Former Massachusetts governor Paul Cellucci told the Globe yesterday that he is supporting former New York City mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani for president over Mitt Romney — even though Romney called Cellucci and asked for his endorsement in a meeting two weeks ago.
Cellucci called Romney, who served one term as Massachusetts governor , a “capable leader” and said there was no snub intended. “This is not anti-Mitt. This is pro-Rudy,” Cellucci said in an interview.
Nonetheless, Giuliani’s staff, which is preparing for the former mayor’s debut on the New Hampshire campaign trail tonight, was quick to tout the endorsement as a sign of Romney’s weakness and Giuliani’s growing appeal.
This has to be a blow to the Mitt Romney campaign. Will Cellucci do television for Giuliani?
