Rudy doing what he enjoys most (outside watching the Yankees win)on the campaign trail supporting Republican candidates.
Rudy Giuliani yesterday jumped into the nasty political fight across the Hudson — calling New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine a “failure” and urging an independent candidate to withdraw and clear the way for Republican Chris Christie.
Giuliani said he wants independent hopeful Chris Daggett to quit and lend his support to Christie, whose poll numbers have dropped amid rising support for the third-party candidate.
“I would think he [Daggett] would not want to be the reason why New Jersey has someone like Jon Corzine for governor for the next four years, who wants to raise taxes, raise fees and basically cave in to special interests,” the former mayor told The Post.
Giuliani is stumping for Christie today and tomorrow in Jersey.
“I think [Christie] has now gotten to the margin where he can win even with Daggett, but it’d be better if Daggett wasn’t in the race,” Giuliani said.
Always the astute politician Rudy is with calling out Daggett. But, unfortunately, Daggett will not be going anywhere.
The latest poll shows Christie with a slight lead.
