New York, NY - -(Ammoland.com)- Just like in the Colorado recall elections New York City’s overbearing Mayor, Mike Bloomberg, is spending a cool one million dollars this week to buy Newark NJ’s Cory Booker the NJ U.S Senate seat that is up for special election Wednesday October 16th 2013.
Booker has stumbled and fumbled a 30 point lead in the polls down to just a 3 percent lead against NJ conservative republican candidate Steve Lonegan. Lonegan is New Jersey version of Ted Cruz and a staunch supporter of the Second amendment and a active member of all of NJ’s pro second amendment grass roots groups, like NJ2AS. And this is why Mayor Bloomberg is pouring funds into the senate race, as it would be another massive defeat if he can not buy this race in the state across the Hudson from Mike’s home kingdom NYC.
It had initially seemed that Booker, a rising star in the Democratic Party whose Twitter prowess had given him far greater reach than the average city mayor, would coast to victory. But the recent tightening in the polls, combined with some recent missteps, including the revelations that he had engaged in banter with a stripper on Twitter, have raised concerns that he is under-performing against a far-right candidate in a Democratic state.
Now it appears that New Jersey voters are poised to send an independent voice to the U.S. Senate called Steve Lonegan. As a former small town mayor, “Steve truly is a man of the people, and he will bring common sense back to Washington.”
Says Steve; “When I was elected [mayor] 4 years ago, voters were angry about Obamacare. Today, they still are. Every day, seniors, small business owners, and workers are learning that they can’t keep their preferred insurance policies.”
Steve’s election promises to be a referendum for New Jersey on Obamacare and the explosive growth of big government.
Unfortunately, with Bloomberg’s money now raining down on the race Democrats can still squeak out a win if New Jersey gun owners fail to make it to the polls Next week.
