(TruthandLiberty.com) – While Americans fixated on the shocking Republican victories in Virginia that saw the governor’s mansion, lieutenant governor, attorney general and statehouse flip red, deep blue New Jersey was proving the southern state wasn’t an anomaly. Democratic New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy barely defeated former Republican state lawmaker Jack Ciattarelli by less than 1%. The nail-biter proved Republicans in deep blue states have staying power as citizen concerns over Critical Race Theory in education persist, President Biden’s approval ratings continue to collapse, and economic struggles take center stage.

For much of Tuesday evening, November 2, into Wednesday morning, Ciattarelli led Murphy. With 83% of the votes counted, the Republican challenger led the incumbent by 42,000 votes. Bergen County reported officials counted 100% of the vote at that time, with Ciattarelli earning 52% of the vote. Then, at 1:54 am, 40,000 ballots for Murphy showed up out of thin air. It cut Ciattareli’s 42,000 lead to 1,600. Ultimately, the media declared the governor the winner of the election with a 20,000-vote advantage.
Election officials aren’t saying what happened. Was it a glitch or anomaly, or did something else contribute to reporting change? Republicans expressed outrage and demanded an immediate audit. Ciattarelli had not conceded as of noon on Friday, November 5.
