Lonegan says his message of less government failed to ring through for a majority of New Jersey voters.
Booker was elected to complete the 15 months remaining on the term of Frank Lautenberg, whose death in June at age 89 gave rise to an unusual and abbreviated campaign. If he wants to keep the seat for a full six-year term — and all indications are that he does — Booker will be on the ballot again in November 2014.
With the special election to fill New Jersey’s vacant Senate seat in Congress just a few days away, Democrat Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Republican Steve Lonegan are hitting the campaign trail hard.
The two candidates for New Jersey’s open Senate seat went head to head in South Jersey Wednesday night.
