Giuliani’s $50-million delegate

- Dan Morain

The failed campaign of Rudolph W. Giuliani can claim one distinctio­n: the worst bang for the buck of any delegate winner in presidenti­al politics history.

The former New York mayor, who dropped his Republican bid for the presidency this week, disclosed Thursday in a filing with the Federal Election Commission that he raised $58.5 million and spent $48.8 million in 2007.

With his donors’ money, Giuliani captured a single national delegate, in Nevada. At that rate, it would have taken close to $60 billion in spending to capture the 1,191 delegates needed to win the nomination.
