New Jersey has spoken. And that signifies that a truck driver is now the state’s Senate president.
Per The Associated Press, Republican Edward Durr has defeated Democrat Steve Sweeney in New Jersey’s third Legislative District. Sweeney’s time as state Senate president involves an finish after almost 11 years within the place. He goes right down to Durr, who spent simply $153 on his marketing campaign.
Durr’s win is a significant upset, as Sweeney is the longest-serving legislative chief in New Jersey’s historical past. Sweeney’s ultra-progressive agenda couldn’t overcome Durr, who has remarkably discovered himself in a outstanding seat in workplace.
Durr, 58, is a staunch conservative. He campaigned underneath such values that the second modification needs to be defended and decreasing property taxes. That the Democratic celebration let a truck driver who doesn’t think about himself a politician win reveals how out of contact the celebration is.
In an unique interview with Breitbart on Wednesday, Durr defined his marketing campaign technique to make sure that he might defeat Sweeney.
“I walked three to four hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Saturdays and Sundays, I walked six to eight hours,” Durr mentioned. “We normally had half a dozen volunteers. One time we went out and we had twelve to 13 exit with us.
“Trust me, plenty days I did not feel like walking. It was too hot, my ankles and my feet hurt — I’m not a young man anymore, and I have gout, and plantar fasciitis — it was a hard thing. But it was well worth it, because it allowed me the opportunity to talk to every person I could possibly talk to, and understand what they were feeling, and get the pulse.”
