According to the polls, John McCain is either ahead of Giuliani in New York or pretty close to it.
But the McCain campaign’s New York chairman, Ed Cox says there’s no need to wait for February 5.
“The nomination is over. He’s got the nomination,” Cox told me when I saw him last night at a Martin Luther King celebration event in Manhattan, hosted by the Congress for Racial Equality. “He fits New York to a tee.”
What about Michael Bloomberg?
“If John McCain gets the nomination, I would predict that Bloomberg would not run because McCain occupies so much of the space that Bloomberg would want to take up,” Cox told me.
