Murphy’s lead in all public polls, his moneyed appara- tus, his marquee endorsements and the advantage of having a million more registered Democrats than Repub- licans did not translate into a decisive victory Tuesday night — or even a projected one. Instead, it could be days or longer before a winner is declared, because the race was so close Wednesday and mail-in ballots had to be counted. Even if Murphy defeats challenger Jack Ciattarelli, the Jack Ciattarelli and Phil Murphy, shown above, are in a tight race for New Jersey Governor. USA TODAY Spotlight on surprisingly tight governor’s race Dustin Racioppi Trenton Bureau | USA TODAY NETWORK – NEW JERSEY See RACE, Page 5A ELECTION 2021 The quiet life ended early Wednes- day for Edward Durr, a truck driving Republican from Logan Township who appears to have unseated one of the state’s most powerful elected Demo- crats. Durr and GOP General Assembly running mates Bethanne McCarthy Patrick and Beth Sawyer, based on un- official final results Wednesday, have flipped the solidly “blue” Third Legis- lative District into the Republican col- umn. It has been two decades since a Re- publican represented the Third Dis- trict in the Senate or Assembly. Gener- ally, Democratic state Sen. Stephen M. Sweeney and Assemblymen John Bur- zichelli and Adam Taliaferro were re- garded as overseeing a safe district. Both sides are leery of conceding or proclaiming a victory for the moment. However, Durr holds a solid 2,000- vote margin in his race against See SEATS, Page 3A Dems Sweeney, Burzichelli, Taliaferro appear to lose seats Joseph P. Smith Vineland Daily Journal USA TODAY NETWORK – NEW JERSEY Democratic candidates running for Burlington County offices built a sub- stantial lead in races for two county commission seats and the county surro- gate as the vote count from Tuesday’s general election continued Wednesday. But Democratic state Sen. Dawn Ma- rie Addiego was trailing a GOP challeng- er in the 8th Legislative District as of Wednesday afternoon with almost all of the unofficial county vote tabulated. Addiego’s running mates also were lagging behind Republicans in contests for two open Assembly seats in the dis- trict. Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield was leading Addiego by 1,102 votes of nearly 60,000 counted. Stanfield, the former county sheriff, had harshly criticized Addiego for leav- ing the Republican Party two years ago. Addiego, a lawyer, became a Democrat after the GOP became more conserva- tive while Donald Trump was president.
