EDISON - State Sen. Bob Gordon (D-38th District) is keeping his seat in Bergen County.

Gordon beat out John Driscoll Jr., a Republican backed by Gov. Chris Christie.

Gordon believes a number of factors lead to his win. "I think we had a message that resonated with the public," Gordon says. "I had a record to run on and we had a tremendous amount of support."

Gordon has been in the Legislature since 2004.
