Dioguardi, Idol Dad, Runs for N.Y. Senate

Tuesday, 16 Mar 2010 09:08 AM


Tuesday morning, former New York Congressman Joe DioGuardi is expected to announce his bid for the U.S. Senate seat held by Kirsten Gillibrand.

DioGuardi is scheduled to appear on Fox & Friends morning show at 8:20 a.m. before heading to Grand Central Station for an official press conference.

A fiscal conservative who foresaw the national debt crisis, DioGuardi was the first practicing CPA elected to Congress during the 1980s, when he represented the suburbs north of New York City for two terms.

In recent weeks, DioGuardi’s speeches have urged Americans to take action on improving fiscal responsibility, reforming federal budgeting and accounting, and reducing the national debt.

His celebrity daughter, American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi recently told the New York Post that she supported her father and added, "he has more energy than anyone I know. When he is working, he is Superman."
