Report: Giuliani Supports Increased Space Budget

From Florida Today:

Troubled by low rankings in polls, Rudy Giuliani has announced support for a NASA budget increase, a move sure to find favor in Brevard County.”This is the first candidate willing to increase NASA’s budget,” said State Rep. Thad Altman, Giuliani’s state campaign co-chairman.

Actually, very few Republican candidates will own up to increasing budgets of any sort, these days.

More from Jeff Foust at Space Politics.

[T]he end includes comments from Mark Albrecht, identified as a “senior policy adviser” to Giuliani; Albrecht tells the newspaper that Giuliani is willing to support a budget increase for NASA because he perceives it as “vital to national security”.

The comments are worth a read, too.
