“I plan to run,” Giuliani told the conservative crooked Washington examiner. He maintained that he had a good chance of removing a “wounded” Cuomo.
“Outside of someone named Trump, I think I have the best chance of winning and taking the state back, and I think there is a possibility in 2022 with a wounded Democratic candidate, whether it be government . [Andrew] Cuomo, whether it becomes a radical [Attorney General] Letitia James, whether it be a non-name lieutenant governor, I think there is a very, very real chance of winning, ”he said, referring to James, who has emerged as a top GOP antagonist.
“I think I can win the race,” Giuliania added. “I think I’m the right candidate, and this is the right time to help change the state of New York, and we have a playbook that works.”
Giuliani told the examiner that he plans to launch his campaign formally later this month after a meeting with the New York State Republican Committee. He also said that Trump has advised him, although he noted that the former president has not yet declared which candidate he will support.
Giuliani, who also works as a political commentator at the conservative news outlet Newsmax, has close ties to Trump, a relationship that may love him for the Republican base but may prove toxic in a parliamentary election in a state that the former president lost. with more than 23 points in November.
Republicans have generally struggled to get ahead in the Empire State in recent years. The party has not won a government contest since 2002 or any state office for 15 years. Democrats also have supermoritas in both chambers of the state legislature.
But Republicans say 2022 may mark their best chance of depriving Cuomo if he seeks a fourth term.
The governor has been criticized for allegations of sexual harassment by a number of women against him. He also faces a growing furor over revelations that his office deliberately underestimated the number of coronavirus deaths in New York nursing homes.
James is leading an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against him, and the state assembly is conducting a persecution investigation of Cuomo, a sign of the governor’s deteriorating support in the state legislature.
