Monmouth County Democratic Committee Chairman Vin Gopal will back the home county congressman in the Democratic Primary for New Jersey's vacant U.S. Senate seat.
"I am proud to endorse Congressman Frank Pallone for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in August's special election for the seat previously held by the late Senator Frank Lautenberg," said Gopal in a statement. "In consultation with Democratic Mayors and elected officials across the county, from Marlboro to Belmar, the overwhelming majority of our Democratic elected officials are supporting their home county Congressman, in Frank Pallone. Congressman Pallone has been a tireless advocate for families across Monmouth County. During his 23 years in the U.S. Congress, Frank Pallone has been New Jersey’s strongest voice for protecting and preserving all 127 miles of the Jersey Shore from Cape May to Sandy Hook."
Gopal said Pallone has championed worker’s rights, environmental rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights and other progressive causes important to Democrats.
"In consultation with my executive board, we will proudly designate the Monmouth County Democrats slogan to Congressman Frank Pallone, our next U. S. Senator," Gopal said.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
