The following email was sent from SarahPAC in support of Steve Lonegan’s bid to become the next US Senator from New Jersey as well as other conservative candidates endorsed by SarahPAC.
Friends,Governor Sarah Palin will be in New Jersey this Saturday to throw her support behind a very important candidate, Mayor Steve Lonegan. We are at a pivotal point in our nation, and New Jersey will choose their next U.S. Senator on October 16. Both of the men running for office have served their state as mayor, but only one has actually governed by the values of New Jersey’s state motto: “Liberty and Prosperity.”
During one mayor’s tenure, his town’s unemployment nearly doubled, taxes skyrocketed, and violent crime increased. In fairness, Newark Mayor Cory Booker may not have noticed these facts between his constant tweeting and trips to Hollywood. The quest for celebrity can be distracting.
But contrast Mayor Cory Booker with Mayor Steve Lonegan. As mayor, Steve cut wasteful spending, eliminated wasteful services, stabilized taxes, and reduced debt. Perhaps it was Steve’s prior experience as a successful small business owner and entrepreneur that encouraged him to lead with conservative principles. He understands that government is too often the problem, not the solution. Steve asked Governor Palin for her support, and after reviewing the facts, Governor Palin and SarahPAC have endorsed his candidacy enthusiastically.
Now we need your help to support Steve and fight for the limited government principles our nation was founded on.
Your contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more will help SarahPAC support Mayor Steve Lonegan and our fight to preserve our founding principles!
Help us fight the liberal media’s lies that Steve can’t win in certain areas. His own electoral history proves that theory untrue. New Jersey deserves better, and Steve Lonegan will fight to reduce burdensome federal overreach, eliminate Obamacare, and stand up to the Washington political establishment that threatens our nation’s future.
Stand with Steve today!

Today I had a great opportunity to attend the Tea Party Express Rally for candidate Steve Lonegan of New Jersey. There’s a special election in our state on Wednesday, October 16th to fill the US Senate seat that was vacated earlier this year due to Senator Frank Lautenberg ‘s death.
The Tea Party Express team along with special guest speakers “The Great One”, Mark Levin and Governor Sarah Palin rocked the event with music and speeches that fired up the responsive crowd. Steve Lonegan spoke to his supporters with heartfelt passion about his country, his state, his family, and his desire to serve the people of New Jersey. I can tell that Steve Lonegan is ready to fight for “we the people” much like Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Senator Mike Lee of Utah.
Here’s a few photos from today’s event:

Always a crowd pleaser, Gov. Sarah Palin fires up the crowd in New Egypt, NJ.
Palin reminds us that New Jersey needs a leader (Lonegan) and not a Tweeter (Booker).

What’s not to love about this guy’s ride?
If you made it this far, that would be me and my wonderful husband who accompanied me to the rally.
In closing, if you live in New Jersey, please get out to vote on Wednesday, October 16th and I would urge you to cast your ballot for Mr. Steve Lonegan. If you don’t live in New Jersey but wish to support a conservative candidate, Mr. Lonegan would welcome your campaign donation in any amount as he’s being outspent by the Cory Booker campaign 12-1. Together we can send Steve Lonegan to Washington, DC to fight for “we the people”.

Press release from the “Lonegan for Senate” campaign website:
BOGOTA, NJ – Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed Mayor Steve Lonegan in his bid for the United States Senate today.
Governor Palin’s endorsement reads as follows:
On October 16, New Jersey has the choice of two mayors to send to the U.S. Senate. Only one of these mayors has embraced and governed by the values of New Jersey’s state motto – “Liberty and Prosperity.”
During one mayor’s tenure his town’s unemployment nearly doubled, taxes skyrocketed, and violent crime increased; but in fairness, Newark Mayor Cory Booker may not have noticed these facts between his constant tweeting and trips to Hollywood.
Contrast this with Mayor Steve Lonegan. As mayor, Steve cut wasteful spending, eliminated wasteful services, stabilized taxes, and reduced debt. Perhaps it was Steve’s prior experience as a successful small business owner and entrepreneur that encouraged him to lead with conservative principles. He understands that government is too often the problem, not the solution.
Steve asked for my support, and today I officially endorse his candidacy. I encourage voters in New Jersey to give Steve a look and not believe those in the media who tell us conservatives can’t win in certain areas! Steve’s own electoral history proves that theory untrue.
New Jersey deserves better! Steve Lonegan will fight to preserve our Liberty against government regulations like Obamacare that seek to limit our prosperity. Let’s come together, turn out, work hard, and elect conservative Steve Lonegan to the U.S. Senate on October 16!
Mayor Lonegan responded to Palin’s endorsement by saying, “I am honored to receive the endorsement of such a principled leader. Governor Palin has been more than a voice for traditional American values, she has been a leader in helping conservatives stand up for their ideas and win elections. Her endorsement is further proof that the Republican Party will always come together to stand for principled conservatives.” More

