Monmouth Dems to formally back Buono for governor

Sources tell PolitickerNJ.com that Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal will join over 75 municipal chairs and elected officials from within the county this week to endorse state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor.

The endorsement is scheduled for this Thursday night.

Buono is the only declared candidate for governor among Democratic elected officials.

Jarred from her Senate majority leader post in 2011, Buono continues to grate the teeth of some establishment Democrats, according to sources, Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) among them.

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
