TRENTON – The Buono gubernatorial campaign is sounding an alarm for potential donors as an important reporting deadline nears.
Reminding supporters that “all gifts are being matched 2-1,” the campaign says in an email from manager Jonathan Ducote that “There never has been a more critical time to give.”
May 6, next Monday, is the reporting deadline for the campaign.
In four months, Sen. Barbara Buono has yet to crack $700,000 raised. She has been awarded $890,000 from the state matching funds program, which gives her $2 for every $1 raised and as of her last submission she was $1.3 million shy of the $2 million needed to secure the maximum state match.
According to state records, should she secure the Democratic nomination in June and not raise the remaining $1.3 million - two likely scenarios - she would be the first major party nominee not to hit the mark.
In addition, Buono continues to trail Gov. Chris Christie by substantial margins, and even some key Democratic leaders have shown lukewarm support.
Ducote’s plea for fundraising says the Buono campaign can succeed, but “not without urgent resources to get our message across.”

"It sounds like Councilman Baraka is talking about regionalization similar to what happened to the Camden Police Department. Clearly, if you regionalize, there is going to be a layoff of Newark workers. We cant afford to have more cops laid off right now. During Mr. Baraka's time on the council, the city laid off about 170 cops, when has led to our streets being much more dangerous than they need to be." - Newark Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries, the former state Assistant Attorney General, referring to the disbandment of the South Jersey police force.- PolitickerNJ.com
