Giuliani: 'I'm running'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani unofficially made it official Monday, telling a California crowd he is running for the GOP presidential nomination.

"I'm running...this is something that I believe I can make a contribution both to the campaign on the Republican side and ultimately the eventual campaign," Giuliani told a crowd at the World Agriculture Expo in Tulare, California.

"When I think about my background, my experience, and being from Brooklyn, to possibly be a candidate for president or possibly president -- that's a real big thing to get your mind around, but I think as best as you can have preparation for, I have," Giuliani added.

The New York Republican formed an exploratory committee late last year
