So how did Voigt come to back Giuliani? Because, according to ABC’s Jake Tapper, Giuliani “understands the threat we face from terrorism” having led New York through the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
And though Giuliani’s poll numbers are coming in low, Voigt “was still hoping for a Giuliani win tonight, though he expressed regret at how the media was covering Florida as essentially a two-man race between Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney,” Tapper reported.
Early Tuesday evening, the Associated Press reported “12 percent of the state’s precincts showed McCain [Stallone] with 34 percent of the vote, and Romney with 31.” Giuliani [Voigt] and Huckabee [Norris] were trailing at 18 percent and 13 percent, respectively.
