Giuliani Likely to Run for NY Gov.

Monday, 29 Jun 2009 03:34 PM

Former New York City Mayor and GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani told CNN Monday that he is considering running for governor in 2010.

Appearing on CNN’s “American Morning,” Giuliani said that “I don’t know if I am or if I’m not” running for governor. But pushed further, he conceded that he is indeed “thinking about it.”

“I don’t know if I’m at the point of seriously considering it,” he said. “It’s a little too early.”

According to a June Quinnipiac University poll, Giuliani holds a 52 percent to 34 percent advantage over the unpopular Democratic Gov. David Paterson in a potential general election matchup, Politico reported.

Giuliani’s chances, however, are less promising against a stronger Democratic opponent, Politico reported. In a potential general election matchup against Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, the same poll shows Giuliani trailing 51 percent to 39 percent.
