NJ senate president REFUSES to concede to trucker: Claims new ballots have suddenly appeared in race with Raymour and Flanagan driver who spent $153 on his campaign

A Republican truck driver who spent just $153 on his campaign and ran for office after he was denied a gun permit secured a stunning victory against the longest-serving legislative leader in New Jersey history in the state's elections - but the loser is disputing the results and claims more ballots were 'found' on Thursday.

The election was held on Tuesday but Associated Press only called the race today after 100 percent of precincts had reported.

Underdog GOP candidate Ed Durr delivered a humiliating defeat to Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney in South New Jersey's 3rd Legislative District by a razor thin margin of 52 percent of the vote to 48.

It's another embarrassing upset for the Democrats after they lost the Virginia gubernatorial election, struggled in the race for New Jersey governor and were swept by a red wave in Long Island, New York.

But two days after voters cast their ballots, Sweeney said the race still isn't over and he's not conceding. That's despite the Associated Press indicating that every precinct in the legislative district has already finished reporting.
