Some of the most prominent Republicans in the Bay State are supporting either Rudy Giuliani or John McCain. Rudy's campaign released the following information:
"The team will be led by senior exploratory cmte adviser/ex-Gov. Paul Cellucci (R-MA), while state Sens. Richard Tisei, Bruce Tarr, and Michael Knapik will serve as co-chairs. Ex-MA GOP state cmte chair Brian Cresta will serve as eastern MA chair, and ex-state Senate Min. Leader Brian Lees will serve as western MA chair."
Supporters of Rudy argue that a conservative Republican, like Romney, would not benefit the GOP in Massachusetts. Also, under the Romney regime the GOP lost seats in the legislature.
