CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN STEVE LONEGAN RELEASES FIRST TV AD IN GOP PRIMARY
Tom MacArthur is a Liberal
TOMS RIVER, NJ – Steve Lonegan, former mayor and Republican candidate for New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District, released his campaign’s first television ad today, drawing stark contrast between Lonegan’s conservative record and the liberal policies Tom MacArthur championed as mayor of Randolph.
“Since day one, Tom has been waging a false, negative campaign against Steve – and now we know why. With a record as liberal as his, it’s no wonder he’s been trying to distract Republicans of the third district,” Lonegan manager Chris Santora said.
“A look at his record in Randolph shows MacArthur raised property taxes each and every year he was in office1. And, he used higher taxes to pay for low income housing so Randolph would have, in his words, more “diversity”2. That is something Barack Obama would say, not a Republican,” added Santora.
“Voters know where I stand, and that’s for strong, conservative values. I will fight from day one to repeal Obamacare and oppose increases to the debt ceiling or any tax increase. And, I certainly don’t support raising taxes to pay for low income housing,” said Steve Lonegan.
Lonegan’s ad draws attention to Tom MacArthur’s mayoral record of raising taxes every year and promoting Obama-style social-engineering by way of artificially increasing diversity through low-income housing.
