Draft Rudy Giuliani For President Begins Radio Ads in Key States
Committee To Encourage Former New York Mayor To Run For President In 2008 Airs First Ads In Iowa & New Hampshire
(Chicago, IL) One year after its formation, Draft Rudy Giuliani for President announced today that it has begun airing radio ads in Iowa and New Hampshire encouraging Mayor Giuliani to run for president in 2008.
"With the mid-term elections now over, Americans are already thinking about 2008," said Draft Rudy Giuliani spokesman, Allen Fore. "Mayor Giuliani has a demonstrated record of success and is exactly the kind of leader that people are looking for right now."
The sixty-second spot focuses on Mayor Giuliani's heroism after the events of September 11, 2001, and on his ability to cut through partisan politics in a divided Washington. The script of the ad reads, in part:
At times of crisis, Americans look to their leaders for strength, hope, and leadership. Five years ago, Americans looked to our president first, but we also looked to another man to help guide us through the darkness, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. He wasn't just the mayor of New York, he was America's mayor . . . Rudy Giuliani has shown us what it takes to lead in the toughest of circumstances.
As America begins to focus on who will be our next president, we want change. We want someone who will rise above partisan politics and get things done . . . Please join us in asking Rudy Giuliani to run for president of the United States. We need his steady hand and his steadfast leadership. Sign a petition to draft Rudy Giuliani for President at draftrudygiuliani.com. Draft Rudy Giuliani for President is a federal committee filed with the Federal Election Commission and cannot, by law, coordinate its efforts with Mayor Giuliani.
"This is an all-volunteer effort," added Fore. "The thousands of people who have signed our petition online at www.draftrudygiuliani.com have already shown us that there is strong support for a Giuliani candidacy. And we want to do everything we can to encourage Mayor Giuliani to run for president. American would be well-served by having Rudy Giuliani in the White House."
The mayor has stated publicly that he will make a final decision about a 2008 presidential bid either later this year or in early 2007. Just yesterday, it was announced that he has officially begun the process of exploring a run.
The first radio ad, "We Needed Him Then, We Need Him Now," can be heard and downloaded online at:
RINO's don't fly !!!!
I'm sure there will be countermeasure ads that tell people where he actually sits on several key positions.
Mayor Giuliani has a demonstrated record of success ...
When Rudy had the chance to take on Hildabeast he was nowhere to be found.
He lost my vote a long time ago.
Unless some stealth candidate emerges, it sounds like it will be Rudy or Romney. Neither are especially palatable to me, but hopefully somebody else will emerge in the next year.
If it's Rudy vs. Hilary, it's Rudy all the way.
Unfortunately, he's almost as good as John McCain. And that ain't saying much.
Right now I'm leaning towards supporting Duncan Hunter.
He was home, battling cancer. Moron.
Sorry, that URL didn't work.
Try this and check the poll:
Beat me to it.
Rudy will chase away the Christian right and without their votes and especially their campaign work, the GOP will be RIP.
I'd say he's better than McCain from this standpoint-you know what his beliefs are even though you might not agree with them, but with McCain you have some one whose beliefs are based upon what media reaction he'll get from it. Of the two, I'd take Rudy.
That's because he dropped out and had a bigger fight to win, against cancer.
