Ron Paul to Receive Endorsement of New Jersey State Sen. Mike Doherty
Garden State's top conservative goes all in for Dr. Paul

Sept. 20, 2011, 3:16 p.m. EDT

LAKE JACKSON, Texas, Sep 20, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- 2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will receive the endorsement of New Jersey State Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-23) on Monday, September 26th at a noon press conference on the steps of the New Jersey State House, located in Trenton.

"We need a leader who will use our military only when it is absolutely necessary to defend the national security interests of the United States, and who will stop engaging our military in wasteful and unconstitutional nation building exercises.

"We need a leader who will stand up to the Federal Reserve to stop the destruction of the dollar, and to protect savers, retirees and the middle class. We need a leader who recognizes that there can be no liberty and freedom unless we respect private property rights.

"There is only one candidate for President who meets that description. His name is Ron Paul, and it is my great honor and privilege to endorse him for President of the United States."

Headline should read...West Point graduate/NJ State Senator

endorses Congressman Ron Paul for president.

Not to belittle his post military career, Dr. Paul needs the endorsement of successful military men and women. The ignorant mindset of most Republican primary voters is that Dr. Paul would let our enemies attack us.

The more military endorsements the better.

Thank you Senator Doherty!

US Rep Justin Amash endorses RP for President.

LAKE JACKSON, Texas, Sep 20, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced today that U.S. Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has endorsed Dr. Paul's candidacy for President of the United States.

Said Rep. Amash:

"No person in public office has done more to secure the liberty of the American people than Dr. Ron Paul.

"Time and again, Dr. Paul has been right, and the conventional wisdom has been wrong. For decades, he has warned about the dangers of deficit spending and government's reckless expansion of the money supply. He has warned about the unforeseen consequences of sending our troops into unnecessary wars. He has warned about sacrificing our freedoms for empty promises that government will protect us from harm.
