WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, R-New York, told an audience member at Tuesday's presidential debate that the way to bring back moderate Republicans and independent voters is "to nominate me."
He added "the Republican Party can unite around two major principles" citing terrorism and the economy.
Giuliani attacked the Democrats and said they "are on defense against terrorism. And you saw that two nights ago here. They couldn't even utter the words 'Islamic terrorism.' It's our biggest enemy. They couldn't utter it. We need somebody who can stand up to that."
Giuliani concluded that Republicans also needed to be "on offense for a growth economy."
