STATE – Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono will have her first chance to face Republican Gov. Chris Christie tonight when they debate at William Paterson University.
WCBS Channel 2 will televise the debate, which begins at 7 p.m.
The debate is an important opportunity for Buono to make voters aware of her positions. While 42 percent of voters said that this year’s gubernatorial campaign has done a bad job of talking about important issues affecting New Jersey, nearly a third still don’t know enough about Buono to have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of her, according to a Monmouth University Poll that came out last week.
The two candidates will debate again on Oct. 15 at Montclair State University.
