SACRAMENTO – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani received a warm welcome Saturday from California GOP activists, who responded to his strong leadership in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Being mayor, he said at the California Republican Party convention, “prepares you as best you can be prepared to be the president of the United States.” Giuliani spoke for nearly 45 minutes – touching on health care, crime, terrorism and Iraq – in a speech laden with references to a possible bid for president. He mocked inaction in Washington, saying he would be a decisive leader. “Presidents make decisions and move things forward,” he said. “That’s the kind of president I would like to be.” Giuliani took another step in that direction Monday, when he filed a “statement of candidacy” with the Federal Election Commission. During a news conference, Giuliani, who has faced questions about his commitment to the 2008 race, was asked, “Are you in this for good?” “Yes, I am committed,” he said. “This is something I believe I can bring something to, from the experiences that I’ve had.” When asked about when he would make a formal announcement, he responded, “Well, formally announce? I don’t know. If you go back to my speech, I think I may have. I’m not sure.” On a day when a leading Democrat, Sen. Barack Obama, announced his presidential bid by invoking Abraham Lincoln, Giuliani said Lincoln’s legacy, holding the nation together through the Civil War, really belonged to Republicans. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
