A Republican newcomer has officially unseated New Jersey’s second most powerful Democrat. New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney finally conceded the race to Republican Edward Durr on Wednesday.

The Daily Wire reports:

“It was a red wave,” Sweeney said at a Wednesday press conference when asked how Durr, a truck driver and political newcomer, beat the second most powerful politician in the state, according to the Associated Press.

“The results of Tuesday’s elections are in. All votes have been fairly counted and I, of course, accept the results. I want to congratulate Mr. Durr and wish him the best of luck,” Sweeney said while delivering prepared remarks. “The people of the third legislative district are the best of New Jersey. It has been an honor and privilege to represent them in the state Senate and to serve as the president of the state Senate.”

“What voters said in this election, New Jersey is a state filled with hard-working people who want to be able to provide for their families. As leaders, we need to speak directly to the concerns of all voters. I plan to keep speaking to those concerns. I plan to remain fully involved in public affairs in New Jersey,” he added.

Durr spent relatively little on his campaign, just $2,300, according to an election document cited by the Associated Press. Sweeney spent roughly $305,000 in his loss to the Republican trucker.

Sweeney’s loss is a major upset to New Jersey Democrats who also nearly lost the gubernatorial election to a Republican.

Does anybody believe for one minute that Ciattarelli really lost?
Good people simply refuse to believe that there are so many who don’t think twice about cheating to get what they want.

Murphy implemented new voting machines just in time. Ciattarelli needs to sue for a forensic audit.

The Democrat Political Party has completely lost its way. They are now more socialist/communist than democratic capitalists.

Now all we need is for Ciattarelli to sue for a forensic audit where the thousands of votes were dumped to put Murphy ahead. BTW, one of the Precincts was Republican. If you think a Republican would vote Murphy over Ciattarelli I have some underwater real estate to sell you.
