Excerpts from this hours-old report :
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor and hero of 9/11, is “very close to running” for president in 2012, according to a long-time friend who is one of his closest allies on Capitol Hill.For an article from a news source closer to home, check out Fox News.
I was at a dinner hosted by the American Spectator for two dozen or so journalists in Washington last night. The speaker was Representative Peter King of New York, who said that he had recently met “one of Giuliani’s closest advisers” and discussed a 2012 bid for the White House.
“If he were making a decision today, he would run,” said King, who revealed that Giuliani had been “talking to people on the ground in New Hampshire” and was working behind the scenes to find out “who’s going to be available” for a campaign staff.
“Right now, I got the impression from the conversations he’s had, from the testing he’s done, he’s getting very close to running.”
