Rudy Giuliani's presidential committee on Wednesday morning unveiled its national campaign, dubbed ''Viva Rudy,'' to reach the nation's Hispanic voters.
The Miami event kicked off with an 11 a.m. news conference at La Carretta restaurant on Bird Road in Westchester. There was a similar event in Orlando.

Giuliani was not present.

Several local politicians and public officials were on hand to endorse the former New York City mayor.
A 30-inch-by-50-inch Viva Rudy sign hung on the wall in a private second-floor room.
State Rep. Rene Garcia, statewide Hispanic chairman for Giuliani's campaign, was at the event.
''The Hispanic community has long been forgotten in many elections. In 2000, we realized how important the Hispanic vote is,'' he said.

Fifteen supporters were in the room.

''He believes in education and helping our children complete globally,'' Miami-Dade School Board member Marta Perez said.
