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."
Following Buono's kickoff yesterday at New Brunswick High School, at least two people asked PolitickerNJ.com to identify Buono's entrance song.
She walked out - to prolonged applause as she touched hands and hugged along the rope line in front of the stage - to Pat Benatar's "All Fired Up."

"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
