Rudy Guiliani

This week on Speaking Freely, host Dennis Raimondi has a short interview with Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giulliani. Giulliani, the former mayor of New York City, who was traveling through Iowa, is the Republican national frontrunner, though he is presently fourth in the polls in Iowa.

A lawyer, businessman, and politican from the state of New York, Giuliani served in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, eventually becoming U.S. Attorney.

Giuliani later served two terms as as Mayor of New York (1994–2001). Giuliani gained international attention during and after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. In 2001, Time magazine named him "Person of the Year" and he was knighted by Quenn Elizabeth II.

After leaving office as mayor, Giuliani founded Giulliani Partners, a security consulting business, acquired Giuliani Capital Advisors (later sold), an investment banking firm, and joined the Bracewell & Giulliani law firm, which changed its name when he became a partner.
