NYS Republican Chairman Joe Mondello just began speaking at a luncheon here at the Marriott Hotel that will feature speeches from Rudy Giuliani and Goerge Pataki.
From the podium, Mondello announced that the lunch is being sponsored by John Catsimatidis, who Mondello said is "a great potential candidate for the City of New York."
Catsimatidis already used his airplane to fly Giuliani and others to the convention.
Mondello said that Catsimatidis was not planning to attend the convention but did not give a reason.
