Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released a statement of support for state Sen. Barbara Buono's (D-18) gubernatorial candidacy.
"Barbara Buono is the right choice to move New Jersey's middle-class families and small businesses forward from the failed policies of the past," said the DNC Chair. "As a powerful, independent voice who has always put everyday Garden Staters first, she has both the experience and the toughness needed to turn New Jersey's economy around and get the state back on track. I am proud to see Barbara announce that she will be running to bring real leadership to the Garden State -- because that is exactly what the state needs."
