Former President Donald Trump and Andrew Giuliani talk outside the White House in 2017. Andrew Giuliani is said to be considering a run for New York governor.

To the editor:

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew announced himself as potential candidate for the Republican Party as candidate for governor.  It  belongs in the comics section. Young Andrew is attempting to trade in on his famous father’s name. You need more than inheritance of a name to be successful in any enterprise. He has never built a business from scratch, created significant number of new good paying jobs, balanced a budget or managed a small government agency or business.  
There are hundreds of better qualified legitimate candidates with real experience to run for governor.  Andrew’s ego is greater than the current $212 billion state budget.  He needs a reality check.  State Republican Party leaders, office holders and 2,745,827 registered GOP voters will pass on this offer.  They know a joke when they see one.
