Giuliani is Gone From Race

Republican candidate Rudy Giuliani announced today that he is dropping out of the 2008 presidential nomination race. This announcement comes a day after Giuliani finished third in the Republican primary in Florida. The former mayor had not received any primary wins prior to the announcement.

Giuliani gained national and international recognition for his efforts to help New York in the days following the September terrorist attacks in 2001. Giuliani was then the GOP front-runner in several national polls last year.

The announcement came as Giuliani said to supporters with tight smiles crowded behind him. "You don't always win, but you can always try to do it right, and you did."(MSNBC)
