    It seems the recent news that Rudy may use his pending Senate run for another shot at the GOP nomination has brought the Rudophiles back to FR in packs. In order to head-off the liberal treachery, I think we need to renew the "Stop Rudy" ping list. Does anyone know who had it, and can we start it back up again? I will run it or help run it if needed, thanks!

    America's mayor calls it as he sees it. That just about sums it up. Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani tells Neil Cavuto that moving KSM and his other 9-11 buddies to New York for trial is an unnecessary risk and for that reason he does not hold back. Please make special note of Rudy’s facial expression at the beginning of the interview.
  • NY-23: Rudy Giuliani Robocalls for Hoffman

    WATERTOWN, N.Y. — On a Sunday evening conference call with conservative bloggers — where he was joined by former Dede Scozzafava campaign manager Matt Burns — Rob Ryan, spokesman for NY-23 Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, said that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani had recorded a robocall for the campaign. That makes Giuliani one of the small number of Hoffman endorsers to put deeds behind his words, joining former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and former New York Gov. George Pataki, who’d appeared in the district, as well as Fred Thompson, who is speaking at the campaign’s last big...

    Usually it's considered common courtesy to give up your seat to a woman -- but Rudy Giualiani was reportedly none too pleased when he had to vacate his prized spot at Yankee Stadium ... to the First Lady. (snip) The paper says it was the White House that didn't want Giuliani near Obama, but get this: Michelle didn't even sit in the seats because of the weather and they remained unoccupied for the whole game.

    A close ally of Rudy Giuliani said Monday night that he believes it's "better than 50-50" that the former mayor will run for governor. "We've spoken on and off this year about it and my impression was always that he was not intent on running, but after our [recent] breakfast ... I would say he's definitely leaning toward it," said Rep. Pete King (R-L.I.). Others close to Giuliani said he will likely make his mind up in the fall. "I think he's leaning more toward it all the time," one source said. "Is he 90-10? I don't think so. He's...

    Rudy continues to play coy about challenging Gov. Paterson. So what's keeping him from making up his mind? "NY is in pretty bad shape. If I thought I could make a real difference," he told a Crain's NY breakfast, "I would do it." Two terms as mayor and more than three decades in the public eye, and he still doesn't know whether he can make a difference? The election is 15 months away. But Giuliani other candidates biding their time waiting for Rudy to make up his mind would need every bit of that time to run an effective race........

    Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie today said he will not invite former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to campaign for him in New Jersey. Christie said he hopes to welcome former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani -- who campaigned with him during the GOP primary -- back to the Garden State this fall, but he believes the race is about him, not high-profile national Republicans. "This is about New Jersey issues and New Jersey, and I don't think having Governor Palin here would do me, or frankly the state, a whole lot of good in the sense that we need to...

    They hopes to win the keys to the White House. Instead, they got tickets to Yankee Stadium. Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whose presidential aspirations collapsed in humiliating defeat in Florida last year, and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the failed GOP veep pick, enjoyed a game at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. The GOP political duo and their spouses exchanged laughs, smiles and small talk as they watched the Yanks take on Tampa Bay. At one point, Giuliani snapped a photo of his wife, Judith, with Alaska's First Couple. Giuliani invited the Palins to the game when he learned they would be...

    Rudy Giuliani went on the attack against Gov. Paterson and his fellow Democratic leaders Monday night, saying they should be "ashamed" about New York's failing economy. "The governor, all the statewide officials, the legislators should be ashamed anytime we're in a very low position, in an anti-competitive position," Giuliani told Republicans at the Albany GOP's annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner. "Because we don't have to be if we follow the right policies." Giuliani, who continues to be coy about whether he will challenge Paterson in 2010, touted his record as a fiscally responsible tax cutter and said that what New York...

    The religious right, which vehemently opposed Rudy Giuliani’s 2008 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, is rallying to the former New York mayor’s defense against attacks from gay rights groups.

David Paterson's proposed gay marriage bill and asserted it would spark a backlash against Democrats. ....[S]ocial conservatives are applauding him for his stance on an issue over which they have often been at odds with him.

    Rudy Giuliani is headlining his second New York Republican fundraiser in two weeks as a poll shows he would beat Democratic incumbent Gov. David Paterson in an election. Although many New York Republicans are pushing the former New York City mayor to consider a run for governor in 2010, Giuliani hasn't committed. On Monday he was in Albany for the annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner. Last week he was the big draw at the state Republican committee's annual dinner. Both have been must-attend events for past GOP governors. A Siena College poll on Monday finds Giuliani would beat Paterson 56% to...
