Giuliani Notes: Rudy Wins New Jersey GOP Straw Poll
Cross Posted from the FullosseousFlap's Dental Blog
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani got 67 percent of the vote today in a straw poll of 14 potential Republican presidential candidates conducted by the Middlesex County Republican Organization.
Guiliani got 151 votes from ballots cast by 224 GOP party workers and officials who gathered in Edison for the annual convention to decide who gets the party line in the June primary.
County Chairman Joseph Leo said the straw poll was an attempt to gauge the party’s preference in next year’s presidential campaign. U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) placed second with 22 votes and Massachusettes Gov. Mitt Romney was third with 14 votes. The other candidates each got a handful of votes.
The race for New Jersey’s GOP Presidential delegates appears to be over, if this is any indication.
And with New Jersey holding its Presidential Primary election on Super Duper Tuesday, February 5th, it may be another state that solidifies Rudy’s nomination on this date.
