Draft Rudy Giuliani for President
Files With the Federal Election Commission
(Chicago, IL) Earlier today, the Federal Election Commission returned organizational documents to Draft Rudy Giuliani for President, Inc., making the campaign the first and only federal committee formed with the sole purpose of encouraging former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to run for President of the United States in 2008.
"This is the beginning of a nationwide effort to show Mayor Giuliani the tremendous support that exists throughout the United States for a Giuliani presidential candidacy," said Allen Fore, a veteran Republican political consultant and co-founder of Draft Rudy Giuliani for President. "America needs and wants this great man to lead our nation. We're starting the grassroots effort to make a Giuliani candidacy a reality."
Recent polls including a survey released on November 12 by Rasmussen Reports, indicate that Giuliani is currently the favorite presidential candidate among Republican voters, leading both Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Senator John McCain.
"We are absolutely convinced that with the current climate in Washington, Rudy Giuliani would be an excellent Republican nominee," said the group's other co-founder, Nicholas Tyszka. "There hasn't been a time in recent memory when Washington has been so divisive. The great thing about Mayor Giuliani is that he has such a broad-base of appeal, even cutting across political lines. America knows Rudy Giuliani as a proven leader who has demonstrated success. That's the kind of leadership that Americans want in Washington right now."
