NJ truck driver Ed Durr on the verge of disrupting state Senate President, longtime Democratic leader

The chairman for New Jersey The Senate is in danger of a fantastically upset loss for his Republicans truck driver challenges.

Late. Steve Sweeney, a longtime leader of the Garden State Democrats, is following thousands of votes after Republican challenger Edward Durr.

Durr spent only $ 153 on his election campaign, according to campaign funding.

Durr, a truck driver by profession, is on the verge of a fantastic outburst over Sweeney, who is the longest-serving legislative leader in New Jersey’s history.

Should Durr win, it would upset the leadership of the Garden State Democratic Party.

“I’ve lived here all my life. I’ve been a commercial truck driver for the last 25 years. I consider myself a ‘blue collar,'” Durr said on his campaign website.

Republicans are winning out in Garden State as the race for the governor’s palace remains neck and neck between incumbent Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy and Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli, a former congressman.

The two governor campaigns were intense, with Murphy positioning himself as a progressive, while Ciattarelli tried to paint Murphy as out of touch and criticized Murphy’s COVID-19 response.

Both campaigns expressed optimism at the end of their election night parties, but neither side claimed victory in the race.

“We’re all sad that tonight may not yet be the celebration we wanted it to be,” Murphy said. “But when every vote is counted – and every vote will be counted – we hope to have a party.”

The race to get close to calling was generally seen as an easy win for the Democrats, but Tuesday’s progress in Virginia may provide a hint of how New Jersey is doing.
