Democrat Cory Booker Has Won The NJ Senate Election

People’s Pundit Daily has called the NJ Senate election for Democrat Cory Booker.

Running up big margins in Essex and Hudson counties propelled Cory Booker to victory. Atlantic County was a bit of a surprise, going for Booker by a larger margin than expected — at last count 51 – 47 percent — which is not typical for the bellwether county.

Monmouth County, an area Lonegan needed to win bigger than he did, saw a fairly decent turnout, but not enough. Lonegan carried the working class county by 10 percent, while Christie carried the county by roughly 30 percent.

Lonegan performed greater than expected in only one county — Ocean County — outperforming even Chris Christie.

Booker will bring the number of senators who caucus with Democrats to 55.

The seat held by longtime Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) has been occupied by an interim appointee, Sen. Jeff Chiesa (R), since shortly after Lautenberg’s death in June.