As reported by NJ.com earlier this evening:
Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor, is set to become the latest conservative to endorse Steve Lonegan in New Jersey’s special U.S. Senate race, The Star-Ledger has learned. Lonegan, a conservative Republican activist running against Democratic Newark Mayor Cory Booker, said his campaign will officially announce the news Thursday morning.
Palin will not visit New Jersey for the announcement, nor is she scheduled to stump for Lonegan here, the campaign said.
“She’s doing a big push for me through Facebook and Twitter,” Lonegan said. “It helps to ignite even more money coming in (to the campaign). It will help galvanize more attention to this national race.”
Lonegan, the former mayor of Bogota, has been facing an uphill battle against Booker, a celebrity politician in a heavily Democratic state. The two are running in the Oct. 16 election to fill the final 14 months of the U.S. Senate term vacated after Frank Lautenberg’s death. More

Posted to Governor Sarah Palin’s Facebook page earlier this afternoon:
Jason Smith for Missouri’s 8th Congressional District
Jason has worked tirelessly to build on the foundation of his humble beginnings and is a responsible and respected leader in the Show Me State. In Washington DC, Jason will maintain that innate sense of his community and will bring his commonsense conservatism to the halls of Congress. Jason recognizes that government is the problem, not the solution. He will protect our 2ndAmendment rights and work to promote a culture of life. We must all work together to send Mr. Smith to Washington on June 4th.

Governor Sarah Palin is endorsing Ted Yoho to represent the citizens of Florida’s 3rd district. Palin’s Facebook message is quite clear in that she believes Ted Yoho will help to bring “sudden and relentless reform” to Washington, D.C.
Dr. Ted Yoho isn’t afraid of hard work. To put himself through college and veterinary school he worked nights in a vegetable packing house and summers in construction. After graduating, he started and grew his own successful business. Yes, President Obama, Ted built that himself.
Tired of watching career politicians spend us into debt and tax us to death, Ted decided to run for Congress in Florida’s new 3rd Congressional District. No stranger to hard work, Ted took his conservative businessman’s perspective from town to town, county to county, and voter to voter asking them all the same thing: “Had enough?” The answer was clear. Ted’s victory in last week’s primary sent the same message we are seeing all across the country: Yes, we have had enough. We’ve had enough of our elected officials going to Washington and forgetting about us. We’ve had enough of them mortgaging our children’s future to foreign debtors. We’ve had enough of Congress wasting our money on useless programs that enrich themselves or reward their cronies. We’ve had enough of high taxes. We’ve had enough of Obamacare’s threat of faceless government bureaucrats making life and death health care decisions for us. We’ve have enough of no job growth and government red tape that stifles our entrepreneurial spirit and any hope of long term prosperity.
Underdog candidates like Ted aren’t running because it’s easy, and they don’t plan on going to Washington to just “go along to get along.” No, these underdogs are running to fight for sudden and relentless reform and they know the hard work it will require to make it happen. If you’ve had enough and are ready for some real reform that puts government back on our side, please join me in supporting Dr. Ted Yoho for Congress in FL-3. Let’s send this commonsense businessman to D.C. to fight for us. He won’t forget who sent him there.
– Sarah Palin

