Monmouth County now has our first Democratic Senator in the 11th District--the first time in nearly 30 years, with former County Chairman Vin Gopal defeated his opponent by over 4,000 votes.

Gopal was also interviewed earlier this year by Mary Alice Williams of NJTV News. Click here to see the video and/or read the transcript.
