The long-serving president of the New Jersey Senate, Democrat Steve Sweeney, is refusing to concede to a GOP truck driver who reports claimed spent around $150 on his campaign and who has been declared the winner by various media outlets.
Edward Durr, a trucker who ran his improbable, low-dollar campaign to defeat Sweeney, the latter of whom served 20 years in the state Senate and the last decade as its president has already accepted that he won. But according to Sweeney, thousands of ballots have now been ‘discovered’ in one county.
“The results from Tuesday’s election continue to come in, for instance, there were 12,000 ballots recently found in one county,” Sweeney said in a statement. “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.”
