    Political Wire ^ | April 6, 2007
    An internal Rudy Giuliani strategy memo "says conservative voters already know and are comfortable with the candidate. The March 22 memo, a copy of which was obtained by The State, quotes polls from Gallup and Newsweek that show Giuliani with a wide lead among self-described conservatives and regular churchgoers and a slim lead among those who say they attend church weekly." Writes strategist Brent Seaborn: "There are, of course, some voters that will never vote for Mayor Giuliani, and we know that we will see polls tighten. But the 'when voters find out about Rudy’s record the sky will fall'...

    As mayor of New York City, Giuliani led an entity with a larger and more diverse population and economy than most of our states and many countries. His leadership example in the nation's largest city is a model for communities all across America, including our cities right here in the 15th District. Rudy has a proven record of fiscal responsibility. The columnist George Will once said of him, ''His eight years as mayor of New York were the most successful episode of conservative governance in this country in the last 50 years.'' Mayor Giuliani inherited a $2.3 billion dollar budget...

    The former mayor of New York leads Sen. John McCain by a 36 percent to 24 percent margin among the state's likely GOP primary voters, and is the choice of nearly four in 10 of those who say they are "strongly conservative." "Voters are not picking up fully on his positions or tending to discount them because of overriding issues like terrorism and Iraq, " DiCamillo said of Giuliani. Only one in five California Republicans say there is no chance they would vote for Giuliani, and he enjoys an 80 percent favorability rating. But no matter which of the top...

    White evangelicals made up one-third of the electorate in Iowa in the 2004 presidential election, according to exit polls conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks. Two-thirds of them voted for George W. Bush. Nationally, evangelicals were 23 percent of the electorate in 2004 and they voted overwhelmingly for Bush. Republicans suffered a dramatic setback in Iowa in the midterm elections with a Democrat winning the governor's office and Republicans losing two seats in Congress. In addition, both chambers of the state Legislature rolled to Democratic control, and Scheffler acknowledged that a main reason was that religious conservatives...

    Monterey Herald ^ | March 29, 2007 | William Douglas
    In his drive to be the first politician to go from City Hall to the White House, Republican Rudolph Giuliani is being schooled on issues by a conservative think tank that helped him dramatically reshape New York City's public policy during his mayoralty. Giuliani is once again leaning on the expertise of the Manhattan Institute, a conservative brain factory. It was founded nearly 30 years ago by Antony Fisher, who was a mentor to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and a friend to Reagan administration CIA chief William Casey. Before Giuliani's first successful mayoral run in 1993, he sat...

    With considerable frequency, given that the boss is a megamillionaire celebrity with a resort home in Idaho, A-list invitations everywhere and a private plane at his beck and call, the staff of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issues one-sentence advisories to the press Sunday nights or Monday mornings: "The governor has returned to the state." For the next 10 months, those who work for a few other politicians might have to adopt that routine as well. Rudy Giuliani's staff, for instance, or Hillary Clinton's, or John Edwards', or Barrack Obama's or John McCain's. They, too, will return to California again and again...

    No one would have guessed who's lining up behind whom in California's GOP presidential primary contest. It's got lots of people scratching their heads. Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York, is getting endorsements from key California conservatives despite the fact he is pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-gay rights. Bill Simon, a dyed-in-the-wool conservative who ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 2002, is selling Giuliani to some of the state's most conservative leaders. Simon worked for Giuliani when he headed the U.S. Attorney's office in New York. The two were eating breakfast together in New York on the morning of...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani visited The Players Course at Craig Ranch in McKinney on Tuesday for a golf tournament designed to raise money for his presidential exploratory committee. Giuliani, who has not officially announced he will be a candidate, has recently become the front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2008, according to most polls. About 80 people paid up to $2,300 to play golf with Giuliani. The mayor who saw New York City residents through the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center said he could bring leadership to the Republican Party...

Jones GALLUP NEWS SERVICEPRINCETON, NJ -- With the 2008 Republican presidential field beginning to come into shape, there are still questions and apparent opportunities for a favorite "conservative" candidate to emerge. The three leading announced contenders -- Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney -- have taken stances in the past that are out of step, if not unpopular, with conservative voters, although all have taken recent steps to try to reassure conservatives. The key question is...

    The big-name, big-money candidate with big question marks, or the no-name who checks all the right ideological boxes? Values voters in South Carolina — pro-gun rights, anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage conservatives who helped put George W. Bush in the White House and remain a potent force in the Republican Party — are grappling with that question. “I don’t really have a candidate,” said Bob Sawyer, a retired boat distributor who lives in Lexington County. “Right now, it’s open.” National polls show former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., to be the early GOP front-runners,...

    WASHINGTON - With the presidential election less than two years away, a handful of California lawmakers are already rallying around former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani for the Republican nomination. Among them: conservative Reps. Jerry Lewis of Redlands and Devin Nunes of Visalia and moderate Rep. Mary Bono of Palm Springs. Giuliani, whose stance on abortion, gay rights, gun-control and immigration puts him at odds with the party's conservative base, also has won the support of key California conservatives in recent days. They include Bill Simon, a former Republican candidate for governor and longtime friend, and Steve Frank, publisher of...

    Bill Simon: I think Rudy will make an extraordinary President. I don't know of anyone I'm in 100% agreement with respect to every issue -- even my fellow conservatives. So I'm not troubled if I don't agree with someone on every issue as long as they demonstrate very strong leadership qualities, which Rudy does, and a very strong sense of public service, which Rudy does, and a very firm agenda in areas that are important to me and in a way in which he can execute -- all of which Rudy does. When you think about the priorities he's expressed...
