Giuliani Won't Run For Office in 2010, New Yorkers Breathe Sighs of Relief

Rudy is expected to announce Tuesday that he's not running for governor, U.S. senator or any other office next year.

Phillip Anderson reports:

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani is expected to announce tomorrow that he's not running for governor, U.S. senator or any other office next year, the Daily News' David Saltonstall reports.

Instead, he's expected to declare that he's staying in the private sector for now and endorse fellow Republican Rick Lazio for governor.

As I wrote before, once he bowed out of the gubernatorial race, I never thought Rudy would engage in a year-long campaign to become (likely) 100th in seniority. Personally, I thought his rumor-mongering of running for weeks was aimed at (a) alleviating his own boredom (b) drumming up consulting business (c) done because he was upset at the diminishing number of daily Google News hits on his name (d) all of the above.
