The campaign for Republican attorney general candidate Todd P’Pool announced Thursday that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be in Louisville to back the GOP challenger.
Giuliani will join the Hopkins County Attorney at a rally on October 26 that will include supporters and public safety officials.
P’Pool says the former Republican presidential candidate has a record of leadership among law enforcement and claims his opponent, Democratic incumbent Jack Conway has failed to deliver.
“Mayor Giuliani is a role model and textbook example of defined leadership,” P’Pool said, noting he has received the endorsement from the Kentucky FOP. “At a time when Kentucky suffers from a lack of strong leadership—especially in the attorney general’s office—it is an extreme honor to be joined in Kentucky by America’s mayor.”
Several high-profile Republicans have already visited the commonwealth to join P’Pool on the campaign trail, including former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and current attorneys general Scott Pruitt of Oklahoma and Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia.
The Conway campaign has not responded to a request for comment.