Earlier today Governor Sarah Palin again endorsed Congressman Gosar of Arizona’s 4th district. Via her Facebook page, Palin touted Gosar’s accomplishments as a freshman congressman and urged conservatives to support Gosar’s re-election bid.
Dr. Paul Gosar is not a career politician. He’s a dentist, a conservative, a small business owner, and someone I was proud to endorse in 2010. His accomplishments as a freshman congressman are remarkable and a shining example of what hardworking public service is all about.
You won’t find Paul playing endless rounds of golf or hobnobbing at D.C. cocktail parties. When Congress isn’t in session, you’ll find him with the people he represents. In the past 18 months, he’s held over 24 town halls and put over 60,000 miles on his old car traveling his district. And when he is not listening to the people he works for, he is with his wife Maude and his three kids, probably pulling weeds in his yard as he thinks of ways to shrink government and bring about the reform we need in Washington to secure a prosperous and fiscally responsible America for our children. As a freshman congressman, he didn’t just bide his time or go along to get along. He got down to work. Arizona’s largest newspaper reviewed Paul’s legislative accomplishments and concluded that “Bottom line: when it comes to sponsored bills and amendments passed by the House of Representatives, Gosar has been among the most successful new members not only in Arizona’s delegation, but also in the entire freshman class.” He’s fought hard to eliminate wasteful spending, sponsoring one bill after another to repeal wasteful programs and save the taxpayers’ money. He co-sponsored and voted for “Cut, Cap, and Balance,” and he took a tough vote to cut $2.1 trillion from the bloated federal budget, which is the largest nominal spending cut since World War II.
He’s been a leader on looking for ways to cut spending, and he’s also been a staunch fighter for the people of Arizona. Along with Congressman Darrell Issa, Paul has been laser-like in pursuing the truth about the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal, and Paul is the sponsor of a resolution of no confidence in Attorney General Holder. He’s also defended the interests of Arizonans in taking on the Obama administration’s over-reaching EPA bureaucrats.
I think you can see why he has the support of so many Arizonans – from Governor Jan Brewer to Senator Jon Kyl. I was proud to endorse Paul Gosar two years ago, and I believe he more than deserves to return to Congress to continue his good work for Arizona’s new 4th Congressional District. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Paul and donating and volunteering for him. This is one conservative public servant you can be certain will be working hard for you and getting positive results.

Governor Palin has endorsed another candidate for United States Senate and this time the nod goes to Dan Bongino of Maryland. Palin tweeted the following message of support:
DAN BONGINO FOR U.S. SENATE Though political pundits often dismiss conservative candidates running in deep blue… http://fb.me/1Rq0uH9GH
Palin’s endorsement message as posted to her Facebook page:
Though political pundits often dismiss conservative candidates running in deep blue states, I don’t believe in ignoring good candidates simply because they’re fighting uphill battles against the odds. In fact, I find such candidates incredibly brave and especially worthy of encouragement. In many cases, they are often the most articulate and courageous new conservative voices out there.
In 2012, we must cede no ground in our effort to win back control of the Senate and secure the House. We must fight every race to make sure we equip our next President with a wise Congress ready to work for all Americans. We also owe it to voters in every state — even the deep blue ones — to support good candidates for office so that they have a genuine choice in November. That is why I’m honored to announce my support for Dan Bongino in his Senate race in the “deep blue state” of Maryland. Dan is not a politician, but he has spent his career protecting them. He is a decorated United States Secret Service agent who served under three Presidents. Dan has seen what politicians have done to our country, and he’s decided, “If I’m not part of the solution, I’m part of the problem.” He based his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Maryland on a strong commonsense conservative platform, won his primary, and is now fighting an uphill battle against a 45-year career politician who in fact inherited his first political office from his uncle at the tender age of 23 way back in 1967 and has been in elected office ever since.
This is more than just a race of Republican vs. Democrat or conservative vs. liberal. It’s about taking our country back from the career politicians in both parties who have spent us into debt, nearly taxed us to death, enriched themselves, rewarded their cronies at our expense, and have no vision to help the private sector create the jobs we need to get this economy moving again. They are the reason why Congress’ approval rating is at an all-time low. In supporting Dan Bongino, we are offering Maryland voters a clear choice either to continue with the failed policies and crony capitalism of the permanent political class, or to shake things up with Dan Bongino and cast a vote that helps put our country back on the path to prosperity.
– Sarah Palin
