Flashback: Steve Lonegan Says NJ Senate Election Is A Referendum On Obama
In recent weeks, as he was rising in the polls, Steve Lonegan, the Republican candidate for Senate in New Jersey, was telling anyone who would listen that his campaign was "an all-out referendum on everything [President] Obama is doing to the country."
As he told Bryan Fischer last month (about 4:00 in), if he could defeat Democratic candidate Cory Booker, it "would be the shot heard around the world" that would repudiate President Obama's entire agenda and catapult the Tea Party into the stratosphere:
What's on the ballot on October 16 is Obamacare. This is going to be a referendum vote in the state of New Jersey on the Obama agenda, on Obamacare, on traditional marriage, on the NSA intrusion into our privacy, on the IRS abuse of power, Common Core intrusion into education, all of these things are the issues in this election.
A win here in New Jersey for me, for the conservative movement, would be the shot heard around the world, it would re-galvanize the conservative movement, the Tea Party movement. But a win by Booker, again, the Hollywood stand-in for Barack Obama, this president will parade around the country as a validation of everything he's doing to this nation and we just can't let that happen.
Last night, Lonegan lost his race by a margin of 55-44, so does that mean that Booker's election is a "validation of everything [Obama] doing to this nation"?
