A New York Times columnist boasting decades of experience with words is now trying to convince his state that he can put them into action.
On Thursday, the New York Times announced that Nicholas Kristof, a senior columnist in the newspaper’s opinion section, would be stepping down from his role at the paper to pursue a run for Oregon governor. Kristof, 62, has worked at the New York Times for 37 years. Initially starting as a reporter, Kristof would later become an associate managing editor and started his column in 2001.
