I didn’t beat him. We beat him,” Durr said on “福克斯新闻黄金时间” 周三晚. “The state of New Jersey, the people of New Jersey beat him. They listened to what I had to say and I listened to what they had to say, and it’s a repudiation of Governor Murphy [WHO] went and locked us down and ignored the people’s voice and senator Sweeney chose to do nothing for those 18 月,” 他说.

Durr reportedly spent under $ 5,000 在他的大选中. His campaign video was filmed on an iPhone by the nephew of a good friend, 他说.

His victory proves thatyou cannot tell people they can’t have a job. You can’t tell people they can’t go to church,” he told host Rachel Campos-Duffy. “And that’s what was done. And there was nothing done by the legislature, so this was the people’s voice being made heard clear.

Durr said he felt compelled to run against Sweeney over frustrations stemming from the state’s coronavirus response and lockdowns, which had a crippling impact on employment in the state.

Asked what he plans to do on his first day as Senate president, Durr said, “I really don’t know.

That’s the key factor. I don’t know what I don’t know, but I will learn what I need to know,” he vowed, “and I’m going to guarantee one thing. I will be the voice and people will hear me because if there is one thing people will learn about me, I got a big mouth and I don’t shut up when I want to be heard. I’m going to be heard.
