Andrew Giuliani, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s son, announced on Tuesday that he is running for governor of New York in 2022.

Giuliani, 35, has limited experience in politics. He had previously served as a special assistant to the former President Donald Trump while his father, Rudy Giuliani, served as Trump’s personal lawyer.

Giuliani has been hinting at a bid for governor for weeks until he made it official by launching a campaign website Tuesday.

“For New Yorkers, Andrew helped to preserve thousands of MTA jobs by facilitating CARES Act funding,” Giuliani’s website reads. “He also worked with the Treasury Department and Health and Human Services to ensure that the $3.9 million that had been inadvertently taken out of the 9/11 First Responders Fund over thirteen years and three administrations was completely refunded.”
