Governor Perry gives Mayor Guiliani a hand in Florida

L-R: Former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani, Governor Rick Perry

Texas Gov. Rick Perry campaigned in Florida with Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on Monday to give the former New York Mayor a last-minute boost with conservatives in the pivotal primary state.

Perry joined the former New York mayor for an airport rally in Orlando, then they headed on to similar events in St. Petersburg, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale and Miami in advance of Tuesday's primary.

Giuliani has yet to win a primary and has geared his campaign strategy around a victory in Florida. Recent polls show Giuliani trailing Senator John McCain and former Governor Mitt Romney in the state. Giuliani's campaign wanted to have Perry in Florida last week, but Perry wasn't available until Monday, said Perry spokesman Robert Black.
