Waiting on Rudy (and Romney)
Saturday, December 8th, 2007
On April 18th of this year at an event I attended at the Friar’s Club in New York City, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani was asked the following question:
“Do you know why Election Day is on Tuesday and would you consider moving it to make it more convenient for people to vote?”
He answered: “I don’t know why it’s on Tuesday but I wouldn’t change it. I am a traditionalist. I don’t even like the designated hitter rule.”
In addition to being a self-described traditionalist, Mayor Giuliani is also one of only two presidential candidates who has not responded to our Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. Whatever his position is regarding an Election Day holiday, we hope he’ll discuss further his feelings about the state of our voting system and join 14 of his fellow candidates – including John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards – in answering our Challenge.
