No campaign contributions, no volunteer work, just a little name-lending and endorsement. Let someone on one of Giuliani’s steering committees get waved through a Democratic debate to pose a question and see how that defense flies with the nutroots.

Did any Republican candidate get that amount of time to address a single issue?
