Republicans had some big wins on Tuesday, and one of them came in the state of New Jersey.
No, unfortunately, it was not the governor’s race, but it was a big win.
A longtime Democrat incumbent serving as the President of the New Jersey Senate was ousted by a truck driver who spent a reported $153 on his campaign.
The Message Was Loud
New Jersey is a state that has been rocked by the Democrat chokehold.
Governor Murphy bought into mandates and lockdowns from the outset, crushing many businesses in the process.
Murphy, who had a double-digit lead in polls as little as two weeks ago, was in a neck-and-neck battle that was decided by less than 40,000 votes.
Another race, however, was a complete upset and major win for the GOP.
State Senator Steve Sweeney has been in office for two decades, serving as the President of the NJ State Senate since 2010.
A truck driver, Edward Durr, entered the race as a Republican, spent $153 on his campaign, and beat him…

NorthJersey.com has finally posted that 100 percent of the votes have been counted, with Durr winning 52 percent (32,497) to Sweeney’s 48 percent (30,268).
Now, I am sure that vote total will change just a bit, as I have already seen different numbers being reported on different sites, but there is no doubt Burr won.
This was but one of many local elections where the GOP was able to infiltrate blue states in elections most Democrats believed were going to be walkover contests.
Change is coming, folks, only it is not the change Joe Biden was hoping for and surely not what Democrats were expected only one year into his term.
