NEW YORK: The former Mayor of New York City, Rudolph Giuliani, on Monday filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission, taking one step further to run for the White House in 2008, local media reported. The move did not commit him to run for President but merely lays down a formal basis with the commission to move toward a full-fledged campaign. This would put Mr Giuliani on equal footing with John McCain and Mitt Romney, two fellow Republicans interested in running for the presidency. On Monday evening, Mr. Giuliani was on Long Island campaigning for a Republican State Senate candidate. He said his own campaign is ready to move forward. ``There's just a lot of enthusiasm. A lot of people saying you should go ahead with it, we will support you, we'll help you,'' said Mr. Giuliani.
