Rudy Giuliani has offered to appear at fundraisers for cash-strapped Republican candidates but with strings attached, the New York Times reports. The former New York mayor wants a cut of the proceeds to go towards paying off his presidential campaign's $3.6-million debt. The debt includes a $500,000 personal loan from Giuliani, who is worth an estimated $30 million.
"In a year when our candidates are struggling to raise money, this is just another burden,” said a top GOP strategist when told of Giuliani's unusual request. “This is not about helping the party. This is about helping Rudy Giuliani.”
