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.No mention made of any other '08 candidate. Perhaps that's not so surprising.
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.).
