NJ gubernatorial candidates enter homestretch

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s governor’s race is entering the homestretch.

Democrat Barbara Buono says she’s embracing her underdog status as she heads into the final sprint of her campaign against Gov. Chris Christie.

Buono began the push today with a radio interview on WWRL.

Buono says there’s “a sprint” to Tuesday’s election now that a special election for U.S. Senate has been decided. She criticized Christie for scheduling the Senate contest for mid-October.

Christie is slated to start a multi-day bus tour of the state with a stop in Livingston this morning. Christie and Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno are set to hit 90 towns during the tour.
