Republican Ed Durr will defeat Democratic state Sen. Steve Sweeney, the Senate president, in New Jersey’s state Senate district 3, CNN projects.

Durr spent two decades as a commercial truck driver and decided to run against Sweeney when he was denied a concealed carry permit for a gun, CNN previously reported.

Sweeney, the longest-tenured state Senate leader in New Jersey history, had been considered the favorite to win the South Jersey seat he had held since 2004.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
