State Sen. Barbara Buono
Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Democratic New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono have teamed up to urge state lawmakers to pass gun control legislation.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie continues to ride a wave of strong support as he held his 102nd town hall meeting Tuesday.
In launching her bid for governor Saturday, New Jersey Democratic State Sen. Barbara Buono told constituents she would fix what she called the mistakes of Republican incumbent Gov. Chris Christie.
He said he’ll support the Democratic nominee, whoever it is, and that he’ll seek re-election to the state Senate.
Christie’s campaign says the Facebook founder will host a fundraiser for Christie next month at his home in Palo Alto, Calif.
Buono says her campaign has raised nearly $250,000 for the shortened quarter.
Buono, who has served in the Legislature since 1994, said the governor was right to declare the rebuilding of the state from Superstorm Sandy an urgent priority, but she said “that’s not the only rebuilding that needs to be done.”
