    Cory Booker Supporters Heckle White Opponent: “Go Back Where You Came From” – Update:

    Cory Booker Supporters Heckle White Opponent: “Go Back Where You Came From” – Update: Video of Booker’s Goon Squad Added…


    Can you imagine the outcry if whites were telling blacks to “go back where you came from”?
    NEWARK – Street operatives chanting “Cory, Cory, Cory,” this afternoon stampeded a press conference by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan outside the derelict former property owned by Newark Mayor Cory Booker on Court Street.
    The Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, Booker gave the property away for $1 but not before drawing the ire of neighbors who say the mayor left the place abandoned and gave the local example of a poor steward.
    “A tax deduction,” said Lonegan, “While he dumps this horrific piece of garbage on the city.”
    The former mayor of Bogota stood at a lectern in front of the boarded up residential building, which he said has turned into a neighborhood crack house.
    “Go back where you came from,” a voice called, and moments later a chorus of jeers filled the street as men stormed Lonegan’s presser and shouted over him as he attempted to get across his points.

    These people were sent by Newark Now, Booker's "charity" who was gifted Cory's Crackhouse, to attempt to disrupt Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan's news conference outside 130 Court Street, Newark.

    Poll puts Steve Lonegan within 3 points of Cory Booker in NJ

    By Yaël Ossowski / October 3, 2013 / 2 Comments





    CLOSING FAST? Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan on local New Jersey television.

    By Yael Ossowski | for Watchdog
    As the weather cools down, the race to be New Jersey’s next U.S. senator is heating up.
    That’s the indication from an internal poll released Thursday by former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan‘s campaign, claiming Newark Mayor and Democratic candidate Cory Booker only has a lead of 47-44.
    The pollster for the Lonegan campaign, Rick Shaftan, leaked the results of the internal poll to Save Jersey, only a day after releasing a poll showing a 6-point difference to National Review Tuesday.
    Whether these polls actually reflect the true state of the race is anyone’s guess, but Lonegan’s campaign feels recently emboldened by the endorsement of conservative darling and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who will tweet her support from her home base in Alaska.
    The last official poll conducted in the race by Mammoth University projected Booker had a 13-point lead over Lonegan, 53 percent to 40 percent.
    The survey was conducted by telephone from Sept. 26-29 with 571 likely New Jersey voters. It has a margin of error of 4.1 percent.

    Could you imagine the national outrage if a group of white people chanted "We Dont Want You Here" to a black candidate in a white neighborhood?

    Booker wins New Jersey Senate race



    By Alexandra Jaffe - 10/16/13 09:33 PM ET

    Newark Mayor Cory Booker won the New Jersey Senate special election on Wednesday night in an unsurprising finale to a surprisingly contentious race.
    With nearly all precincts reporting, Booker had 55 percent of the vote to Lonegan's 44 percent, The Associated Press reported.


    Despite polling that showed the race tightening in the final weeks as negative press and attacks from Lonegan advanced, Booker maintained a double-digit lead and most recently led Lonegan by 14 points in a Tuesday poll.

    Booker will replace interim Sen. Jeffrey Chiesa (R) and return the Democratic majority to 10 seats, which was depleted when Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) died in June. He'll hold the historic title of New Jersey's first black senator.
    In his victory speech, Booker lauded voters for heading to the polls despite a widespread dissatisfation with politics.

    “Despite the cynicism and the negativity we often see on TV, despite a special election, New Jerseyans, hundreds of thousands, rejected all that and came out and voted,” he said.
    Still, turnout was, as expected, low, with about 1.2 million voters, of nearly 5.5 million registered voters in New Jersey, hitting the polls.
    Lonegan, in his concession speech, shrugged off his loss.

    “I said to myself, who wants that job anyway?” he joked.
    Booker will join the Senate with unusually high expectations for a junior senator, as Democratic leaders have already indicated they want him to use his formidable fundraising talents to aid vulnerable Democrats in 2014.

    But he's been dogged by critics that he's more celebrity than substance, with a prolific social media presence that catapulted his star power.

    Speaking Thursday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, Booker said President Obama phoned him after the win to offer encouragement.

    “I appreciate that the president has a complicated set of problems. He left me an incredibly encouraging message on my voicemail last night after midnight,” Booker said when asked about his opinion of Obama.

    “Before I start pontificating about what the president should do, I want to start figuring out what Cory Booker can do to make a dramatic difference for folks in New Jersey.”

