Here we go again…
A powerful New Jersey state Senate member lost his election.
He has refused to concede, and now we know why.
After losing to a man who spent a whopping $153 on his campaign, the New Jersey Democrat now claims 12,000 ballots were “recently found,” so he refuses to concede the race.
New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney suffered a crushing blow on Tuesday night.
Edward Durr, a truck driver who only spent $153 on his total campaign, was leading in the election.
The race was so close, it was not officially called until Thursday morning, with Durr holding about a 2,000-vote advantage.
This race was one of the more shocking outcomes of the entire election.
Well, now it may not be over quite just yet.
According to Sweeney, 12,000 votes were conveniently found after the race was called, but Sweeney swears up and down they are all legit.
So, his office is refusing to concede the race until these votes are counted.
Sweeney explained, “The results from Tuesday’s election continue to come in, for instance, there were 12,000 ballots recently found in one county.
“While I am currently trailing in the race, we want to make sure every vote is counted.
“Our voters deserve that, and we will wait for the final results.”
It is probably a safe assumption that county is a blue-heavy county.
The New Jersey election was a prime example of why we need better election integrity laws, as it was ripe with problems.
For instance, a journalist being permitted to vote as a non-citizen, machines not working properly, machines being impounded, and yes, “found” ballots well after the race was over.
Rest assured, if this election somehow flips in favor of Sweeney with these “found” ballots, conservatives will lose their minds, and rightfully so.
