Rudy Giuliani: Jeb Bush is the GOP front-runner

Jeb Bush Rudy GiulianiOn Thursday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Jeb Bush is GOP front-runner heading into the 2016 presidential election.

“I think Jeb Bush is the front-runner and the star of the field. He’s the guy everybody has to focus on," Giuliani said.

Giuliani was critical of potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“If he had made Benghazi a bigger issue, I think we would have had a better chance. He backed off it in the debate and he shouldn’t have — I think he was advised to because he made one mistake about Benghazi that Candy Crowley was wrong about and I think he got shy about it.

“He’s going to have to convince his big supporters, many of whom have already gone to Bush or Christie, that he’s going to run a different kind of campaign this time. That it’s going to be a much more aggressive campaign, it’s going to be a much more engaged campaign. He’s going to have to convince his supporters he’s going to be a very different kind of candidate.

"This is a better field,” Giuliani said.

“I’m not the head of the RNC, but if I was I would say the following, If you say anything bad about a Republican, I’m coming on this show and saying something bad about you. I don’t care what it is. We are running against Hillary Clinton — we’re not running against Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, we’re all on the same side," Giuliani also said.
