Andrew Giuliani, the 35-year-old son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has announced that he will run for the GOP primary in 2022—and is aiming to take out Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is fighting several scandals.
“I’m a politician out of the womb. It’s in my DNA,” Giuliani told The New York Post.
Giuliani worked for four years as a White House aide for former President Donald Trump.
He told The Post he plans to run in the deep blue state as “a change agent,” as both his own father and Trump did.
The younger Giuliani is pro-business, pro-police, and pro-school choice, The Post noted.
He earned a B.A. from Duke University and studied marketing, management, and sociology. He is a former professional golfer.
“I know we can defeat Andrew Cuomo in 2022. I am going to be the 57th governor of New York,” he also told The Post.
Speaking of Andrew Cuomo, the current New York governor is facing yet more scrutiny, this time for the reported $5 million he made from the book he wrote in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
As Janice Dean of Fox News wrote in a scathing op-ed this week in The Post about the scandal, “My husband lost both his mother and father in separate elder-care facilities last spring. So while Cuomo was trying to sell his lies on a page to the highest bidder, a COVID-19 fire was spreading through nursing homes where our most vulnerable lived.”
She also wrote, “We now know [Cuomo’s] health department allowed more than 9,000 COVID-positive patients back into those facilities and we lost over 15,000 seniors despite his administration’s lengths to cover up the true death toll.”
