Fort Lee NJ, Libertarian Party candidate Murray Sabrin is going on the offensive against incumbent Democrat Bob Menendez.
“Bob Menendez is the quintessential example of why Americans are fed up with Washington politics. His time in the Senate has been an embarrassing, politically-driven circus devoid of any civility or critical thought,” Sabrin said. “United States Senators should spend more time defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and less time engaging in partisan gamesmanship. Bob Menendez is a crooked, unethical career politician. He is a disgrace and should resign immediately.”
Sabrin says he is the logical choice for independents and Democrats concerned about Menendez’s voting record and history of corruption. “Bob Menendez voted for corporate bailouts and higher taxes. He is totally out of touch with the people in our communities. Hard-working New Jersey families deserve better than another corrupt political insider who behaves as though they’re above the law. When I’m your Senator I will fight for peace, individual liberty, and financial independence.”
Sabrin is a professor of finance at Ramapo College running on the Libertarian ticket to cut federal spending, legalize cannabis, bring the troops home, and promote universal credit for donations to nonprofits. He is running an active, grassroots campaign and has polled as high as 16%. He is an immigrant and the son of Holocaust survivors and his father was a leader in the Polish resistance against Nazi Germany during World War Two.
Sabrin made headlines last month as the only 2018 Libertarian Party candidate to be endorsed by former Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul. Paul said in a press release:
“I am pleased to endorse my good friend of 35 years Murray Sabrin for United States Senate. Murray’s dedication to, and knowledge of, the principles of liberty will make him an effective advocate for freeing the people of New Jersey and the Nation from excessive taxes, debt, and inflation, as well as ending the ongoing violations of our right to free speech, property, and privacy. Murray will also be an outspoken Senator for peaceful relations with other nations, and work to ensure that our immigration policies adhere to common sense solutions like his proposal to have immigrants obtain sponsors so they can assimilate and become financially independent.”
