Murray Sabrin is running for U.S. Senate

Murray SabrinRamapo College Professor Murray Sabrin made it official yesterday.  He is running for the GOP nomination to challenge Senator Cory Booker.

Sabrin made his announcement on NJ 101.5’s Dennis and Judy Show yesterday followed  by a fundraising appeal to supporters via email.

Sabrin’s announcement is an indication that he received sufficient encouragement from Republican county chairmen and other party leaders over the last two weeks since he announced his interest in challenging Booker that believes he has enough support to win the majority of establishment party lines in the primary.  Sabrin told WHDT 9 News, that he would only enter the primary if he had sufficient establishment support to avoid a competitive primary.

As a three time statewide candidate, once for governor as a Libertarian and twice as a Republican primary candidate for U.S. Senate, Sabrin is the favorite to win the GOP nomination by virtue of the name recognition and relationships built during those earlier races.

    The line was never going to be blank, it was going to be:
    Geraldo Rivera
    John Crowley
    Andy Unanue
    Dick Zimmer
    Joseph Pennacchio
    and with a bench like this, 2009 is going to be a great year; the future looks good for Republicans with Christie leading the ship. What could possibly go wrong? With Christie’s leadership, we’ll sweep Republicans into the Legislature and Senate, and bring Republicans to Washington too!

    … yeah, I remember 2008, the good ol’ days.

    All kidding aside, there are 2 or 3 elected R’s right here in Monmouth County that I think could be decent candidates and run a competitive race.

    This is great news!! If only Anna Little was running against Pallone we would have a powerful one-two knockout punch for liberty and freedom. I’m also hearing that other real Conservatives are running as well, including Jeff Bell and Rich Pezzullo. The RINOs are too scared to run a candidate against Cory Booker because they don’t want to offend their Master and Booker’s patron, Chris Christie, who wants to make New Jersey safe for RINOs and Democratic bosses like George Norcross and Joe DiVincenzo.

    The Tea Party is back, and we are going to wipe the smirks off the faces of the RINOs and Christiecrats come November.
