In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Giuliani son Andrew getting ready to run against Cuomo for NY governor

How is Andrew Cuomo still governor? Where is the daily drumbeat of outrage by Democrats?

Sure, some of them called for him to resign, and then, radio silence. And some, like President Biden and Vice President Harris, chickened out.

Where is Hollywood? CNN? MSNBC?

Anyway, he’s still there, and he wants to run for reelection, apparently. The son of Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is going to challenge him.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Andrew Giuliani, a former top aide to President Donald Trump and son of “America’s Mayor,” is “heavily considering” a bid for governor of New York in 2022, potentially setting up an epic clash between the two biggest political families in recent New York history.

“I plan to run,” Giuliani told Secrets.

“Outside of anybody named Trump, I think I have the best chance to win and take the state back, and I think there’s an opportunity in 2022 with a wounded Democratic candidate, whether it’s going to be Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo, whether it’s going to be a radical [Attorney General] Letitia James, whether it’s going to be a no-name lieutenant governor, I think there’s a very, very real chance to win,” he added.

A Giuliani-Cuomo race would be a Titanic battle of New York families, a liberal-conservative fight that the state hasn’t seen in years. Cuomo is the son of former three-term New York Gov. Mario Cuomo.

Cuomo is expected to run for a fourth term, but he has been bruised by his mishandling of the coronavirus crisis and a sex scandal. Political betting sites suggest his odds of winning a fourth term are poor.

  1. The NYC Mayor’s race will be interesting too. Yang is one of de Blasio’s challengers in the Democratic primary. Curtis Sliwa, the founder of Guardian Angles, is in the Republican primary.

  2. I wish Andrew Giuliani absolutely all the best in winning the NYState governorship. I lived in NYState (Albany area) when Republican Pataki defeated Mario Cuomo for the governorship. May this happen again.

    It won’t be easy since NYCity carries a disproportionately high weight in election results due to its massive population most of whom are poor, on welfare and are here illegally. They vote Demoncrats thus the tight control by demoncrats on NYCity and, by extension, state government politics via the state legislature.

    The biggest complaint I heard from upstate New Yorkers when I lived there was the demoncrat control of the Legislature due to the heavily demoncratic control of NYCity “voters”. Upstate New Yorkers wanted New York divided into 2 states, Upstate New York and NYCity (a city-state). Of course, the demoncrat control legislature would never even entertain such a proposal. They need the tax dollars from upstate New Yorkers to finance their massive NYState welfare programs.

    PS I got the hell out of NYState. I went to TX. The difference was like night (NY) and day (TX). It was like a heavy weight being lifted off my shoulders. It felt good to stop paying punishing high taxes, money that went to support massive welfare programs.

    1. JG,

      Eastern Washington State and Oregon want to join Idaho because they feel they have no say with Seattle & Portland calling the shots.

      1. Yes, and I feel very much for those people. They feel helpless. They feel ignored by the radical left politicians who have total control due their control of the heavily populated cities. Last I heard their attempts for a way out, that is, join Idaho, is going nowhere just like upstate NY in their desire to be separated from NYCity.

  3. As a native New Yawker and still resident and business owner, even a sane Dem in Albany would be welcome. Hot off the press: Rep. Lee Zelden announced this morning he will run for NY Gov…. Hallelujah!
