The Eisenberg Primary

One of the most sought after early endorsements of the 2008 presidential election is Lewis Eisenberg, a former Republican National Committee Finance Chairman and ex-Chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. As a major fundraiser in a state that traditionally pumps significant early money into national campaigns, Eisenberg is high an important guy to potential candidates. Insiders speculate that the likely front-runners in the “Eisenberg Primary” are former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and New York Governor George Pataki; Eisenberg has close relations with both, although the 2004 Convention Committee he headed apparently knocked heads with Pataki’s staff on numerous occasions.
