Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has begun campaigning for mayoral candidate Joe Lhota, penning a fundraising letter that praised him for standing up "to the destructive policies of tax-and-spend politicians who put New York and America in peril."
Lhota, who worked as a deputy mayor under Giuliani and later headed the MTA, is considered the frontrunner to win the Republican nomination. He would then face off against Christine Quinn or whoever else comes out of the Democratic primary.
"Make no mistake," Giuliani said Saturday in his letter. "If you don't think the city can slip back to its unmanageable, ungovernable ways, just listen to Joe's Democratic opponents."
