Christie, Buono Win NJ Gubernatorial Primaries

Tuesday, 04 Jun 2013 09:41 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and state Sen. Barbara Buono are headed for a showdown in November's general election.

Christie brushed aside a token challenge in the Republican gubernatorial primary and Buono likewise won easily on the Democratic side Tuesday night.

Christie has sought to build bipartisan appeal as he looks to score a blowout win in November, which could set him up for a presidential run in 2016.

Buono, meanwhile, has looked to cast doubt on Christie's claims the state's economy has turned around, focusing attention on its continuing high unemployment and high property taxes.

Christie holds a big fundraising advantage while his popularity soared following Superstorm Sandy. He raised $6.5 million before the primary while Buono raised $2.3 million with the help of public campaign financing.
