Press packet at announcement Jon spelled John, candidate says (not in Chinese) that he's in NY but is in Jersey, camera is set to mostly show candidate and the base of Liberty not angling up at her aspiring but gets him back-dropped by a ferry the by-now universal image of impending disaster. It aint Mike Deaver at work here!
