Giuliani On The Verge Of Announcing His Presidential Campaign, Says New York Lawmaker


Giuliani on the verge of announcing his Presidential campaign, says New York lawmakerFormer New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is seriously considering another run for the Presidency, according to Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.).

On May 23, King told The Washington Examiner that Giuliani has been quietly exploring campaign strategies for a potential White House bid. The former mayor unsuccessfully ran for the GOP nomination in 2008, which went to Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.).

King claimed that Giuliani has learned from his past political mishaps and is “very close” to announcing his candidacy for 2012.

“If he were to make the decision today, he would run,” said King, quoted by the media outlet.

A recent poll of New Hampshire voters revealed that Giuliani is among the favorites in the GOP field. The survey, which was conducted by WMUR and CNN, had Giuliani trailing former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

However, he led former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.), former United States Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman and former Senator Rick Santorum (R-Penn.).
