Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani says today maybe he will and maybe he won't run for governor next year.
"I don't know if I'm at the point of seriously considering it," he said. "It's a little too early."
Politico helpfully points out that early polling shows Giuliani crushing Gov. David Paterson but getting stomped by state AG Andrew Cuomo.
Giving an early indication of the kind of media reception he can expect, Katie Connolly uses her Newsweek blog post on this non-announcement to rehearse Giuliani's marital sins and disastrous presidential run before shruggingly writing that these will likely be a non-factor for New York voters.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
