Margaret Hoover was hired in September 2006 as Deputy Finance Director for former New York mayor and Republican 2008 presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani's Solutions America political action committee. [1] Hoover left the Giuliani campaign in April 2007, "to pursue the ever-popular 'other opportunities,' adding that she's 'still supporting Rudy for president.'" [2]

Hoover, a fund-raiser, "used to work in the White House" for President George W. Bush's "political guru" Karl Rove. "Hoover, the great-granddaughter of former President Herbert Hoover, was paid $10,000 [in September 2006] as the new deputy finance director for Solutions America, Giuliani's political action committee. She reports directly to another former Bush campaign aide, Anne Dickinson, Giuliani's top fund-raiser," NewsMax reported October 29, 2006.

"Her greater value was to shore up the former mayor’s credentials with conservatives and to signal Giuliani’s seriousness about a White House run. Hoover ... also brought important national campaign experience to Giuliani’s presidential quest, having worked for Bush-Cheney '04," Chris Smith wrote in the April 9, 2007 issue of New York Magazine.
