Tea party favorite Anna Little beat back Ernesto Cullari to win the Republican nomination Tuesday night, the New Jersey Star-Ledger reports.

Little, who had a difficult time winning the nomination earlier this year, garnered national attention and a boost in the polls after the tea party movement came out in support of her candidacy.

The race was close enough that PolitickerNJ (incorrectly) called the race for Cullari as recently as Monday.

Little will face U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6th) in what's expected to be an uphill battle this November. Little ran an unsuccessful campaign against Pallone in 2010.
