The Women's Political Caucus of New Jersey today endorsed state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor.
So far, Buono is the only Democratic elected official in the race to challenge Republican Gov. Chris Christie.
"We are proud to announce that our Board met last night and unanimously voted to endorse Senator Barbara Buono for Governor," said Shari Weiner, chair of the WPCNJ Political Resources Committee. "Senator Buono has a long and distinguished career as an advocate for all New Jerseyans-women, men and their families. She is a highly-qualified, well-respected candidate who brings the added value of diversity."
The women's caucus cited Buono's public service record of more than 30 years, as a public defender for the State Department of the Public Advocate, Metuchen Town Council Member and Police Commissioner and later as New Jersey's first woman Senate Majority Leader.
Lisa Mizrahi Kaado, Executive Director of WPCNJ said, "In over 200 years, New Jersey has had only one female chief executive, and it is time for that to change. Senator Buono's experience, coupled with her fiercely independent nature make her an ideal candidate."
An affiliated chapter of the National Women's Political Caucus, the Women's Political Caucus is a multi-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women's participation in the political process and creating a women's political power base to achieve equality for all women.
The caucus helps recruit, train, and support pro-choice women candidates for elected and appointed offices at all levels of government.

"When you're asked to cast a vote on a bill and it seems innocuous, and it's got a hidden land mine that perhaps only an expert would see, it would sort of behoove those experts to tell us in advance rather than make us look, shall we say, a little bit indecisive later on." - Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25).- NJTV
