Booker endorses Buono for governor

Newark Mayor Cory Booker endorsed State Senator Barbara Buono for governor today via a written statement.

“I am honored to endorse Senator Barbara Buono for governor,” said Booker. “Senator Buono has been a leader in fighting for the interests of taxpayers in New Jersey. She understands what it takes to grow our economy while not giving up on those that need our help most. She has never shied away from taking on the special interests to do what’s right for the people of this state. I admire her tenacity in fighting to curb gun violence, expanding access to healthcare and working tirelessly to get New Jerseyans back to work. I am excited and committed to do whatever it takes to make sure Barbara Buono is our next Governor.”
