Murray Sabrin Successfully Submits Signatures Required to Appear on the Ballot in New Jersey as Libertarian Candidate for US Senate

Congratulations to Murray Sabrin who is the 2018 Libertarian candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from New Jersey.

Word is that he submitted well over double the number of signatures required to be listed on the ballot.

Sabrin is a hardcore libertarian and will bring the libertarian message across New Jersey, and because the incumbent is the hardcore crony Robert Menedez (D) that no one likes, Murray has a shot at being the first Libertarian Paty candidate to win a seat in Congress. It is a long shot but Democratic voters could be so fed up with Menedez that they might cast their vote for Sabrin.

The New Jersey political insider report Politifax is even starting to taking notice of Sabrin:
 Libertarian Murray Sabrin's take on all this is that the numbers -- the 38 percent of Democrats who voted for McCormick [against Menendez] and the 25 percent of Republicans who voted for Goldberg [agianst Republican primary winer the former Celgene CEO Bob Hugin] plus the 46 percent of respondents who were undecided in a recent FDU PublicMind Poll -- create an opening for him.
Of note, Lisa McCormick on the Democratic side got almost as many votes as Bob Hugin on the Republican side. If those votes don't go to Menendez, they sure aren't going to Hugin. Enter Murray.

And then there is the Republican anti-Trump side in NJ.

Politifax comments:
 Hugin will keep insisting that he'll put New Jersey first, but he'll have to live with the pictures of him sitting at Trump's side that have been a staple of cable news and will certainly find their way into Democratic ads. He'll also have to live with the appellation "Greedy drug company CEO."
Murray will be interviewed this evening at 8:00PM ET, on a broadcast that will be featured live on Facebook, here.



  1. Is he part of, or backed by, the Mises Caucus within the LP?

    1. This matters why? Caucus membership rarely has an effect on voters who are not part of internal party politics. I've never heard an outside voter say "what caucus is he/she part of"?
