Rudy Giuliani will meet with Ted Cruz on Thursday in New York, according to a national political operative and Republican operative in New York familiar with the plans.
The meeting could signal a significant shift: Giuliani had in February said he was acting as an informal adviser to Donald Trump, and had spoken favorably of him publicly several times, including at an event in Peoria, Illinois, when he alluded to the billionaire developer’s slogan, saying, “I hope you’ll look for a candidate who can set a direction for this country that one, talks about how great they are, a lot.”
But with the New York primary looming April 19, the former New York mayor and 2008 presidential candidate seems to be having second thoughts. He’ll meet with the Texas senator, who’ll need to pull of a significant upset to be able to beat Trump in his home state and to rack up the delegates to force a brokered convention in Cleveland, where he’d hope to come out on top with the nomination.
