From the Big Apple to the biggest farm show

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani spoke to farmers, ranchers and agribusiness leaders today at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif.

The Republican is touring California to drum up support for a run for his party's presidential nomination.

Giuliani, with an American flag pin on his lapel and an American flag on the wall, behind him, made a speech shortly after the official opening of the World Ag Expo this morning.

Giuliani's California tour begs the question, when does a presidential candidate become a presidential candidate. Giuliani said in California this week that he will enter the race, but he has not made a "formal" declaration of his candidacy.

Find out more about what Giuliani had to say to the farm crowd at the expo, and more about the farm show's opening day later today at capitalpress.com.

The photo of Giuliani was taken by Capital Press California Editor Bob Krauter, who is one of three ag journalists from our staff covering the World Ag Expo this week, which continues through Thursday.
