NEWARK – State Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) said she’s not worried about lacking resources to face incumbent Republican Gov. Chris Christie.
To date, Buono has raised about $1.7 million, including $1 million from the state’s matching funds program. Christie, who is not participating in the matching funds program, has raised $6.2 million.
“I have no concerns,” Buono told veteran newsman Michael Aron, when asked if she worries about being branded the gubernatorial candidate with no money. Christie couldn’t match incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine in 2009, she reminded reporters.
“We will have enough to be competitive,” the candidate promised. “Soon you won’t be asking that question.”
