Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-23) on Monday, September 26th
at a noon press conference on the steps of the New Jersey State House,

that a tireless proponent of these values is stepping forward to
endorse Ron Paul, the nation’s undisputed champion of personal and
economic freedom,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse
Said Sen. Doherty:
“Now more than ever, the United States needs a leader who respects
the Constitution and who will return liberty and prosperity to the
“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
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.”
