Democrat Phil Murphy narrowly wins re-election as New Jersey governor

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy survived a closer-than-expected race to win a second term in New Jersey, NBC News projected Wednesday, offering more proof that Republicans are gaining ground in blue states as the 2022 midterm elections approach.

Murphy fended off a challenge from GOP nominee Jack Ciattarelli, a businessman and former state legislator who campaigned on lowering property taxes and relaxing Covid-19 restrictions. He is the state’s first Democratic governor to be re-elected in more than 40 years.

The thin margin — combined with Republican Glenn Youngkin’s victory in the Virginia governor’s race — indicates trouble for President Joe Biden and Democrats nationally, members of both parties said Wednesday. Biden and congressional Democrats have struggled to pass a legislative agenda. And the results in New Jersey and Virginia suggest that voters aren’t moved by broad-brush efforts to link all Republicans to former President Donald Trump.

“I was surprised, but not shocked,” former Sen. Robert Torricelli, D-N.J., told NBC News. “The Democratic Party in New Jersey, like the national party, has strayed at some distance from its base. These are the kinds of corrections that take place when a party strays from its base.”

**********************************************

This is another election where we go to bed with the Republican leading and then wake up to Democrats adding votes throughout the next day and eventually winning.  Trump's election, Georgia, California, and now New Jersey. This democrat that "won" reminds me of Mr. Burns.

Uh no, there are Republican districts just as large that got all the votes counted quickly, and didn't put it off until the next day to see how many votes were needed to win. It has become a pattern now and Democrats are adding votes again.

 

What has become a pattern is Retrumplicans who are bad losers and want to question the legitimacy of any election they lose.

Any election they win they are all smiles and there is never a question of vote rigging in their minds.

Most  of  the counties  in NJ  with a large population lean Democratic, so they  take longer to count  and come in  later.

Look out Jack, here  comes  Newark. Easy to comprehend  unless one  is  a right-wing sore loser.
