Pallone joins Buono at shore fundraiser

Bucked up by a poll today showing her deficit down to 20 from 30 points, the allies of Democratic nominee for Gov. Barbara Buono gathered this evening for a fundraiser at the shore house of Somerset County Democratic Committee Chair Peg Schaffer.

Attendees included U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6), Assemblywoman Shavonda Sumter (D-35), Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal,  Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, and others in what a source told PolitickerNJ.com was a larger than anticipated crowd.

During her remarks to supporters, Buono lit into powerful Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo, a Democrat who backs the re-election of Gov. Chris Christie.

Buono said Christie can have him.
