2012 Connecticut U.S. Senate Candidate Peter Lumaj (R) Endorses Fifth Congressional Candidate Mark Greenberg
Connecticut Republican Peter Lumaj who sought his party’s nomination at the State Convention this May for the U.S. Senate has endorsed candidate Mark Greenberg, a fellow conservative running for the Unites States Congress. Four Republican’s are competing in the August 14th primary for the opportunity to be on the November ballot. Lumaj made his endorsement in the town of Brookfield at a Greenberg event.
“I am not afraid to support him 100% because I know when he goes to Washington D.C. he believes in conservative principles, conservative convictions and conservative values. He believes just like I do in God, family and country,” Lumaj told supporters.
“As a businessman, we know that Mark Greenberg can create jobs, can create the environment to create jobs and will fight for liberty and freedom instead of larger and more powerful government,” Lumaj said.
“What we have seen over the past four years is destroying our country.” Referring to his escape from communist Albania to find freedom here, Lumaj continued, “I have seen socialism myself. Eastern Europe is trying to move away from socialist principles. Yet the United States of America, a Republic like ours, is embracing those principles. We cannot tolerate this. Unless we get conservatives elected like Mark Greenberg to push back this socialist agenda in Washington D.C., our children and grandchildren will one day ask us what did you do to save the United States when you had a chance?”
Greenberg said, “I am honored to receive the endorsement of my fellow Republican Peter Lumaj, who is a true conservative. We both strongly agree on the vital issues facing America’s future. It is important Connecticut voters vote for conservative candidates like me to get our country back on the right track.”
If elected, Greenberg will fight to reduce our country’s debt, cut wasteful spending, eliminate the death tax, repeal Obamacare and protect Israel. Greenberg will also cut business taxes from 35% to 15% to keep jobs here in America and end corporate bailouts. The congressional candidate will also not accept a pension.
