Rudy Giuliani: I'm disappointed by his lack of response to get involved in his Michigan campaign

Several weeks ago, I signed up on Rudy Giuliani's website to get involved in his effort to gain support for his presidential candidacy in Michigan.

My view then was that he had the skills to bring people together and that he had a vision and he had the management skills needed to run the country.  I based this on his background as a prosecutor and as mayor of New York City, especially during the 9/11 tragedy.

I figured that I would get some kind of response from stepping out and from blogging about my support and my willingness to get involved.

As of today, I've gotten nothing from his exploratory campaign.  Zilch.  Is that an indicator about his interest in Michigan?  I hope not.

I signed up for the e-newsletters for other candidates, both Republican and Democrat.  I get a steady stream of e-mails providing info about their position on relevant issues and encouragements for me to get involved and to get my friends involved.

Rudy, if you're serious about Michigan, you need to step it up.  If not, then say so.

Might be time to step out and continue my candidate shopping.

Anybody in Michigan hear from the Giuliani campaign?
