New Jersey’s state Senate President, Steve Sweeney, spent almost $500,000 on his re-election to be defeated by a Republican who spent less than $10,000 on his campaign. This is a monumental loss for Democrats, for it is showing that the same trend that elected Trump, anti-politicians, is alive and well. A truck driver for a furniture company, Edward Durr Jr., who describes himself as fiscally conservative and a 2nd Amendment rights advocate, beat the best Democrat spending less than $10,000 on his campaign. Looks like money no longer guarantees a victory for politicians. POPULISM strikes back!
