This is the “BIG!!!!!!!!!” endorsement????? that was touted so much this morning???
Maybe it means more than it would here in New York/N.J.
Don’t get me wrong, Rudy was a great mayor, he’s a very good speaker and promoter of good causes; but he and Pataki left a legacy of personal influence-building that did diddley-squat for party building in NY over the life of their terms.
If he’s such a big endorsement, why is he not a candidate for U.S. Senate in NY (and why is Pataki suggesting HE is?).
I guess I’m ignoring all the snowbirds in Florida.
Consider he’s making the announcement in South New York and it isn’t so strange.
Looks like Good Time Charlie’s back-stabbing chickenssss are coming home to roooooosssst!
