New Jersey Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli on Friday conceded the race to Gov. Phil Murphy (D) despite a tight margin of victory for Murphy.

The Hill reports:

Ciattarelli, a former state assemblyman, said his campaign had concluded that he could not overcome the nearly 3-point margin Murphy had after days of keeping an eye on the vote tally and insisting that it was too early to throw in the towel.

“And so I called Gov. Murphy earlier today and congratulated him on his reelection and wished him well in serving the people of New Jersey,” Ciattarelli said at a press conference Friday.

The announcement marks an end to what had been a stunningly tight gubernatorial election.

Polls had shown Murphy, who was first elected in 2017, with a comfortable lead, albeit one that had winnowed down to the mid- to high-single digits. As such, the race was on few operatives’ radars.

“I do not see the result of this election as a failure. On the contrary, I am proud of what our campaign accomplished, proud of how we helped reinvigorate the Republican Party and mobilize new people who had never been involved before,” he said.

So like the mail in ballot cheating in California on the the Newsom recall vote we now have the mail in ballot fraud seeing the Criminal Goveneor re-instated – after finding 20,000 misplaced ballots soley for him?
Now we see New Jersey’s enthusiastic GOP supporters saying “What just happened???.” this means we cannot possibly win seats in 2022 because the Dem m,acine wil just wait to see how many ballotts they neded to win and will frayudykebtky prduce what they want to ensure a fraudulent win.
Makes you wonder if Ciatarelli was bribed to not challenge the magic ballot’s.
