The hardworking staff has no idea what this two-page spread in yesterday’s New York Times is all about.
So we plugged John Haywood into the Googletron and here’s what popped up:
Haywood ran almost a dozen ads in the New Hampshire Sunday News during the 2012 Granite State presidential primary. Which got us to wondering: Is the Times spread a trial balloon for the 2016 race?
So we sent the following note to Mr. Haywood:
Dear Mr. Haywood,
I saw your two-page ad in yesterday’s New York Times and was impressed by 1) the amount of copy it contained and 2) the amount of money it must have cost. (I also wrote about it at www.campaignoutsider.com)
Just wondering: Is this a harbinger of a 2016 presidential run? The Times is a long way from the New Hampshire Sunday News, yeah?
Looking forward to your reply, I remain
John R. Carroll
We will, as always, keep you posted.
