Giuliani's Firewall

Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post reports on a leaked Powerpoint presentation from the Rudy Giuliani campaign. America's Mayor is targeting Miami and congressional districts. Giuliani's people are hoping to pick up delegates by winning districts.

"Florida is the firewall" proclaims the second slide of the presentation which, by in large, is aimed at outlining the goals of Giuliani's effort in the state -- which is slated to hold a primary on Jan. 29. The slide goes on to highlight two press reports: the first, from the Associated Press, notes that Giuliani has "adopted an unorthodox campaign itinerary....lavishing attention on Florida."; the second, from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, points out that "Giuliani's strategy is to win delegate rich Florida to catapult him." The next slide notes that Giuliani's average lead in national polling is seven points but his average lead in Florida is 14 points.

The camaign is playing down the Powerpoint. It's rather obvious that Giuliani wants Florida to catapult to the Republican nomination.
