Jim Dean, National Chairman of Democracy for America, the nation’s largest grassroots political action committee, is getting involved in a New Jersey county chairman’s race.
Dean will be in Asbury Park on April 29 to speak to county committee members about supporting Vin Gopal’s candidacy. Dean’s brother, Howard Dean, is the founder of DFA and is a former Democratic National Committee chairman and 2004 Presidential candidate.
Gopal, a Long Branch businessman, is running against Marlboro Democratic Party Municipal Chairman Frank LaRocca in the June convention. The winner will succeed 23-year incumbent Victor Scudiery, who is retiring.
