NJ going a little bit purple? Republicans gain seats in Assembly, win special Senate election in ‘Murphy midterms’

Looks as if NJ may have turned a bit purple.  The Republicans picked up five seats in the house ( if this holds up ) and one Senate seat in a special election.  Also three seats the Democrats targeted remained in control of the Republicans.  Now the Republicans spent around 3 million statewide.  The Democrats spent over 13 million.

In closing, this from Journalist Colleen O’Dea.

Republicans had called this election a referendum on the first two years of the Murphy administration, complaining the governor is too liberal and attacking in particular his pro-immigrant policies and cuts in school aid to wealthy districts. Gov. Phil Murphy had embraced the challenge.
