GOP Newcomer on Edge to Oust New Jersey’s Dem Senate President

The GOP victories just keep coming.

In New Jersey, Republicans are anxiously waiting to see the final outcome of the gubernatorial election but it’s a state race that truly highlights how much trouble the Democrat Party is in. Republican newcomer Edward Durr, a commercial truck driver, is on the cusp of defeating New Jersey’s Senate President, one of that state’s most powerful politicians. The real kicker? Durr reportedly spent less than $200 on his campaign.

The Daily Wire reports:

Steve Sweeney (D-West Deptford) has been New Jersey’s state Senate President since 2010 and has served in the state Senate since 2002. With 99.37% of precincts reporting in New Jersey’s 3rd District, Sweeney trails Republican Edward Durr, a commercial truck driver who reportedly spent just $153 on his own campaign.

Durr’s low-key campaign and potential to oust Sweeney has shocked politicos, even if the race has received a fraction of the coverage as that of the gubernatorial election. The tightness of the race was so unexpected that the New Jersey Globe was forced to retract its article calling the race for Sweeney early in the night. The Globe initially reported within minutes of the polls closing that Sweeney, as well as Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Paulsboro) and Assemblyman Adam Taliaferro (D-Woolwich), won re-election. An update was added to the article at 1:11 a.m.:

Update: This race call was retracted at 1:11 a.m., after it became clear all three Democrats stood a strong chance of losing.

At the time of this writing, Burzichelli and Taliaferro are trailing their Republican challengers, realtor Beth Sawyer and EMT Bethanne McCarthy-Patrick.

Americans are sick and tired of Democrats control, and this race acts as a barometer for how midterms are likely to go.

They already tried. Election officials in Fairfax county VA tried to get the Governor(?) to change the voting rules. In Virginia mail in ballots must have the last four numbers of your social security number on the envelope. They wanted that rule dropped. The state legislature is the only source of voter change. The Republicans found out and now a judge is involved. We now know why DEMS want mail in ballots. No ID you can repeatedly use one envelope to vote several times.

The funny thing here is the dimwit nitwits are not listening. Their juggernaut of socialism/communism just keeps on rolling along in the DC cesspool. None of them are getting the message from the US citizens of this nation. It is small wonder that they recognize nothing but their own rhetoric. They assume they represent their constituents without really listening to anyone but themselves and their lemmings.

As they lie to their voters then casually ignore their promises made for votes. This is a lesson for the nation about dimwits. They lie, they steal and they cheat. And without their apparatus of crime to steal elections, they lose. And this has been going on for too long.

Time to strip this nation of dimwit nitwits and the rino nitwits was well. Clean up for the cesspool is coming. Flush the floaters now and try to drain it completely of all those nasty stinky floaters on both sides of the aisle!

Pay close attention to integrity in these elections and I pray that NY can do the same in firing the long time corruption from Schumer, Gillibrand and Nadar
