TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Former Gov. Dick Codey is close to deciding whether to enter the New Jersey governor's race after a visit with national labor unions in Washington.

Two people close to the Essex County senator told The Associated Press that Codey returned satisfied the unions would back his candidacy, and that millions in donations would flow his way if he wins the Democratic primary. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about his deliberations.

A message left with the national AFL-CIO was not returned.

The two people close to Codey said he still has business and family concerns that could keep him from running.

Sen. Barbara Buono of Middlesex County has entered the race but the Democratic establishment believes a more well-known candidate could mount a stronger challenge to Gov. Chris Christie.
