Passaic County Democratic Committee Chairman John Currie had a small holiday party for his elected officials last night and a visitor arrived.
It was state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18), who on Tuesday launched her gubernatorial candidacy.
“I introduced her,” said Currie, who on the same day Buono kicked off spent time with Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who’s mulling his own bid.
A Democratic Primary candidate whose YouTube message included a much talked about anti-boss message, Buono worked the room and talked to electeds in a low-key event.
On the day after she launched her candidacy, Buono received the formal public endorsements of Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Peter Barnes, state Sen. Bob Smith (D-17), and Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-18).
