Alieta Eck Will Be On Ballot — Political newcomer, Dr. Alieta Eck, submitted nearly 2400 signatures to qualify as a Republican candidate for the US Senate in the New Jersey race to replace the late Frank Lautenberg, reports Don Adams of the Independence Hall Tea Party PAC.
The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC, along with the Bayshore Tea Party, assisted other conservatives in this effort, Adams said.
While Alieta Eck has not received the media attention that her primary opponent, Steve Lonegan, has generated, she will be a force with which to reckon, Adams said.
“The inherent problem with the almost perennial candidate, Mr. Lonegon, isn’t just his inability to win a statewide primary battle . . . , it’s his baggage and negative tone–which almost guarantees he will lose the general election,” Adams said.
He noted that polls already show Mr. Lonegon badly trailing the likely Democrat Senate candidate.
Alieta Eck, on the other hand, is the real conservative deal, he said. She practices her conservatism by living it–founding the amazing all-volunteer Zarephath Health Center which provides free healthcare services for the less fortunate.
“Dr. Eck has also fought valiantly against ObamaCare–organizing and leading the medical community in opposition efforts. And in so doing, she, unlike Mr. Lonegon, has not been handsomely paid by Americans for Prosperity. Again, she has volunteered her time and expertise,” Adams said.
Adams said that Dr. Eck if nominated, will put a positive, optimistic face on conservatism. Under the right circumstances, she could, conceivably, pull off a political upset.
He said, however, that Mr. Lonegon is a probable general election loser whose unappealing, negative messaging will drive away independents and set back the conservative cause for years to come.
