Governor Chris Christie now has a democratic challenger in his bid for re-election next year.

New Jersey State Senator Barbara Buono officially announced she’s running.

The Democrat criticized the tough-talking Republican.

She said Christie’s economic policies are slowing growth in the state.

The Christie campaign fired back, saying Buono’s past record contributed skyrocketing taxes and reckless spending.
