Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani spent almost a year atop national polls of registered Republicans but as 2007 turned into 2008, his presidential campaign imploded. Now he is taking a serious look at running for governor of New York. Giuliani would be the favorite against the Democratic incumbent, David Paterson, but there is a strong possibility that Andrew Cuomo or another Democrat will get to Paterson first. It will be interesting to see whether Giuliani’s 2008 presidential campaign has much impact on his standing in New York and whether he has to move to the left again on some social issues where he crept ever so slightly rightward on the national scene.
