Republicans’ latest victory is the ultimate underdog story.

The Associated Press has officially called a New Jersey state Senate race in favor of Republican Edward Durr, a commercial truck driver who spent less than $200 on his primary campaign. Durr has officially unseated New Jersey’s longest-serving state Democrat in a shocking race that captivated attention from across the country.

Fox News reports:

Durr took the election over the longest-serving legislative leader in state history and current New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney, a Democrat.

The underdog candidate captured national attention when it was revealed that he led Sweeney by thousands of votes going into Thursday despite only spending $153 on his primary campaign. Durr told Fox News he spent around $5,000 on his general election campaign.

This means that Durr’s win will upend New Jersey Democratic Party leadership as well as mark open season on the top spot in the Senate.

The Garden State Senate Democrats are already frozen in their newfound quest for leadership, with Sweeney postponing a Thursday meeting on Wednesday night.

The Associated Press called the race for Durr two days after Election Day.

I can see it now. Lefties will call him “durr-durr” while constitutional republic die-hards will label him “grr-durr.”
