Giuliani a Top GOP Fundraiser

From The Hill. When it comes to raking in the dough for key candidates, the order of battle is POTUS, VPOTUS, FLOTUS... and Rudy.

“There is a pecking order to this, with the president at the top, the VP right near that. The first lady has taken a more active role, and she’s able to make things more successful,” the strategist said. “Most campaigns across the country would be asking for the president to do a fundraiser, especially this far out” in the election cycle.

Just below Mrs. Bush in the pecking order, the strategist added, is former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now a political consultant and partner at law and lobbying firm Bracewell & Giuliani. His leadership PAC, Solutions America, has contributed so far this cycle to Ferguson, Rep. John Sweeney (R-N.Y.), NRCC Chairman Tom Reynolds (R-N.Y.) and Michael Steele, the Maryland lieutenant governor seeking the Senate seat of retiring Paul Sarbanes (D-Md.).
No mention made of any other '08 candidate. Perhaps that's not so surprising.
