DENVER — Essex County Executive Joe DiVencenzo may have said last week that he would consider running for Governor if Gov. Corzine left office early or decided not to seek reelection, but since arriving for the convention he’s been assured that won’t be the case.
“There’s no question Jon is going to be running for reelection. He’s been working this delegation very, very well. He assured me that he’s going to be our candidate whether Obama wins our not. He’s not interested in going to Washington,” said DiVincenzo.
DiVincenzo, of course, said that Corzine will have his support next year.
‘I really think we need Jon to run for reelection because we’re going through some tough times. I think he’s done a great job at this particular time and we need to continue the things that he’s doing,” he said.
DiVincenzo chose not to speculate about 2013.
