New York (CNN) – Presidential politics is surely one topic on the menu Wednesday as former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have lunch. A source familiar with the meeting confirms to CNN the two Republican leaders will break bread in New York City. The meeting comes as Giuliani is said to be considering putting his hat into the Republican presidential ring, and Christie again stating he will not run this year for the GOP nomination.
Christie, who is popular among GOP activists, has met with several of the GOP presidential candidates.
"I'm 100 percent certain I'm not going to run," Christie said Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." He also said he has not seen a "best option" yet that could compete with President Obama.
Giuliani, who ran in 2008 avoiding some of the key early states, has traveled to New Hampshire several times this year–those close to him have previously said he is seriously considering another run. Several outside Republican consultants have said Giuliani would not have a good chance of winning the nomination this time around if he chooses to mount a campaign.
The former mayor will also confer with GOP Texas Gov. Rick Perry Wednesday in New York, who's been stirring up his own presidential buzz. Their meeting will take place the morning after the governor's speech to the New York County Republican Committee.
The source refused to speak on the record because of the sensitivity of the meeting.
