Giuliani: I 'Probably' Will Run for GOP Presidential Nod if No Candidate Emerges

Monday, 04 Apr 2011 12:58 PM

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is sounding more like a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Giuliani told a group at the University of Arkansas that he “probably” would jump into the race if no one candidate he would deem electable emerges, the National Journal reported Monday.

“My concern about 2012 is — because I’m a Republican — to make sure that the Republican Party fields a candidate that can win,” he said. “And if I think that I can help by being a candidate, then that would probably persuade me to do it. But if I can help by supporting another candidate, then I’d probably do that.”

Giuliani said there’s still time to decide.

“There’s time to figure that out,” he said. “The good thing about this election, as opposed to four years ago, is that it’s happening very slowly, so it gives you a chance to think about it; gives you a chance to get it down to a smaller period of time so people can focus more on the issues.”
