Giuliani returns to the sixth borough

After a bumpy couple of days -- a lackluster performance in Wednesday's CNN/YouTube debate, reports of his use of the city's security detail to visit his mistresss -- Rudy Giuliani returns to friendly turf and the next best thing to home in New York: South Florida.

He's scheduled to host a 3:30 p.m. town meeting at the Boca Raton Marriott and attend a $2,300-per-person reception this evening at the St. Regis Resort in Fort Lauderdale.

Just a guess: Hizzoner will try to stick to comfortable topics like fighting terrorism and crime. He was forced into talking about gun control, abortion and even the Bible at Wednesday's CNN/YouTube debate.

The fundraiser is being organized by Giuliani's under-45, "All-American" fundraising team in Florida led by John Scherer of Gulf Building Corp.
