According to the New York Times, "people who have been told of the decision" say that Rudy Giuliani won't be a candidate for governor of New York. Giuliani's decision shouldn't come as much of a surprise. As the Times notes, he's at a stage in his political career when he seems unlikely to pursue a race in which he would have been an underdog:
It was not clear what prompted the decision, but the prospect of potentially facing Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo, who is quietly planning his own run for governor, may not have appealed to Mr. Giuliani, who suffered a bruising defeat in the 2008 Republican presidential primary. While many political analysts believe Mr. Giuliani would have comfortably beaten Gov. David A. Paterson, he would likely have faced an uphill battle against Mr. Cuomo, one of the most popular politicians in the state.
The only question now is when (not if) Cuomo announces he is running. Well, I guess another question is whether Paterson sticks in the contest, but he won't be much of an obstacle for the attorney general.
