Republican New Jersey Senate candidate Steve Lonegan said Thursday he has a way to singlehandedly stop Obamacare and help the GOP emerge victorious in its shutdown standoff.

Lonegan's campaign issued a statement encouraging Republicans in Washington "not to capitulate to the president's unreasonable demands" until after Wednesday's special U.S. Senate election in New Jersey. According to Lonegan, he will win that race against Democratic Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker. That in turn will cause Obama to give in to the Republican demands to stop the health care law.

"When I win, Obama will fold," Lonegan said in the statement.

Lonegan has been gaining in recent polls, though Booker still has a double-digit lead. However, his statement said Lonegan believes "his internal polling shows a neck-and-neck race in the U.S. Senate contest and that all the momentum is in his favor."
