Giuliani Edges Toward White House Run
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Let's check in now on Republican presidential contender. Rudolph Giuliani leads some surveys among Republicans. He's even ahead of John McCain.
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
And yesterday, Giuliani took another step toward running. He filed paperwork with federal election officials.
MONTAGNE: His advantage is the heroic image of his performance on 9/11.
INSKEEP: His disadvantages include some political positions that Republican primary voters may not like.
MONTAGNE: There's been a lot of speculation about whether the former New York City mayor will really run.
INSKEEP: And yesterday, though, he told Fox News, I'm in this to win.
