Giuliani Won't Run in N.Y. Governor, Senate Races

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will not run in New York's gubernatorial race next year, a source close to the former Republican presidential candidate confirmed to CBS News.

Giuliani is expected to announce his decision at a press conference Tuesday, according to a report in the New York Post. The Post reported Monday that Giuliani will instead throw his support behind former New York Rep. Rick Lazio, who seeks to unseat Democratic Gov. David Paterson.

The Post also reported that Giuliani will not run against New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the upstate Democrat named to fill the seat vacated by Hillary Clinton when she joined President Obama's cabinet as secretary of state.
