A conservative group has released its closing argument against New Jersey Senate candidate Cory Booker, and it’s a doozy:
It would seem that Mr. Booker is a skilled but unaccomplished political climber — a celebrified, all-talk, non-detail-oriented, exceptionally ambitious politician. He also has a penchant for fabricating composite characters and dramatic fables to boost his cred and “relatability.” Sound familiar? Booker is opposed in this race by Steve Lonegan, an hard-charging, unapologetic, legally-blind conservative who is counting on the base to show up in force in what is likely to be a low turnout election. His campaign has blasted out emails to supporters informing them that based on their strategists’ turnout projections, Lonegan will be in a position to win if just half of the state’s Romney voters show up tomorrow and vote Republican). Though the former Bogota mayor’s odds are still quite long, polls have tightened down the stretch. Monmouth University’s final poll of the race shows Booker’s lead dwindling to just 10 percentage points, 52-42. Lonegan’s strategy has been to goose the conservative base and sully his opponent’s undeserved ‘golden boy’ reputation. (If you think Booker has earned that aura, talk to the Newark residents featured in the video above). We’ll see how the plan plays out soon enough. I’ll leave you with full video last weekend’s major Lonegan rally featuring Mark Levin (36:30) and Sarah Palin(1:15:00):
If you live in Jersey, election day is tomorrow — Wednesday, October 16. Polls are open from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm ET.
