"If voters had any doubt about how out of touch Steve Lonegan’s values are with the values of most New Jerseyans, Sarah Palin’s endorsement puts that to rest. Like Mr. Lonegan, she wants to ban abortions, even in cases of rape and incest, doesn’t believe in climate change and opposes common sense measures to make our streets safer, like expanded background checks for gun purchases," Alvarez said.

Though Booker's lead in the polls has narrowed in recent weeks, he's still ahead of Lonegan by more than 10 points. 

The Booker campaign's press release on Palin's Lonegan endorsement featured a graphic showing past statements made by Palin and Lonegan and encouraging readers to attempt to "match up the tea party luminary with his or her quote." View the graphic below.
