SEA BRIGHT - In response to Democrat Mayor Dina Long's support for Gov. Chris Christie, state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) issued a statement emphasizing her belief that Christie is the wrong choice for New Jersey.
"I respect the right of politicians to endorse whomever they choose, for whatever reason they choose," Buono said. "All I can tell you is what I stand for: a real minimum wage increase; not raising taxes on the working poor; an unemployment rate that isn't two points higher than the nation's; gun safety and marriage equality and pay equity and a woman's right to choose. And on all of those issues, Governor Christie is on the wrong side."
The shorefront Long today backed Christie on the strength of what she identified as his leadership in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
