WASHINGTON (CNN) - Rudy Giuliani will support former eBay CEO Meg Whitman's California gubernatorial bid, her campaign announced Wednesday.
Giuliani, a former Republican presidential candidate who is mulling his own run for governor in New York, called Whitman "simply the best person to lead our country's largest state."
"Meg's disciplined focus on creating jobs, cutting wasteful spending and improving education is the right course for California," Giuliani said in a statement. "I also believe that Meg Whitman can help reenergize the grassroots of the Republican Party."
The current California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is term-limited. Whitman will face State Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner and former Rep. Tom Campbell in the 2010 Republican primary.
And, did I miss something somewhere..... since when did California become "our country's largest state"??
I could have sworn that when I was in school we were taught that Alaska and Texas were both larger than California.
Maybe Rudy's been sniffing that Republican paint thinner again....
What did Meg ever do to you to deserve this Rudy?
A crook is a crook, is a crook rudy. RJ if you would go into a welfare office as you seem to indicate mostly minorities are there, count on the little ole fingers and you will find 75% of the receipents are white. Not prejudiced just facts.
Getting an endorsement from Rudy 9/11 is like getting a bad case of hemmroids. You pray it goes away.... SOON...
Rudy thinks she's the best person to lead our "biggest state? Alaska? 'Cause it's the biggest: not California. Oh, yeah, he's the one who can't run his own campaign and from the East Coast.
How does CNN even see this as news?
Rudy Giuliani is meaningless.
Well population wise, including illegals, it's the largest. Still 3rd in land sized behind Alaska and Texas last I heard unless Calif annexed Mexico without telling anyone....Oh, wait, maybe Calif is the largest...didn't both Palin and the current Gov of Tex want to secede from the Union?
WOW!!!! An endorsement from last place Rudy that ought to seal a double digit loss for Whitman. When are people going to realize Rudy is a loser. His claim to fame? He was mayor of a city that got attacked. Thats it.
What's the matter, CNN? Sarah Palin not doing anything today? Had to fall back to Rudy "noun-verb-9/11" Giuliani?
Callifornia does not need this typical Republican Carpetbagging plain Jane pig leading our state. She instead should lead in one of theose Southern States where her backwards ideas are clearly understood. She is a failure and we need someone Like Steve Poisner of Jerry Brown to lead our state.
Oh boy, the train is really leaving the station with Rudy on board... NOT
Ruddy Juliani? The one who did not have a single delegate in the republican primaries? The one who used taxpayer money for his girlfriend Judith? Who really cares? CNN stop dignify the microscopic repugs please. I will buy you a mocca if you cover real news
I hope Ruby runs for public office in 2010. I want him to answer the following question: On 9/11 you had been the mayor of NYC for 7 years and 9 months, why was it that the NYC fire and police departments had radios that were incompatible? On 9/11, brave men and women died because the NYC police and fire departments could not communicate with one another at ground zero. This was a disgrace.
Meg's Ebay was worthless when someone ripped me off for a Palm Device years ago. Now she wants to run California !
Who the heck cares what Rudy thinks?
Who cares? Rudolph Giuliani's time has passed. His policies and ideas are antiquated in the 21st century and his endorsement should be meaningless in California. If Ms. Whitman agrees with him on how to run government it means she would be wrong for the nation's most populous state.
Big deal! He's not a CA voter so it doesn't really matter.
"simply the best person to lead our country's largest state."
Where was Rudi educated?...."sarah Palin U"
hahaha this guy he needs to stop getting divorced first... his on his fifth wife already
Mr 9-11 9-11?? Why is Mr No nothing not doing anything for the firefighters and rescue workers who can't get healtcare from working at the site of the WTC?? Why are you not fighting for them Rudy???
The ultimate kiss of death.
Mr. Guilliani FYI Alaska is actually the biggest state
That lady ahs a face for radio, or hidden behind a computer, but not in national politics. Besides, only a racist inbred would give two hoots what Dick Nixon...err...I mean, Rudy Giuliani has to say. He's a smug, unhappy little man.
Um I bet all of you people on here werent validating that Alaska was the biggest state in the country when you were making your jokes about Palin were you??? Because then she would have some intelligence. Right?
I wish her the best! Good Luck! California needs help.
