Bloomberg vs. Guiliani in 2010

The New York Daily News reported today that New York’s current mayor, Mike Bloomberg, is battling New York’s former mayor, Rudy Guiliani, to have his handpicked guy head the state GOP in 2009. This would be the natural move in advance of a gubernatorial bid in 2010 (the position is currently filled by a Joseph Bruno ally, GOP Chairman Joseph Mondello of Nassau County).

Good stuff. My feeling is that if they go head-to-head for the GOP nomination, Bloomberg wins in walk. The Guiliani brand (praise the lord) is tarnished after his quixotic presidential run, and there were a lot of people in New York who wanted to see Bloomberg run for president. If he wants to be governor, with that support and his loot, he will be.
