Giuliani just can't stay away from Florida

How much is Rudy Giuliani banking on a big Florida primary win? So much that the former New York City mayor will spend part of Iowa caucus day in the Sunshine State.

According to a campaign advisory, the GOP prez contender will spend Jan. 3 campaigning in New Hampshire and Florida. Giuliani just wrapped up a 3-day Florida campaign swing Friday.

Giuliani's campaign is hoping a decent showing in Florida on Jan. 29 will help propel him to victory on Feb. 5 when a number of delegate-rich states, including New York, Illinois, California and New Jersey hold their primaries.

Giuliani's once comfortable lead in Florida has fallen as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee rises in the polls. Both contenders battled this week in Florida for votes.
