SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–Joel Surnow, the producer of the hit television series ’24,’ on Saturday told a group of conservative bloggers that he favors Rudy Giuliani for president and questioned whether people were “nuts” to think Hillary Clinton could be president.
“I’m probably going to get behind Rudy,” Surnow said when asked about his preferences for the 2008 presidential election, following a speech to college conservatives at the the Young America’s Foundation West Coast Leadership Conference. “I like him. I know him personally. I like his toughness.”
While Surnow said Giuliani has “got some negatives,” he said he thinks the former New York mayor has a better chance of beating Clinton than any other Republican. However, he said Mitt Romney was more likely to win the GOP nomination given his lead in the early states.
Surnow also questioned the idea of current Democratic frontrunner taking charge of the White House.
“Are we nuts thinking Hillary Clinton could be president of this country?” he asked. “Honest to god, just stand back and think about it. Forget about who she is. Her voting record is so crazy.”
Surnow contributed $2,100 to Giuliani’s presidential campaign last December, according to FEC filings.
