Ed Durr is the Republican truck driver in New Jersey who shocked the world this month by running against an incumbent on a shoestring budget and winning.
Even though Ed Durr was declared the winner, the Democrat he beat refused to concede. Until now.
This means Ed Durr is really going to take this office, which is just amazing.

Longtime NJ Senate president concedes to GOP truck driver Ed Durr
New Jersey state Senate President Steve Sweeney conceded Wednesday to Republican candidate and commercial truck driver Edward Durr, who spent only $153 on his primary campaign.
“The results of Tuesday’s election are in, all votes have been fairly counted, and I, of course, accept the results,” Sweeney said during a press conference at the statehouse.
“I want to congratulate Mr. Durr and wish him the best of luck,” added Sweeney, who has served as New Jersey state Senate president since 2010.
When asked “what happened” to upend the race in the state’s 3rd Legislative District, Sweeney replied, “It was a red wave.”
Sweeney’s concession comes six days after The Associated Press called the race for Durr.
Durr, who drives a truck for a furniture company, attacked Sweeney during the campaign for not investigating nursing home deaths at the height of the pandemic.
Ed Durr is awesome. What an amazing story.
