Presidential candidate Ron Paul today endorsed Ramapo College Professor Murray Sabrin for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in New Jersey.
"Murray has devoted his entire career to promoting limited government and personal freedom, and I am proud to have known him and worked with him for more than 25 years," said Paul. "H will not only be an outstanding representative of the people of New Jersey, but the greatest advocate of liberty and constitutional principles the U.S. Senate has seen in decades. I am delighted to endorse him and encourage all Americans who believe in freedom to support him enthusiastically."
Sabrin, who has not formally announced his candidacy, says he will focus on helping Paul win the New Jersey primary on February 5 before launching his own bid to win the June Senate primary.
We share the same dedication to honor the United States Constitution, which calls for limited federal government, as well as the Founders' commitment to protect Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The United States Senate could use a little more Life, Liberty and certainly some more Happiness – and that is what I intend to provide," Sabrin said in an e-mail to potential supporters.
Sabrin says he and Paul have been friends since they first met in 1982 at a monetary conference sponsored by the CATO Institute. Sabrin credits Paul for "harmonizing a strong defense of the pro-life position with the limited government principles."
