Follow the real time Election Returns.
My guess is Booker wins by about 10%. It is NJ, after all. If Lonegan pulls this off, will be a significant upset.
(Excerpt) Read more at nj.com ...
The only way Lonegan wins is if he is ahead by at least 10 points..he will need that margin to ween out the dead people and illegals who are stuffing the ballot boxes for Booker right at this moment..for some reason dead people always seem to vote Dem
Am I reading it right? So far 52% to 46% S. Lonegan
55-44 Lonegan losing
Just a guess but Hudson County was heavy Democrat when I lived in NJ. They will report late to see how many votes are needed.
It just changed for Booker (now ahead)
This is a NJ Special Election, they don’t need dead people or illegals to vote in this one. Conservatives are heavily outnumbered here. Even a small turnout in the heavy urban areas can usually offset even the strongest turnouts in the South/Central and NW part of the state.
Yes, it changed already. Lonegan was ahead a few minutes ago something like 52% to 46% now almost reversed.
Sorry, I looked, didn’t see a thread in Breaking.
If this is duplicate, please delete.
I am just noticing Camden, Hudson, Essex counties are the only ones with any real turn out and they are all very Democrat. I presume that Booker wins by a comfortable margin but maybe there is hope.
Lonegan leads ESSEX?...that’s big news
There’s no way NJ elects a republican....
My theory is that the Republicans folded today because they knew Lonegan was going to win, and that the Tea Party would no longer be willing to take “no” for an answer.
Lived there too. You’re right about their strategy.
When I voted there rumor was the machines showed up with certain candidates ‘preloaded’ with votes.
Live Thread up since this morning. FYI
Everyone, please go to the other discussion already created below. I didn’t see this in the Breaking because I was looking at the top stories. Sorry for the confusion.
They Don’t really like Booker in Newark. The only reason they would vote for him is to get him out of town.
If nothing else make democrats spend lots of money to defend.
nothing in from Morris yet...Lonegan should do well there
I went to college in Hoboken and Hudson was notorious for machine politics. Jersey City, North Bergen, Union City and Hoboken were like 120% Democrat.
they will likely get 1 million vote turnout today ... but will they surpass 1.2 million?
Lonegan to lose by 90,000 ?
I lived north of there but still in Hudson.
911 answered the phone in Spanish in my old ‘hood.
Corrupt out the wazoo.
Total 448/6330 precincts reported
Booker 57% 65,435
Lonegan 42% 47,938
Looks like a done deal .
Thanks for the link. Agree with you 100%. If this wasn’t Special election, Booker wins by 15+. Like you said. N.J. /sigh
I still haven’t forgiven the NJ GOP for the Schundler debacle.
I see stupid white people.....we’re not the highest taxed state in the country for nothin.
That I don’t know about. I left the frying pan and jumped into the fire (IL) about 17 years ago.
Interesting.. So far, only 16,000 votes and 5% separate the two. Were it not for Essex, LonegN would be leading now.
NJ is losing.
America is losing.
Didn't the GOP nominate Democrat Tom Kean Jr. one year, too?
The GOP abandoned Schundler in his race for governor after their ‘pet’ failed to win the primary.
The sitting pubbie governor failed to endorse him.
Are some of our good counties yet to come in?
FWIW I voted 5pm in a Hunterdon district (GOP stronghold). The ladies at the poll said turnout was extremely heavy.....
WABC News reporting that AP has called the race for Booker. No further information.
NJ is rat state numero uno. They just retained control of that which they have completely owned.
Oh yeah... I remember DiFrancesco. He was mobbed up, wasn’t he?
If I recall, that’s why he didn’t run himself.
Oh yeah. His ‘pet’, Francks, didn’t win the primary. So donnie D took his ball and went home.
“The GOP abandoned Schundler in his race for governor after their pet failed to win the primary.”
That race was when I registered as a Republican (to help Schundler through the primary); I wanted to switch it back to “unaffiliated”, but figured I’d have to re-register the next time a real conservative ran in a primary anyway.
