    A former contestant on "The Apprentice" and Donald Trump campaign backer who got booted from the Republican Party ticket after video surfaced of him using a vulgarity toward a woman has lost a New Jersey election.

    Brian McDowell failed to win a spot on the two-person GOP slate in the southern New Jersey district on Tuesday.

    James Sauro and Robert Campbell won the two spots in the 1st Assembly District to square off against a pair of Democratic incumbents in November.

    The video is nine seconds long. McDowell can be seen using a vulgarity to tell a woman she should have sex with him.
