Some say Vin Gopal, a New Jersey State Senator out of Monmouth County who wields much power within both the Democrat and Republican parties in New Jersey is danger close to losing his bid for re-election to Republican challenger Lori Annetta. Annetta leads Gopal with 95% of votes tallied 31,754 to 31,264.
Gopal, many feel is being groomed by the party to run for Governor in 2025, but he has to get through Election Day 2021 to get there.
Last year, Gopal was hired by Toms River Mayor Mo Hill to serve as the Republican majority town’s communications public information officer.
Depending upon the remaining 5 out of 160 districts left to be counted, this one could be another election that might have to wait until the last of the late mail-in ballots arrive.
