Amid an uptick among some party members who would like to see state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) bestow the party chairmanship upon veteran Passaic County Democratic Committee Chair John Currie, a source close to Buono pushed back.

Buono is said to prefer Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell (D-31) for state party chair. Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) doesn’t favor O’Donnell and told Buono as much earlier this week.

But Buono is undeterred, the source told PolitickerNJ.com.

“She is no different from every past nominee who has been able to select their chair, and there is no reason why she should be treated any differently,” the source said. “This is about the money raised to the state committee and the Democratic Party in New Jersey deserves better than what’s happening now.

“With everything going on it reaffirms exactly why she would need her own choice as chair,” added the source.
