Rudy Giuliani possibly running for Governor of New York, thoughts?

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and a one-time contender for the Republican presidential nomination, may be eyeing a new political office: governor of New York state.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Giuliani, who was famously dubbed "America's mayor" in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, will decide in the next 30 to 60 days whether he has enough support to be elected to the post.

Weighing into his calculations, the Times reported, is the impact a return to public office would have on his business interests, including his lucrative speaking engagements, law firm and consulting business.

Giuliani has already said publicly he is open to running for governor.

  • The "noun, verb and 9/11" candidate? Rudy isn't a bad guy, but his platform and determination is sorely lacking.

  • I do not think he will win because he has bad blood with the firemen and policemen, because of 911.

  • He won't get it until he admits he never read the 9/11 commission report and acknowledges Ron Paul was right during their debate.

  • More power to him, don't live in NY, but think he would be good for it.
