Republican New Jersey Senate Candidate Steve Lonegan said on Thursday that he has a way to single handedly stop Obamacare and help the GOP emerge victorious in its shutdown standoff, TPM reports.
in the statement issued by Lonegan’s campaign, it tells Republicans in Washington “not to capitulate to the president’s unreasonable demands” until after Wednesday’s special U.S. Senate election in New Jersey.
Even though Cory Booker is leading in the double digits, Lonegan believes he will win and in turn, his victory will cause Obama to give in to the Republican demands to stop the health care law.
Lonegan said arrogantly in the statement,”When I win, Obama will fold.”
Talking Points Memo reports, “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,” said Lonegan. “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.”
