Sacco and team kick off re-election campaign with Buono at their side

State Sen. Nick Sacco (D-32) welcomed presumptive Democratic nominee for governor Barbara Buono to Hudson this week for Sacco’s campaign kickoff.

One of Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s favorite targets as a triple dipper, the veteran Sacco embraced Buono at Schuetzen Park Banquet Hall in North Bergen in front of a bulked-up crowd of Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO) regulars and rank and file Saccoites.

Sacco’s running mates, Assemblyman Vincent Prieto (D-32) and Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez (D-32), likewise officially began their re-election campaign beside Sacco.

HCDO Chairman Mark Smith introduced Buono.

Others in attendance included U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-8), Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari, Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, Bergen County Democratic Chairman Lou Stellato, State Sen. Sandra Cunningham (D-31) and Assemblyman Charles Mainor (D-31).
