State Sen. Barbara Buono says women "know that it's time for a change in New Jersey."

Buono spoke Friday at a women's luncheon at the Democratic State Committee convention in Atlantic City.

Buono has no serious primary challenger. However, recent polls show her lagging behind Christie among female voters, name recognition and fundraising.
