Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani filed the necessary paperwork and now he is in the 2008 Presidential race. As reported on SC Hotline, the Mayor made clear that he is opposed to gay marriage, and contends he is a true conservative.
The Mayor touts his record of reducing the size of government as Mayor of New York, along with his record of reducing taxes and fighting crime. Further, the Mayor was "Mr. Cool under pressure." during the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
It is hard to tell if that cool leadership will play into real political results in the SC GOP Presidential primary. But one thing is for sure, the McCain and Romney folks now have another contender to deal with. Giuliani is no small candidate. He brings a lot of credibility to the table, and he will will force the terrorism issue.
But will SC GOP voters vote terror, or vote reform, like McCain would have them, or will they vote in the wake of the surely negative campaign that is to come from Romney?
Only time will tell. But for now, welcome, Rudy, to the big time.
