--Even as I stubbornly refuse to believe that he’s really
going to run, Rudy Giuliani continues acting unmistakenly like a Presidential
candidate. Today, the Union Leader’s John DiStaso reports that the former Mayor
has compiled his New Hampshire senior staff, which includes David Tille as
state political director and Jeff Semprini -- son of departing NH GOP chair
Wayne Semprini -- as regional field director and college outreach director (for
those of you at Dartmouth and UNH wishing to get involved with the campaign).
Meanwhile out in Iowa,
Giuliani scored possibly the best get in the state with former Iowa Governor
Jim Nussle. Nussle has reportedly joined the Giuliani team -- a bit of a slap
to Mitt Romney, who poured $1.2 million of Republican Governors Association
funds into Nussle’s losing campaign.
