Newark Mayor Cory Booker will be the newest Senator for the state of New Jersey.
The Associated Press declared Booker the winner around 9:30pm Wednesday night.
With 85 percent of precincts reporting, Booker had 55 percent of the vote to Lonegan's 44 percent.
Booker, a Democrat, faced Republican Steve Lonegan in a Special Election race to fill the seat of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg.
Lautenberg died in June.
Booker has built a national following for his consensus-building and his personal story. He was a suburbanite who went to Stanford and Yale Law before moving into a tough Newark neighborhood promising to do good before he ran for office. He's also been a pioneering politician on Twitter.
Lonegan is a conservative former mayor of the town of Bogota. He dismissed Booker as more connected to Hollywood and the Silicon Valley than New Jersey.
