Rudy Giuliani Hosts His Son Andrew’s Government Candidacy Fundraiser at Trump Golf Course
Former President Donald Trump is lending his posh New Jersey golf course for an upcoming fundraiser for his former aide and New York GOP Governor hopeful Andrew Giuliani.
Rudy Giuliani will co-host the June 15 event for his son with former NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik at the Trump National Bedminster Golf Club, according to a copy of the invite obtained by The Post.
“I am delighted that he is giving such attention and honored that he is continuing to give the excellent advice he has given throughout the campaign. He has been tremendous throughout it all,” the youngster said. Giuliani, who worked for Trump in the White House, to the Post.
His campaign said donors will have to shell out $15,000 for dinner with the hosts and $1,000 to attend the cocktail hour and speeches beforehand.
The June 28 primary is a four-way contest between Giuliani, preferred party representative Lee Zeldin, former Westchester County executive and failed 2014 gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino and northern businessman of the State Harry Wilson.
Trump did not endorse New York’s Republican primary race, although he previously endorsed Zeldin during his congressional re-election campaign.
The ex-commander-in-chief also authorized a pro-Zeldin fundraiser at his posh Mar-a-Lago hotel in Palm Beach, Florida last April.
Ed Rollins, a longtime Republican strategist and former senior adviser to President Ronald Reagan, said even if Trump made an endorsement, he wouldn’t get much mileage in a blue state like New York.
“I think the reality is that New York is where Trump has lived and thrived for many years, but he doesn’t own it and I don’t think he’s going to make a big difference – and that’s part of his tendency to disagree,” he said. says La Poste.
“I think Zeldin has the advantages of party types and money types.”
Zeldin has about $3 million in his campaign account, compared to just over $312,000 for Giuliani, according to the state Board of Elections’ latest campaign finance report. However, Giuliani also pointed to positive polling numbers showing likely GOP voters supporting him over Zeldin in a recent Zogby poll.
He enjoys great notoriety thanks to his father, who became “America’s mayor” when New York got rid of the 9/11 attacks while in office and who more recently worked as a lawyer Trump staff. He also led the ex-president’s challenges to the 2020 election results.
“It’s certainly funny when the former president of the United States is interested in your race and he’s someone you’ve known for 20 years,” he said.
But he admitted he still doesn’t know if Trump will be at the event.
“He definitely wants to be here,” he added.
A representative for Trump did not return a request for comment to The Post.
