Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani still isn't endorsing Mitt Romney for president.

Despite Romney's win in Florida and Nevada this weekend, Giuliani told Bob Schieffer on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday he still had reservations about Romney.

And Giuliani suggested serious issues divide Gingrich and Romney.

Here's the key take from Giuliani:
  • "There is a difference. They have some big differences over Romneycare. They have big differences over taxes.
  • "Newt's plan on taxes is better than Gov. Romney's plan, it's . . . bolder.
  • "Newt is much more willing to make dramatic changes in the way the government operates."
Asked by Schieffer why he still won't endorse Romney, Giuliani responded:

"[Romney] has changed his position on virtually everything," Guiliani said. "He was a traditional moderate Republican, strong on fiscal matters, conservative, strong on foreign policy, but basically socially moderate. And he changed all that."

"I am a moderate Republican, that's what I am. So I'd be inclined to support someone like Mitt Romney. But all those changes in positions give me pause."
