Barbara Buono Gets Union Endorsement

Democrat Barbara Buono has received a major but expected union endorsement in the New Jersey governor’s race in a week where Gov. Chris Christie has received support from some high-profile Democrats.The New Jersey state AFL-CIO announced Wednesday that it supports Buono, in part, because she supports a minimum wage increase that Christie vetoed.

Union officials say Buono is the candidate who cares about ensuring quality education, good paying jobs and “economic opportunities to achieve a middle-class lifestyle.”

The minimum wage issue is now headed to a ballot referendum.

Christie on Tuesday received endorsements from several Democratic Essex County leaders, including County Executive Joe DiVincenzo.
