New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney, one of the most powerful elected officials in Jersey, finally conceded to Edward Durr, the Christian truck driver who only spent a few thousand dollars on his campaign.

Sweeney refused concede for more than a week after he was defeated in last Tuesday’s election claiming 12,000 ballots were “found” in one county.

On Wednesday, Democrat Sweeney finally conceded to Republican Durr, admitting there was a “red wave.”

CBS Philadelphia reported:

New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney, one of the most powerful elected officials in the state, conceded on Wednesday that he lost reelection to the state Senate.

Sweeney, a Democrat, lost to Republican political newcomer and commercial truck driver Edward Durr in southern New Jersey’s 3rd District.

“I of course accept the results. I want to congratulate Mr. Durr and wish him the best of luck,” Sweeney said during a speech at the statehouse complex Wednesday.

Sweeney’s loss to Durr, who spent at least $2,300 in the contest, shocked state officials and leaves the Democrats who control the Legislature searching for a new leader.

Sweeney said his loss by about 2,000 votes was the result of overwhelming GOP turnout in his suburban Philadelphia, politically split district.

“It was a red wave,” he said.
