Giuliani Not Running For Governor; Cuomo Becomes The Frontrunner

More

So reports The New York Times, which has learned of Giuliani's decision from "people who have been told" of it. Giuliani hasn't announced it publicly, so this is all second-hand so far. This now makes Attorney General Andrew Cuomo the consensus frontrunner: Gov. David Paterson's (D) is very unpopular in the state, and former Rep. Rick Lazio of Long Island is the only Republican who has announced a bid. A Rasmussen poll released yesterday showed Cuomo beating Lazio 57 percent to 29 percent; against Giuliani, Rasmussen reported a much, much closer race, with Cuomo leading Giuliani by three percentage points, 49 to 46.
