conservative Republican Steve Lonegan won’t have the endorsement of Garden State Equality.
The organization’s board has unanimously voted to endorse Newark Mayor Cory Booker to be the next U.S. Senator from New Jersey.
“Garden State Equality proudly endorses our friend and ally Cory Booker to be the next U.S. Senator from New Jersey,” said GSE Executive DIrector Troy Stevenson. “We have no doubt that Cory will carry on the legacy of Senator Lautenberg, and be a true champion of equality in Washington, as he has been in Newark.
“In the wake of last weeks shameful comments by Mayor Booker’s opponent, the choice in this election couldn’t be more clear. There is only one candidate in this race that stands for fairness and equality. There is only one candidate that is an ally to the LGBTQ community. Garden State Equality and our 130,000 members will stand with that candidate, we will stand with Cory.”
