Bonus: He Won

How a truck driver spent $153 on his N.J. election campaign to likely dethrone a political kingpin - nj.com

Bad day for Clueless Joe. Fortunately for him, he’ll have forgotten it by tomorrow.

Sweeney, a Democrat, is the longest-tenured Senate president in New Jersey history, having held the post since 2010. He was expected to serve a seventh term in the position before launching a possible bid for governor in 2025.

That was before he was taken on by a no-name challenger in Durr, 58, who has miraculously knocked Sweeney on his heels in a race that was never considered more than an afterthought.

“I joked with people and I said, ‘I’m going to shock the world, I’m going to beat this man,’” Durr said Wednesday afternoon. “I was saying it, but really kind of joking. Because what chance did a person like me really stand against this man? He’s literally the second-most powerful person in the state of New Jersey.”

To be fair. the $153 he spent was on his primary campaign. I am guessing he spent more on the general, and got assistance from the state and possibly even the national Party.
