(DailyVantage.com) – Tuesday, November 2, was a great day for Republicans. Glenn Youngkin (R) beat out Terry McAuliffe (D) in Virginia, Winsome Sears (R) made history in the state, and Texas flipped Red in a district Democrats thought they had on lock. New Jersey also held a gubernatorial race, and at the end of the day, the margin between Phil Murphy (D) and challenger Jack Ciattarelli (R) was razor-thin. The Republican refuses to give up, though.
At the close of election day, a margin of less than 1% separated Murphy and Ciattarelli. Still, the Associated Press called the race in favor of incumbent Murphy, a move Ciattarelli called “premature.”
No one should declare “victory” or concede they lost the election until election officials count “every legal vote,” he stated.

As seen in the above clip, Ciattarelli has the patience to see the count through. However, it’s unlikely the pollsters will finish counting the remaining ballots until later this week, mainly because the state accepted mail-in ballots until the close of business on November 8. As of the time of writing, Murphy led 50.9% to 48.3%.
Should the election end in Murphy’s favor, Ciattarelli has the right to sue for a recount, which means the results may not be official for a few weeks. However, he’s determined to see this through to the end to ensure a “legal and fair” outcome.
