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.

Following Buono's kickoff yesterday at New Brunswick High School, at least two people asked PolitickerNJ.com to identify Buono's entrance song.
