Dennis Miller endorses Giuliani
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani picked up a celebrity endorsement Tuesday from comedian Dennis Miller. Miller once hosted his own show on CNBC, coanchored Monday Night Football, and was on the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live.

The comedian has previously shown interest in politics and revealed that he was once asked to challenge Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California, but said he wasn't quite ready.

"Maybe when I get older I would think about it, just as a lark, view it as its own form a of TV show," Miller said at the time about choosing not to contest Boxer. "I think it would be fun to get in there and turn out the whole process -- just refuse to play and don't budge."

In addition to Miller, Giuliani also announced support of several Republican California officials including Rep. Jerry Lewis.
