Straight Talk with Joe Rullo: New Jersey Senate Race Too Close Too Call, Too Far To Go

TOMS RIVER, NJ – TodayI go inside the complicated and arduous vote by mail primary 2020 process. Declaring early victories is very very disrespectful to all the Republican voters in the primary. We should let the voters speak after the results are calculated as Hirsh Singh is doing. Even media sources who never reported Hirsh Singh ahead the first 2 days were so quick to report a vote change now favoring the establishment pick. It’s so far from over that’s why no media source has guts to call a winner for 2 days now.

With just over half the votes counted and many left outstanding at the Jersey Shore, Mehta’s early celebration could be the “Dewey Defeats Truman” of our time, at least locally.

Thank you to all my supporters who worked so hard to elect Hirsh Singh in GOP primary to remove Cory Booker from politics. We will not know who the winner is most likely until July 22nd. This will be when all ballots are counted for those who voted in person. Many mail in ballots coming in until next Tuesday deadline will not even be counted until that Wednesday. Hirsh has almost 80% of the vote in 4 of the most Republican counties and if this trend continues in combination of even more new ballots to count numbers will change significantly. Nobody has any idea of how many people actually voted until all mail in ballots are received, so how can you even figure out mathematically. The universe of voters is not constant. Its variable. We have no idea what the outcome will be. This is the reason why myself and Hirsh Singh disagreed with Rik Mehta team about Vote by mail ballots which they support. We opposed vote by mail from the beginning and wanted voters to go to polls using voting machines. It is a complete disaster!Inside the complicated and arduous vote by mail primary 2020 process! Declaring early victories is very very disrespectful to all the Republican voters in primary. should let the voters speak after the results are calculated as Hirsh Singh is doing. Even media sources who never reported Hirsh Singh ahead the first 2 days were so quick to report a vote change now favoring the establishment pick. It's so far from over that's why no media source has guts to call winner for 2 days now!
