Lonegan to House Republicans: Wait For My Victory, Obama Will Fold

Lonegan PC presserGOP nominee for U.S. Senate Steve Lonegan today urged Republicans in the House of Representatives not to give into President Barack Obama’s demands for re-opening the government and raising the federal debt ceiling, declaring, “When I win, Obama will fold.”

“Republicans need to hold firm because seven days from today when Bob Menendez escorts me down the Senate aisle for my swearing in, the message about what our party should do will be clear for all,” Lonegan maintained.

“I have come as far as I have in this campaign by ignoring the advice from all the pollsters and consultants who have told me to change what I think and change who I am,” Lonegan added. “New Jerseyans are looking for a leader who fights for working taxpayers, not a Hollywood wannabe like Cory Booker who will rubber stamp the President’s far-left wing agenda.”

Lonegan says his internal polling shows a neck-and-neck race in the U.S. Senate contest and that all the momentum is in his favor. “My victory in this election on Wednesday will send a message to Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi that the American people want an end to Obamacare and the rest of the President’s radical agenda.”

The former three-term Bogota mayor called on Republicans to stop listening to the same consultants and pollsters who blew the 2012 election and who are telling the GOP to fold and instead stand firm for seven more days.

    Lonegan has gumption. But, he is potentially per-emptively shooting off his feet I think with this neck and neck race thing.

    Virtually no poll shows it that close and this quote smacks of desperation “The former three-term Bogota mayor called on Republicans to stop listening to the same consultants and pollsters who blew the 2012 election and who are telling the GOP to fold and instead stand firm for seven more days.” It even sounds narcissistic.

    There is something to be said for “throwing all you have at it,” but should the real polls bear out and he loses by 10 or more; he will look like a total arse, and thus have killed off any chance to stay relevant to conservatism.

    That’s why I am concerned Mark Levin has jumped in so deep on this.

    Gee, I wonder how long it will take ole Steve to throw Shaftan under the bus?

    Congressional Republicans currently have an unfavorability rating of over 70% mainly because they were afraid to stand up to the Tea Party’s crazy ideas which happen to be the same ones that Lonegan is now pinning his fading star to.

  4. Mr. English said at 6:48 pm on October 11th, 2013:

    you are conveniently leaving out Obama’s 37% poll rating and the fact that Congress in total is at 5% favorability.

    And, if you are basing that on that flawed NBC poll, please note that Democrats were over polled by 12% and it included double the representative amount of

    And of course, most polls are media based to make news, not report it. So, since most media is in the tank for the President, I; or anyone should take any stock in any of these polls.
