Andrew Giuliani, Son of Former New York City Mayor, Announces 2022 Bid for Governor
In the past few weeks, Giuliani has hinted on his bid for the New York City Governor in 2022. He made remarks on the Washington Examiner that he believes he has a great chance of clinching the seat.
On Tuesday, he made it official that he will be vying for the top seat in the city come 2022. The 35 years old Giuliani has never served in any political seat in the past and is considered to have insignificant political experience. He made a launch of his campaign through his website that was only updated with very little information about himself. In fact the site was updated with only his biography.
Andrew served as an aide of former president Donald Trump and most of the people in New York City believe that he made a major contribution in preserving very many of MTA jobs. He made the contribution by implementing CARES Act funding. At one point during the Trump’s administration, he served in the Treasury Department and the Health and Human services. During his tenure at the department he followed up and facilitated the process of taking back the $3.9 million that had been taken from the First responders of the 9/11 attack that had taken 13 years before refund.
Andrew seemed so confident of winning the seat in New York City when speaking to the Washington Examiner. He argued that he had very high chances considering that he was competing with a wounded democratic candidate in the name of the current Governor Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo has expressed his plan to seek re-election in the 2022 election but his bid has faced several hurdles especially the allegations that his administration intentionally undercounted the numbers of Covid-19 deaths in New York City nursing homes and several allegations from women he allegedly harassed sexually.
As 2022 knocks, a lot is expected in terms of political declarations for the Governor seat and Andrew seems confident that whoever candidate comes in as a competitor, he has what it takes to beat all of them.
