Rudy Giuliani's Florida gamble
Many called his political strategy risky, but when former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani shunned campaigning all out in Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan Nevada or South Carolina to focus on Florida, most knew it was a do-or-die act.
His standings in the polls slipped as Sen. John McCain, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee passed Giuliani by, and his campaign never regained momentum after the loss.
