The U.S. Special Senate Election will take place on October 16th, at which time we must elect a new Senator to represent the working people of New Jersey.
This year’s candidates present a clear choice. Newark Mayor Cory Booker has a vision for moving our country forward and will fight to strengthen and expand the middle class. Steve Lonegan, Booker’s opponent, has an extremely anti-worker, anti-union platform that will leave the middle class behind. Lonegan says that Gov. Christie hasn’t gone far enough to bust New Jersey’s unions. He supports “right to work” for less legislation that will jeopardize our ability to negotiate for better wages and benefits.
It’s clear from this comparison that we can’t afford to allow Steve Lonegan to represent us in Washington. Please remember to register by Wednesday, September 25th and vote on Wednesday, October 16th for Cory Booker for U.S. Senate.
