The primary election is set for June 22.
Giuliani, the former New York mayor, tweeted, “I’ve endorsed Curtis Sliwa for #NYCMAYOR. Make sure you vote for him on June 22nd or early vote starting on Saturday. He is the one who can make NYC safe again.”
Sliwa is founder of the Guardian Angels, a private, unarmed crime-prevention group. He is also a radio talk show host. Sliwa is running in the primary against Fernando Mateo, founder of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, The Hill noted.
