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.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
