Giuliani Blog Tracking the likely Presidential candidacy of Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Courts S.C. GOPers

Via the Palmetto State's own Jeff Quinton we find Hizzoner's stealth campaign making a move for South Carolina's GOP establishment. When Warren Tompkins' name gets thrown in there, you know it's serious:

South Carolina Republicans traveled to New York City last month to talk politics with former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and his staff.

The trip was part of the South Carolinians’ search for a consensus presidential candidate for 2008. It was primarily an information-seeking conference for both sides, participants said.

“There were a lot of questions. A lot of interests,” said Warren Tompkins, a Columbia-based political consultant with close ties to the White House. “We talked process, and gave the mayor and his staff the names of people to contact.”

This much is for certain. Former State GOP chairman Barry Wynn does not sound like a McCain guy:

“I do sense that if he got into the race, the people would be very excited about it,’ Wynn said. “There’s a sense we need to be inspired for the good of the country. We need some inspiration. And sometimes you can’t get that from a sitting member of Congress. We need somebody from the outside who’ll bring a fresh perspective.”

Of the half-dozen or so candidates mentioned, more than half are members of Congress.

On the other hand, Wynn said, “Guiliani creates passion, enthusiasm and excitement.”

Team Rudy needs to bring this guy in, as he's just given them their frame against McCain, who is looking very Bob Dole-like these days. South Carolina campaign chairman, anyone?

And what would a story like this be without an appearance by the thuggish, Vader-like eminence, Richard Quinn?
Richard Quinn, a consultant to the McCain campaign, said Guiliani is “unelectable in South Carolina because he’s a social liberal. When voters find out he favors gay marriage, gun control, abortion rights , their support for him will evaporate.”
We'll see how well Rudy plays in South Carolina, but the fact that a story like this is being written shows how far Team Rudy has come in allaying the fears that Hizzoner won't run.
