Giuliani taps prominent Iowan
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani turned to a high-profile Iowa Republican Tuesday to serve as an advisor as he explores a bid for the White House.

Jim Nussle, a former congressman and the 2006 candidate for governor of Iowa, will be "a valued advisor in our efforts across the nation," Giuliani said in a statement.

"I'm honored to have Jim Nussle join our team as I explore a campaign for President of the United States," Giuliani added. "Iowa Republicans know Jim Nussle's character and commitment to public service

Nussle lost his gubernatorial bid to Democrat Chet Culver by approximately 100,000 votes.

Nussle said Giuliani is the right man to lead the GOP at this time.

"With a country deeply divided and a world full of uncertainty, we need an inclusive and principled leader who can bring the country together by focusing on the greater good, not picking partisan fights that fail to achieve meaningful results," Nussle said.
