Name recognition is a problem plaguing the Democrat who wants to challenge New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in November.
So Sen. Barbara Buono, the candidate with the often-mispronounced name, has a new ad telling voters who she is … and is not. It’s not Boh-NOH’, nor is it Bono (BON’-oh), but it does rhyme with Cuomo, the Democrat governor of New York.
Leading by nearly 40 points, Christie has released two commercials, one positive and one negative, while a Democratic Super-PAC has been running anti-Christie ads.
Neither Christie nor Buono faces a serious threat in the June 4 primary.
