NJ Senate President Finally Concedes to GOP Truck Driver Who Humiliated Him in Huge Election Upset


Democratic New Jersey state Senate President Stephen Sweeney, cited a “red wave” on Wednesday when he conceded defeat to Republican outsider Edward Durr, a truck driver.

Durr was ahead in the race on election night earlier this month. The next day, Sweeney did not have a path to victory — but would not concede.

Wednesday, the Democrat cited a large turnout of Republican voters when letting go of the fight to keep his seat representing New Jersey’s 3rd legislative district.

“I of course accept the results. I want to congratulate Mr. Durr and wish him the best of luck,” Sweeney said when addressing reporters in Trenton, the Associated Press reported.

“It was a red wave,” he added.

The long-serving Democrat said he has not decided yet if he will challenge Durr in 2025.

“What the voters said in this election is New Jersey is a state filled with hardworking people who want to provide for their families and as leaders we need to speak directly to the concerns of all voters,” Sweeney said. “I plan to keep speaking to those concerns.”
