Former New Jersey Gov. Brendan Byrne (D) told the Newark Star Ledger that Barbara Buono (D) should consider dropping her challenge to Gov. Chris Christie (R).
Said Byrne: “Buono is way behind. I was way behind in 1977 and I was thinking, if it gets worse, I’m going to withdraw. It didn’t get worse. As a matter fact, it got better. But at one point I thought of dropping out in favor of a better-positioned candidate. I don’t know whether that consideration would appeal to Buono, but I would advise she make that evaluation.”
