Rudy Giuliani on Joe Lhota: If He Doesn't Win Today, He May Run and Win for NYC Mayor in Four Years

Trailing by 40 points


Rudy Giuliani endorsed Joe Lhota before he was actually running for mayor, and he'll be by his former deputy mayor's side to the very end – even if that means waiting another four years. While campaigning with Lhota on Monday, Giuliani said he "hopes" and "believes" he'll beat de Blasio, but if Lhota is unable to overcome his 40 point deficit in the polls, it won't be the end of the world. "If he wants to run in four more years, he should run in four more years. He's a very good candidate," said Giuliani, adding that there's a "consolation prize."
