Giuliani Fundraiser Disappoints

Rudolph Giuliani launched his presidential money hunt Monday night in Manhattan.

Giuliani's campaign refused to say how much the $2,100-a-ticket cocktail party at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square was expected to generate, but attendees said the event appeared to fall short of the 500 tickets needed to raise $1 million. According to Newsday, several Republicans said $1 million would have been a realistic goal for Giuliani's fundraiser.

Fellow presidential wannabe, John McCain, upstaged Giuliani's fundraising event by announcing a 57-member New York finance committee that includes Jets owner Woody Johnson; billionaire financier Henry Kravis; and Henry Kissinger.
