Congresswoman Grace Meng endorses Vin Gopal for NJ State Senate

Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY), Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has endorsed New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy and New Jersey State Senate candidates Christine Lui Chen and Vin Gopal. Gopal is of Indian descent.

“I am proud to endorse Phil Murphy, Christine Lui Chen and Vin Gopal,” said Meng. “All are exceptional candidates who will fight tirelessly for New Jersey’s hard-working middle-class families. I look forward to working with each of them to strengthen our economy, create jobs and ensure equal pay and affordable health care for all.”

Vin Gopal received the Democratic nod for the state’s 11th district.

"So honored to have Congresswoman Meng's support," said Vin Gopal. "The Congresswoman is one of the highest ranking women in our party and in Congress so her recognition of this very important race here in Monmouth County speaks volumes about our candidacy and how important it is to remove one of Chris Christie's closest allies from the State Legislature.”
