Andrew Giuliani, son of America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Trump staffer, says he is planning to run for governor of New York in 2022.
- “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,” he added.
- “It just shows how terribly Cuomo has run the state into the ground and the truth is the assembly in State Senate is to blame as well.”
Andrew Cuomo is still expected to run for governor again next year despite the allegations he has faced around sexual misconduct and nursing home COVID-19 data. Giuliani says he expects to challenge Cuomo on crime, taxes, education, and the mutiny of New Yorkers.
It is reported that Giuliani has been encouraged by conservative donors and political figures, and has the backing of Donald Trump.
Giuliani worked in the Trump White House as an associate of the Office of Public Liaison, coordinating White House events with sports figures and teams, and is currently a contributor to Newsmax TV.
