Rudy Saying Goodbye?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Florida, Giuliani

Interesting doublespeak from Giuliani today…

From LA Times:

In a meeting in the back of his chartered plane en route to St. Petersburg, Fla., a short while ago, the onetime, longtime GOP front-runner told a small group of reporters, including The Times’ Louise Roug: “The winner of Florida will win the nomination.”

He then went on to predict he would win. And his spokeswoman, Maria Comella, said later he was speaking with confidence.

But that’s an unusually categorical statement suggesting that only a total first-place upset by Giuliani, who trails both Mitt Romney and John McCain in all major polls for Florida’s Republican primary tomorrow, will keep him in the competition, despite previous repeated vows to continue.

Yep, Rudy knows he’s not going to win, so I do think he’s saying he’s done.

And concerning that prediction about Florida, I don’t think it’s necessarily true. This one is going to go past Super Tuesday and maybe even all the way to the convention.

But one thing’s for sure…Rudy won’t be along for the ride.

    Yeah, uh –
    I don’t think anyone’s upset. Really.
    Did his campaign really get anyone hot and bothered?
