The son of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is reportedly planning to challenge Governor Andrew Cuomo for the state's top spot during the 2022 gubernatorial race.

Andrew Giuliani, Rudy Giuliani's son, formerly worked as a White House staffer during the Trump administration. He told the Washington Examiner that he was planning to challenge Mr Cuomo in 2022.

"Outside of anybody named Trump, I think I have the best chance to win and take the state back," Mr Giuliani said.

Numerous sexual misconduct allegations paired with an ongoing scandal revolving around the governor's office covering up nursing home deaths during the early part of the coronavirus pandemic have left the governor vulnerable, though it is unclear how much of that will stick to him come 2022.
