McCain courts Eisenberg

Among the small group of elite Republican fundraisers who met privately with Senator John McCain last Friday was former Port Authority Chairman Lewis Eisenberg, a Rumson resident who once served as Finance Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Eisenberg is close to two other potential presidential candidates — former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and New York Governor George Pataki — and his presence at the McCain meeting could be interpreted as a sign that the prominent GOP fundraiser does not expect either Giuliani or Pataki to ultimately enter the race. One of McCain’s fundraisers in Mark Miller, who worked for Eisenberg at the Republican Leadership Council.
