New Jersey Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono may not have formally announced a gubernatorial bid yet -- but she is looking to hire a campaign manager, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. The Star-Ledger:
Newark Mayor Cory Booker would presumably be the Democratic frontrunner for the nomination to face GOP Gov. Chris Christie in 2013, but he is still weighing whether to run and is expected to decide this month.
Meanwhile, a Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll released Tuesday shows Christie looking in great shape heading into his reelection bid: 69 percent of registered voters approve of the job he's doing, while 22 percent disapprove. And 61 percent say he deserves a second term.
