Buono would have benefited from unified party, Cryan says

UNION – Fractures within the Democratic Party took a toll on Sen. Barbara Buono’s gubernatorial campaign, says Assemblyman Joe Cryan (D-20).

The North Jersey assemblyman told PolitickerNJ ahead of a Buono campaign event on the eve of Tuesday’s election that Democrats could have been in a better position to unseat popular Republican Gov. Chris Christie if they were on a unified front.

“A unified party would have certainly put us in a stronger position,” Cryan said, emphasizing Buono’s positive performance in the two gubernatorial debates as proof she has what it takes to pose a serious challenge to Christie.

Currently, polls put Christie as the favorite to win tomorrow night.
