The Women's Political Caucus of New Jersey (WPCNJ) Political Action Committee, state Sen. Joseph Vitale (D-19) and Essex County Freeholder Brendan Gill will co-headline a South Orange fundraiser next month for Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18).

The WPCNJ and Vitale have already gotten publicly out in front for Buono.

The presence of Gill - the statewide director for U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) newly emergent in his role as an elected official - indicates another piece of the candidate's developing coalition.

Scheduled for the home of Patricia Bell, the fundraiser looks to raise $3,800 from "champion" Buono backers, $2,500 from "visionaries," $1,000 from "hosts," and $250 from "individuals."

State Sen. Bob Smith (D-17) is a visible early and enthusiastic supporter of Buono's. As the campaign takes shape, Team Buono also continues to rely on the political expertise of Assemblyman Joe Cryan (D-20), a former state party chairman who formally endorsed the senator last week.

"Potentially, we can get this done, because it's important. We get it. We understand it. But there are issues. There's the speedy trial component. How are we going to pay for this? How is the risk-assessment piece of it going to be done?" - Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32), on bail reform.
