Special (photo) ops

Vice President Joe Biden came to New Jersey this week for the ceremonial groundbreaking of a $31.5 million highway widening project — the first in the state to benefit from the $787 billion stimulus package.

Dozens of local union workers were invited to the groundbreaking of the project, which is expected to bring 500 new jobs to Route 46 in Lodi, including 250 engineering and construction jobs.

But a special moment came when Bergen County Sheriff Leo McGuire’s photographer caught a shot of Biden hugging McGuire (left) and Passaic County Sheriff Jerry Speziale.

Priceless.
