Ajax Question

Adding "=" on ajax request body

I'm trying to send an ajax request but when i send the variable "newValue" which is a String the server alwasy gets the content plus a "=". So if i send "20.09.2009" the server gets "20.09.2009=". Why?
I cant get rid of this. Below is my code:
Do i have to send specific headers?

url: url,
dataType: 'json',
type: 'POST',
data: newValue,
success: function(data) {
if (data.perrorCode){//there is a validation error
this.setState({error: `Validation Error. Expected format: ${data.perrorMessage}. Got format: ${data.pvalue}`});
} else
error: function(xhr, status, err) {
console.error(url, status, err.toString());

If i print out the value right before, there is no "=".
If I use advanced Rest Client addon for google chrome and set the exact same thing, the server responds correctly as he gets only "20.09.2009"


As @Quentin suggested, I've added the attribute contentType: 'text/plain' and my problem was gone.
