Back in February of 2013, Governor Chris Christie said that Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal practices “the politics of yesterday.”
Gopal had issued a statement threatening Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long with “the restructuring of the Democratic Party in Sea Bright, to ensure that the true voice of Democrats is one that prevails” in response to the news that Long was endorsing Christie’s reelection as governor.
Long has since left the Democratic Party and is running unopposed, as an Independent, for another term as Sea Bright’s mayor. But that is another story.
Since Christie accused Gopal of practicing the politics of yesterday, it has become very clear that Christie was and is practicing politics with an eye towards a future office. Gopal seems to be doing the same.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth Democrats, NJ Democrats, Vin Gopal | Tags: Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, Chris Christie, Dina Long, Hudson Democrats, Monmouth County Democrats, Monmouth Dems, Vin Gopal | 7 Comments »
