Rudy Giuliani: I’m Not Running In 2012
To nobody’s actual surprise, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he’s out for 2012:
In other news on doors shutting, Rudy Giuliani announced at a Long Island Association event just now that he’s not running for president.
Asked by the group’s president Ken Law about reports that he had sent messages to New Hampshire supporters to keep their powder dry, Giuliani joked that they must have gone missing, according to one attendee.
And he added definitively, “If it’s too late for Chris Christie, it’s too late for me.”
It had become clear that Giuliani was not planning to run again, as some of his former and closest supporters have started moving toward Mitt Romney.
I don’t think anyone actually expected Rudy to get in the race this time, mostly because it was unclear how he could possibly do any better than he did in 2008.
