Steve Benn visited Andrew Giuliani’s fundraiser at the DC Federal Court on Wednesday at former President Donald Trump’s New Jersey Golf Course – praising him as “the next governor of New York to save New York.”
Benn said Giuliani was “born of the courage of two fighters” – citing a source, citing Trump and his father, former NYC mayor and Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer.
A source told The Post that a crowd of about 100 supporters gathered at the Trump National Badminster Golf Club Campaign Suarez, hosted by Rudy and former NYPD commissioner Bernard Kirk.
But earlier that day, DC District Court Judge Carl Nichols Slapped Benn’s motion to dismiss the criminal charges against him, when he refused to comply with the subpoena issued by the House Select Committee last fall, which will be investigated on January 6, 2021. Happened during the uprising in the US capital. He is due to appear in court on July 18.
Another source said Benn left his daily, hour-long afternoon radio show “War Room” and went straight from Court House to Garden State.
“We need Andrew Giuliani as the next governor of New York to save New York,” Andrew Giuliani told The Post in a phone interview on Thursday. “It was great for Steve to do that and for someone I was looking for – it was great to be able to do that after being in federal court this morning.”
Sources said Benn praised GOP candidate Trump’s four years in the White House and noted that Giolani appeared as an “adult” during the June 13 Republican primary debate.
Benn was fired in 2017 as Trump’s chief strategist. But he also quietly kept in touch with officials and Trump himself, especially until January 6, which left him in legal trouble.
Meanwhile, Trump himself appeared briefly for the younger Giuliani, although it was not immediately clear if he would attend.
“I hear you’re doing very well in the election,” Trump pointed to Andrew in front of a crowd.
Trump has refused to endorse any candidate before the June 28 primary election – neither Giolani nor the GOP’s representative, Lee Zelden.
Giolani’s registered Republican voter rating ranges from 50% to 28%, which is the highest among the four GOP primary candidates, according to a new poll by Siyana College on Thursday morning.
It has been compared to rival candidate Zelden, who had a 36% margin compared to 14%, Rob Estorino with a margin of 32% to 12%, and Harry Wilson with a margin of 18% to 12%.
Giuliani – whose campaign is struggling to raise funds – estimates that he raised just over $ 150,000 in the last minute before the election.
Preliminary voting will begin on Saturday, June 18, and primary elections will be held on Tuesday, June 28.
