Ron Paul Endorses Murray Sabrin for U.S. Senate

Ron Paul and Murray SabrinFormer Texas Congressman Ron Paul endorsed Ramapo College Finance Professor Murray Sabrin for the New Jersey GOP U.S. Senate nomination, Sabrin’s campaign announced today.

In a letter to Sabrin expressing his endorsement, Paul said that the professor recognizes the dramatic overreach of ObamaCare will impact all Americans for decades to come.  Paul cited Sabrin’s opposition to NSA spying on American citizens.

 

“I have known Murray for 30 years, and he is a

true champion of liberty. I am proud to endorse

his campaign for U.S. Senate in New Jersey.”

“I’m honored and humbled to have the support of my friend, Ron Paul,” said Murray, “and I know his endorsement sends a strong message throughout New Jersey that I’m in this race all the way and in it to win.”

“America and New Jersey cannot afford Cory Booker in the Senate for a full, six-year term given his support of job-killing taxes, environmental regulations that will cost almost 8,500 New Jerseyans their jobs over the next 10 years and, of course the increasingly problematic Obamacare. We can’t afford to let Cory Booker pay attention to the nation’s business in the same way The New York Times recently exposed he failed to pay attention to the city of Newark’s business when he was mayor. The hard working people of New Jersey deserve better, and I will give that to them when I’m elected to the United States Senate.”

The Sabrin campaign said they are proud of Paul’s endorsement not only because of their shared principles, but because of the access to Paul’s grassroots fundraising apparatus that raised millions of dollars during the former congressman’s presidential campaigns.

    Put a knife in it. Sabrin is toast this fall with Ron Paul’s endorsement. The only question left now is will the BSTPG now endorse Uncle Murray.

    The American Tea Party Congress needs to get together and decide which of the candidates is deserving of Tea Party support. Ron Paul’s endorsement of Murray Sabrin is important, but so is Steve Lonegan’s endorsement of Jeff Bell. My guess is the edge belongs to Murray Sabrin because he has greater name recognition, especially among Conservatives. But we shall see and keep an open mind.

    My only question is can Sabin eclipse the 10% of the vote that Mr. Paul received when he himself ran in the NJ Republican presidential primary in 2012 and finished roughly 70 points behind Gov. Romney who in turn finished 19 points behind the President in the general election?

    So, Bayshore Bulldog,

    What is wrong with Rich Pezzulo?

    […] surrogates are getting in on the act, too. Professor Murray Sabrin earned the backing of Ron Paul (it’s a libertarian thing) and former Reagan campaign staffer Jeff Bell who once toppled an […]

    @Maxster, I have no objection to Rich Pezzullo provided he has Tea Party support and can demonstrate he’ll be an uncompromising advocate in Congress on behalf of Constitutional Government and Conservative Principles. I think he’ll be an effective candidate, as he demonstrated when he ran for Governor in 1997 and got nearly as many votes as Murray Sabrin.

    I am not yet ready to make an official endorsement. I will keep an open mind and wait to see what the American Tea Party Congress is going to do.
