U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Bergen County Democratic Committee Chairman Lou Stellato, Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairman Mark Smith, and Passaic County Democratic Committee Chairman John Currie will back state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor this morning in a statement, sources say.
