Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor, visited Dartmouth College in Hanover yesterday, teaching a political science course and holding a town hall meeting. From the Associated Press’ Holly Ramer:
Giuliani has said he still has the desire to return to public service but won’t make his decision until late August or early September. But he has promised that if he does run, he’ll avoid the mistakes he made last time, when his campaign favored speeches and photo-ops over retail politics and put little stock in the traditional roles of Iowa and New Hampshire, focusing instead on delegate-rich states that voted later. . . .
“I know why I’m doing it, because I want to help New Hampshire, help the party. But I’m also doing it because I want to figure out in my own mind the answer to the question . . . do I have a chance to win?” he said. “And the only way you’re going to do it is by talking to people, getting their opinions and then finally making a decision. And the answer is not an easy answer, it’s a difficult answer and that’s why it takes a little while.”
