NEW YORK (AP) - Andrew Giuliani is announcing that he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor of New York.

That could set up a battle with third-term incumbent Democrat Andrew Cuomo.

The 35-year-old son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani announced his campaign in an interview with the New York Post.

Giuliani served as a White House aide under former President Donald Trump and has more recently been a commentator for the conservative network Newsmax.

He has never run for public office.

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin and former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino have previously announced they are running for the 2022 Republican nomination for New York governor.

Lewis County Sheriff Mike Carpinelli has also said he’s seeking the Republican nomination for governor.
