Big Sigh of Relief for NY-Dems
The NYDN says Rudy will announce tomorrow that he won’t run for senate next year. Which is pretty good news for the NY Dems and Sen. Gillibrand since he was running way ahead of her in the early polls.
I talk to a lot of New York State Democrats and (1) no one thought there was any chance that Rudy would run and (2) no one thought that, if Rudy ran, he’d have a chance of winning. This reaction from Philip Anderson is pretty typical. Rudy is a terrible campaigner who tends to poll well early on in races because of warm memories of the days when he was America’s mayor.
I thought everyone knew this after the 2008 Republican primary.
Let’s just stop pretending that Rudy has a future in politics at the state or national level.
