Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo gave his state of the county tonight amid all the finery of New Jersey’s most voter-rich Democratic county.

Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) was present, as was Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32); former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy, and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, all paying homage to the powerful executive.

But the line to end all lines went to Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver (D-34), the former speaker, who said that if DiVincenzo threw his hat into the presidential ring for the U.S. presidency, “we’d be on firm footing.”
