Assemblyman Joe Cryan (D-20) tonight formally backed state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor.
Cryan was addressing the Women's Political Caucus of New Jersey in New Brunswick in receipt of that organization's "Good Guy" Award.
When Cryan announced his endorsement of Buono, the lone declared Democratic elected official in the race, he received a standing ovation.
Cryan's endorsement of Buono comes on the same day state Sen. Dick Codey (D-27) went to Washington, D.C. to sniff out his own gubernatorial donor prospects, and a week after Cryan's running mate state Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20) urged Codey to get in the race.
A former state party chairman and former Assembly majority leader, Cryan fell out of favor with Democratic Party power in 2011 at the same time as Buono.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
