Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew Giuliani is announced his bid for governor of New York Tuesday. According to the young Giuliani, he will “fight” to make the state the “greatest” in the country.
“I’m in,” Giuliani told Fox News Tuesday, confirming he is launching a bid to take on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2022.
“New York deserves a leader who will fight to make it the greatest state in America once again,” Giuliani said. “If New Yorkers choose to elect me Governor, I will bring New York back from the precipice of ruin to the shining STATE on the hill once again!”
In video years ago, Andrew Giuliani can be seen upstaging his father, Rudy Giuliani, years ago. This became a classic played over and over again. In the video, the young Andrew Giuliani raised his hand alongside his father to take the oath of office.
Time flies and that young boy just formally announced his bid for governor of New York.
He worked in the Trump administration as associate director in the White House Office of Public Liaison and said he was “proud” of the years he spent working for former President Trump:
“I’m proud of our 25-year friendship. I’m certainly proud of all of the accomplishments we were able to accomplish together in the Trump White House. So I will never run away from that. So whether New Yorkers want to call me a Trump candidate, or a Giuliani candidate, all I can tell you is I am Andrew Giuliani. And Donald Trump is certainly part of what made Andrew Giuliani, and so is Rudy Giuliani and Donna Hanover. So I think that’s for New Yorkers to determine. But what I can tell you, more than anything, is I am focused on turning this great state around.”
Even though New York is a blue state, Governor Cuomo has lost support from the people who re-elected him three times. After numerous sexual harassment claims hit Cuomo and the horrible nursing home scandal where the governor placed COVID-19 patients in nursing homes, his support cratered.

While New York is a reliably blue state where Cuomo won reelection to a third term in 2018 by a massive 23-point margin, the governor has fallen under intense scrutiny, as 10 women have lodged allegations of sexual harassment against him, leading to an independent investigation by the state attorney general into the claims and an impeachment investigation in the State Assembly.
Cuomo has vehemently denied the allegations against him and has offered public support for the investigations into them.
Cuomo has also been politically wounded by the nursing home crisis, facing criticism after revelations that his administration concealed the full extent of nursing home-related deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic.
