Andrew Giuliani to Run for Governor of New York
Andrew Giuliani has said he plans to run for New York governor against Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2022, the Washington Examiner reported.
Giuliani, the son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, previously served as the associate director of the Office of Public Liaison for former President Donald Trump.
Despite a federal investigation into his handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes and a flood of harassment allegations, Gov. Andrew Cuomo still may run for reelection next year.
A contest between the governor and Giuliani would a match-up of two of the most prominent political families in New York.
Giuliani told the Washington Examiner that he hopes to “challenge Cuomo’s handling of crime, taxes, education, and the mutiny of New Yorkers from the state.”
"Outside of anybody named Trump, I think I have the best chance to win and take the state back," Giuliani told the Washington Examiner. "I think I'm the right candidate, and this is the right time to help change New York State, and we've got a playbook that works.”
Giuliani's bid for governor has been encouraged by conservative donors and political figures, and would have the backing of former President Trump, for whom Giuliani served as special assistant and frequent golf partner.
