Changes in the primary schedule, have candidates like Giuliani re-thinking their strategy. Florida (113) alone has more delegates than Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina combined (110). A win in Florida on Jan 29th, where he is popular with many former New Yorkers would also position him well for the mega-primary on Feb 5 that includes California, New York, Texas… Nearly 400 delegates (1/3 of those needed to be nominated) will be chosen in Florida, New York and California – 3 states Giuliani has a good chance of winning.
