Political career

Sabrin was the 1997 Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate in New Jersey, and the first third party candidate to receive matching funds and participate in three official debates.He garnered 5% of the vote, a factor which contributed to the near-defeat of incumbent Governor Christine Todd Whitman (who had previously been viewed as a rising star in the national GOP) by Democratic nominee Jim McGreevey. Sabrin left the Libertarian Party, and was a candidate for the Republican Party nomination for the United States Senate representing New Jersey where he faced Republican state Senator Joseph Pennacchio and former Republican Congressman Dick Zimmer.  Promoting limited government and nonintervention, he received endorsements from the Republican Liberty Caucus and U.S. Presidential candidate Ron Paul. He was defeated in the Republican primary, garnering 14% of the vote, behind Zimmer (46%)and Pennacchio (40%). He sought election to the same seat in 2014 before losing the Republican primary on June 3, 2014 to Jeff Bell.
