Giuliani open to running for governor of New York.

“A top adviser” to Rudy Giuiliani says the former mayor of New York City “is eyeing a run for governor in a special election this fall should Gov. [David] Paterson be forced to resign.” Since taking office, Paterson has disclosed “one bombshell announcement after another” about past affairs and decades old drug use. The New York Post reported earlier this week that “state lawmakers are researching who will succeed Gov. Paterson if he has to resign,” but the chances of that do not seem likely, as his “disclosures have raised little outrage, either from the public or his colleagues in Albany.”
