Andrew Giuliani officially throws his hat in the ring for NY governor

Andrew Giuliani is following in the footsteps of his father Rudy Giuliani as he announced his gubernatorial bid in New York Tuesday. He will be running against four other Republican candidates and incumbent Governor Cuomo.

Most recently, Giuliani served as special assistant to former President Trump in 2019. Before that, he was Associate Director of the Office of Public Liaison for the Trump administration.

While the other gubernatorial candidates are not free from scandal, Giuliani will likely have to answer to reported investigations into his father. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents recently seized father Rudy Giuliani’s computers in an alleged probe into Giuliani for reportedly illegally lobbying as a foreign agent.

“The search warrants involve only one indication of an alleged incident of failure to register as a foreign agent,” Robert Costello wrote in a statement. “The Biden department of justice has completely ignored clear evidence in texts and emails on Hunter Biden’s hard drive of failing to register numerous times as a foreign agent.”
