Andrew Giuliani has officially announced his campaign to challenge Andrew Cuomo for governor of New York. Giuliani is the son of former New York City mayor and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and says he is in the fight to make the state the “greatest” in the country.

Fox News reports:
“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!”
Giuliani worked in the White House Office of Public Liaison during the Trump administration.
“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,” Giuliani told Fox News. “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,” he said. “And Donald Trump is certainly part of what made Andrew Giuliani, and so is Rudy Giuliani and Donna Hanover.”
So far, Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin has also announced his campaign to challenge Cuomo. We will have to see which Republican ultimately wins Trump’s endorsement.
