Rudy Giuliani to speak at GOP convention

File this under the “no surprise” category since Giuliani remains rather popular among Republicans and many conservatives.

Story from Fox News:

Former Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani will speak at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., FOX News confirmed Thursday.

The former New York City mayor is scheduled to make a primetime address on Sept. 2 — the second night of the convention.

It will be Giuliani’s second opportunity to speak at a Republican convention. In 2004, he addressed the GOP on the first day of the party’s convention at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Giuliani, a loyal supporter of presumptive Republican nominee John McCain, dropped out of the presidential race on Jan. 30 after finishing a distant third in the Florida primary with only 15 percent of the vote.

If Giuliani doesn’t end up running for Governor of New York, I’m betting he’s a sure pick for a cabinet position in a McCain administration.
