Rudy Giuliani's Secret Presidential Campaign

Giulini's presidential bid in 2008 failed pretty terribly , as he was not elected in any state, but it seems the former NYC mayor may be dusting himself off  to try again. According to the Associated Press,who obtained the information from anonymous sources, he is quietly meeting with "veteran New Hampshire campaign strategists." The AP said:

"They said Giuliani's team is concerned that Texas Gov. Rick Perry's all-but-certain campaign could scoop up the few remaining top operatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state, where a host of candidates already have dozens of people on the payroll. One person described Giuliani's aides as having a sense of urgency."


"Those close to Giuliani say he hasn't yet decided whether to move forward with a campaign and that he would not make any political appearances in the days before or right after the impending 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. His widely praised leadership in the wake of the attacks earned him national prominence and the nickname, 'America's Mayor,' which helped fuel his presidential ambitions."
