Buono Tells NJ: It’s BWOH’-noh, Not Bono In New Ad

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -

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.
