Roughly a decade ago, Dennis Connor asked himself a question: What if?
What if a man with lots of money and little political experience came along and said, “Hey, Washington is hopeless. They’re doing a lousy job.” What if that man said, “I can do better,” and ran for president?
And what if he won?
That was the foundation for Connor’s new novel, “The Syracuse Presidency,” a dark political satire that follows a man named Will Baumer, who decides to run for president and relocate the U.S. government to Syracuse.
