South Carolina may be a make-or-break state for most of the GOP candidates, but Rudy Giuliani is hedging his bets, according to a press conference today with top strategists.

“I think what we see is there’s a possibility of two paths. And obviously, we agree that there’s the ability for the momentum that comes out of early states, or we wouldn’t be as focused as we are on some of the early states.”

“But we also recognize that, with so many large delegate-rich states moving up to so early in the process, that it’s impossible to think that it will be over after only three states vote.”

But, lets remember, Giuliani wasn’t even supposed to be competitive in South Carolina, so a less than first-place finish certainly won’t be a death blow. That said, the news from South Carolina will be the winner.
