(Newser) – Rudy Giuliani today got one step closer to maybe announcing a run for New York governor in 2010, the Daily News reports. The former NYC mayor and Republican presidential candidate explained his position to CNN. “I’m thinking about it,” he said. “I don’t know if I’m at the point of seriously considering it. It’s a little too early.”

The state GOP has apparently given Giuliani a deadline of early fall to decide. A survey shows Giuliani faring well against current Gov. David Patterson in a general election, Politico adds—52%-34%. But if state attorney general Andrew Cuomo was the Democratic nominee, the study finds, Giuliani would fall 51%-39%.
