Presidential hopeful and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, left, meets with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2007, in New York.
In a sign of potential money woes, Rudy Giuliani has fired his presidential campaign’s chief fundraiser and brought in a top rainmaker for President Bush, The Daily News has learned.
Anne Dunsmore, who took control of Giuliani’s day-to-day fundraising operation in May, has been replaced by Jim Lee, a Texas money man and Bush ally who is already one of Giuliani’s national finance co-chairs.
“Anne Dunsmore is no longer working on our campaign,” Giuliani communications chief Katie Levinson confirmed. “We thank Anne for her service and the departure is amicable.”
Not a good sign on the money front for the Mayor.Â A sign of weakness that certainly CAN be exploited.
Will this be the opening for Newt Gingrich?
Or the beginning of Mitt Romney stepping up the self-funding?
