Rudy Giuliani tried to spin the fact newspaper endorsements haven't gone his way in a new Web video today. "Rudy Giuliani is not endorsed by The Tampa Tribune. Not endorsed by the Orlando Sentinel. Not endorsed by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. In fact, he's not endorsed by any of the liberal newspapers..."
Of course, the Trib and Sentinel are known to have more conservative editorial pages than some other Florida papers.
"Our message is a positive message," Giuliani just said to a crowd of nearly 100 at St. Pete-Clearwater airport, telling them he is avoiding the "nasty" charges that his rivals are flinging.
Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum told the crowd that Giuliani will prove the press and polls wrong.
"I understand this is the key county in Florida for Rudy Giuliani," said Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
