NEW YORK – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he's not running for governor or for U.S. Senate.
Giuliani tells WABC-TV Tuesday that he's decided to turn his attention to his law firm and consulting business rather than commit to another high-profile run for office.
The former presidential candidate says he "would have loved to have run for either governor or the Senate," but says he feels he owes it to his business partners to focus on his private enterprises.
Giuliani says the Republicans still have plenty of potential candidates to choose from for the Senate race against Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand. They include ex-Gov. George Pataki and U.S. Rep. Pete King.
