Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani met with firefighters and police officers in this early voting state Wednesday, using the forum to reference the Sept. 11 terror attacks, which earned him national attention.

“The first people that arrive on the scene of the bombing or the anthrax attack … it’s going to be one of your brothers or your sisters or you that gets to do it,” the former New York mayor told a crowd of about 200 emergency workers. “Your ability to do it well will once again determine if we save lives — save America.”

Giuliani compared firefighters and police to uniformed military personnel and said the federal Department of Homeland Security needs to ensure first responders “have the training and protection you need to defend your country.”

Looks like Mayor Giuliani is hard at work stumping for votes in South Carolina. McCain and Romney are supposed to be the top two in this state where they have long been organizing, soliciting and receiving South Carolina politico endrsements.

South Carolina will hold their primary election on Saturday, February 2, 2008, after Iowa Caucuses on January 21 and the New Hampshire primary on January 29th. This Saturday primary will be immediately preceding Super Tuesday where the big states of California, New York, Illinois and Florida will be in play.

Rudy is going for the early hat trick?

Actually, Rudy may not win South Carolina (his polling to date has been lackluster) but he is not conceding any state – at least at this early stage.

Stay tuned…….
