Rudy is Running

Rudy is no longer “testing the waters.” He’s in, or at least he’s about as close as one can be without actually saying it:

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor whose popularity soared after his response to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, moved closer to a full-fledged campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Monday.

In a sign that he’s serious about running for the White House, the two-term mayor was filing a so-called “statement of candidacy” with the Federal Election Commission. In the process, he was eliminating the phrase “testing the waters” from earlier paperwork establishing his exploratory committee, said an official close to Giuliani’s campaign.

As I have said before, I think Rudy is a fine candidate who deserves a serious look.