    Working hard, observers and Booker supporters say, will help the senator-elect move past the spate of negative press he's received in recent weeks. Booker faced scrutiny of his record as mayor of Newark, including an investment in a flailing startup called Waywire, dilapidated homes he owned in Newark, a flirtatious interaction with a stripper on Twitter and whether his celebrity connections truly enriched his city.

    Those celebrity connections, however, helped him outraise Lonegan 8-to-1 and rake in in $11.2 million, $8.8 million of which he spent on the race, as of late September.

    Actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, actress Jennifer Garner and Oprah Winfrey, as well as Hollywood producer Jeffrey Katzenberg and director Stephen Spielberg, were a few of the stars that contributed to Booker's campaign.

    Lonegan, for his part, struggled to raise money and draw attention throughout his campaign, though he did nab a number of high-profile endorsements in the final weeks as polling showed the race to be closer than expected. Tea Party leader Sarah Palin made a stop for him in New Jersey, and both Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) also hit the trail for the underdog.

    But both Lonegan and his campaign were prone to missteps, with the candidate calling Booker's dismissal of speculation over his sexuality "weird" at one point, and a campaign adviser drawing headlines in the final weeks for his profanity-laden musings about Booker's sexuality.

    The Booker campaign largely ignored Lonegan's comments and instead knocked him as "too extreme" for New Jersey as the campaign turned negative in its final weeks.

    Indeed, New Jersey — which chose President Obama with nearly 60 percent of the vote in 2012 and hasn't sent a Republican to the Senate in more than 40 years — leaned too far Democratic for the deeply conservative Lonegan to gain much traction.


    Booker's win was so widely expected that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee put out a press release congratulating Booker before the AP had called the race and with just a fraction of precincts reporting.

    “Cory Booker is going to be a great Senator for New Jersey, and I congratulate him on his victory tonight," DSCC Chairman Michael Bennet (Colo.) said in the statement.

    Bennet nodded to the fact that Booker will be useful on the campaign trail, noting that, as senator, Cory will have an incredible opportunity not only to serve his constituents and the country, but also to help Democrats across the country defeat the [Sen.] Ted Cruz [R-Texas] loyalists who are running for the US Senate."

    And he declared that “tonight’s election is a repudiation of the Tea Party’s reckless agenda and a Republican party that grants too much influence to people on the fringes."

    LONEGAN ANNOUNCES BID FOR CONGRESS



    Thursday, February 6th, 2014 @ 5:28PM
    “Republicans in New Jersey need a strong and consistent voice in Congress and the Third District deserves a candidate who is prepared to win. I won the Third by 8 points in October and I’ll win by even more in 2014.”

    LONEGAN FOR CONGRESS NEWS
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 6, 2014

    NEWS CONTACT: news@lonegan2014.com – (609) 664-3321 Ext. 1
    TOMS RIVER, NJ – Mayor Steve Lonegan today declared his candidacy for Congress in New Jersey’s Third District promising to build on his victory over Cory Booker in the 2013 Special Senate race.

    “Republicans in New Jersey need a strong and consistent voice in Congress and the Third District deserves a candidate who is prepared to win,” Lonegan said. ”I won the Third by 8 points in October and I’ll win by even more in 2014.”

    Lonegan spoke to a crowded hotel ballroom of over 150 enthusiastic supporters. He was introduced by Medford Councilman Randy Pace and supported by Lavallette Mayor Walter LaCicero, Ocean Gate Mayor Paul Kennedy, Ocean Gate Republican Club President Riley Applegate, Ocean Gate Councilman Brian DiStefano, and Ocean Gate Councilman John Serpica.

    “Steve Lonegan represents our best chance to hold on to the Third District and carry the down-ballot races in 2014,” Mayor LaCicero said. “I’m proud to stand with my friend, Lavallette resident, and our next Congressman, Steve Lonegan.”

    Lonegan’s overwhelming strengths were on display at the Campaign Kick-Off where speakers highlighted his deep fundraising abilities and broad base of organizational support.

    “Steve Lonegan cultivated over 25,000 donors in just 5 months in his recent Senate campaign and built a statewide network of volunteers that went door-to-door in every County across NJ,” LaCicero said. “Steve is well positioned to win the Third a District and that victory begins today with the support of those in this room.”

    His supporters can't be any brighter than the career politician they elected.
