Your Gubernatorial New Media Update

by Philip Baruth

The Markowitz campaign has released a very stylish, long-format campaign video (long in the sense of over 5 minutes), and it’s well worth a look. Why? Always worth seeing how a potential Governor frames him or herself, as well as the issues at hand. But for a novelist like VDB, there’s a better reason: the story of Markowitz actually finding a baby abandoned in the forest. A real, newborn infant. No doubt somewhere in the past we’d heard that tale, but never told in its entirety. Politics aside, it’s just gripping story.
