Another phenomenon of today’s political campaigns is the opposition “tracker”—a person (usually a student or other young person) that follows a candidate’s opposition with a video camera waiting for a “I served in Vietnam” moment.
It seems the gubernatorial campaign of Ned Lamont has taken the tracker tactic to another level. Lennie Grimaldi, author of the popular blog, www.onlyinbridgeport.com , recounts an appearance in Bridgeport by Democratic party-endorsed candidate Dan Malloy. Malloy was in the city to tour Steel Point, a redevelopment site with great potential.
Lamont, of course, has the capacity to wheel out a barrel full of money for the best tracker money can buy. And Malloy, The Shad is sure, has his own people watching Lamont. It’s just in this case, it’s a little over the top; but what isn’t in this election cycle?
