MELBOURNE, Fla. -- The FBI advised Florida police of an alleged bomb threat prompting Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani to change a campaign stop.
Giuliani had planned to deliver a tax speech Wednesday at the Harris Corp. in Melbourne, but a bomb threat an hour before his appearance prompted an evacuation of the building, The New York Times said Thursday.
The Melbourne Police Department conducted a sweep of the company's headquarters building and found nothing unusual, WKMG-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported.
The scare forced Giuliani to move his speech to a secure airplane hanger amid heightened security and bomb-sniffing dogs.
