Oroho Endorses Lonegan for Congress: Declares Sussex County Lonegan Country 

State Senator Steve Oroho, (R-Sussex), today announced his support for conservative Republican Steve Lonegan in his campaign for congress in New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District.

 

"Steve Lonegan will go to Congress to cut taxes and create jobs," Oroho said.  "We need his determination and focus now, more than ever.  That's why I'm supporting Steve Lonegan for Congress in Congressional District 5, a district Steve has won in the past, albeit for different offices."

Oroho was referring to the 2009 Republican Primary and the 2013 Special Election for U.S. Senate when Lonegan crushed Cory Booker by 20 percent.

"Sussex County has strongly supported Steve Lonegan in the past and will do so again in 2018," Oroho said.  "New Jersey needs Steve's leadership in Washington, DC. and we're going to do our part to help him get there."

 

"People who know Steve Lonegan know that he's a person of great integrity and determination.  Steve is a gentleman who is always there to help his party, our region, and the country.  Steve knows what it is to overcome obstacles.  He believes that the safety net should be a trampoline, not a hammock,"  Oroho added.  

Lonegan expressed his admiration for Senator Oroho's leadership in the state legislature.

"Senator Oroho has been a strong and courageous leader for Sussex County in the state legislature," Lonegan said.  "He consistently fights for the interests of Sussex County -- smaller government, the right to life and the right to bear arms -- all are important issues in Northwest New Jersey and I share Senator Oroho's commitment to them."

Lonegan has already been endorsed by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Bergen County State Senator Gerry Cardinale, Mrs. Ann Kievit, President of the Northwest New Jersey Taxpayers' Association, Rev. Greg Quinlan, President of the Center for Garden State Families, on behalf of New Jersey for a Conservative Majority, Alexander Roubian, President of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS), and United States Senator Ted Cruz, and Warren County State Senator Mike Doherty.

Nathan Orr lies again, attacks NRA and NJ2AS

In yet another Facebook post, Nathan Orr attacked Pro-Second Amendment groups -- including the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) -- for supporting and endorsing Pro-Gun/Pro-Hunting/Pro-Freedom  candidates Parker Space and Hal Wirths.  Orr went so far as to claim that Wirths supports a certain gubernatorial candidate, which is totally false.

 

To understand why defenders of the Second Amendment support Parker Space and Hal Wirths, read this endorsement letter from NJ2AS:


http://www.nj2as.org/nj2as_endorses_oroho_space_and_wirths_in_district_24?utm_campaign=d24_endorsement&utm_medium=email&utm_source=nj2as

 

Orr and his running mate, David Atwood (AKA David Wygonski, Dave Wygo, et al), have been featuring an ad in which they make another outrageous lie -- that Assemblyman Parker Space and Assembly candidate Hal Wirths voted for Bail Reform legislation.  They certainly did not.

 

Assembly candidate Hal Wirths was not a member of the Legislature and could not vote on S-946.

 

Hal Wirths' running mate, Assemblyman Parker Space, voted NO.


Hal Wirths has made his position very clear:

 

Harold Wirths, R

The intent of the bail reform constitutional amendment was to give courts discretion in either allowing the release or the detention of persons arrested based on concerns on whether or not they are a threat to public safety. The Legislature was also authorized to pass laws concerning pretrial release and detention.

 

If elected, I will work with Senator Oroho, Assemblyman Space and law enforcement to rein in judges that are allowing those who are a threat to society back out on the streets.

 

In addition, as a freeholder who spent nearly a decade as liaison to the sheriff and the jail, I understand how much the county-operated justice system costs taxpayers. The goal of bail reform was to cut the costs of incarceration, and that would be the trade-off for a speedier system. As conservatives, we will work to minimize the impact these changes have on taxpayers.

And Assemblyman Parker Space voted NO.

 

That makes Nathan Orr and David Atwood... liars, again.

 

On top of this, Atwood and running mate Bill Hayden couldn't be bothered to vote on the public question of bail reform when it was placed on the ballot in November 2014.  Both Atwood and Hayden failed to vote in that election or in most other elections, for that matter.  Atwood missed every election in 2013, 2014, 2015, and the primary of 2016. Hayden missed every election in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and the primary of 2016.

 

And now they lie about Parker Space and Hal Wirths on top of it.
