In a blow to Republicans, Rudy Giuliani announced today that he won't run for the Senate seat currently held by Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand. This, despite polls showing Giuliani defeating Gillibrand. Giuliani's decision doesn't mean the Republicans have no chance of taking the seat once held by Hillary Clinton. But it does mean they have less of a chance, and they've lost a potential national Senatorial spokesman for an assertive foreign and counter-terrorism policy.

I guess Giuliani will have his hands full making Rio safe for the 2016 Olympic Games.
