Name: Rudolph William Louis Giuliani
Born: May 28, 1944
Occupation: Attorney and politician
Rudy Giuliani was born in New York City, New York on May 28, 1944. He is the son of Harold Angelo Giuliani, a plumber and bartender, and Helen D’Avanzo.
Raised in a Roman Catholic household, Rudy attended the Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School. Upon his high school graduation, Rudy enrolled in Manhattan College, earning a degree in political science and philosophy. In 1965, he studied at New York University School of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctor degree in 1967.
Rudy was married to Regina Peruggi, his second cousin, from 1968 to 1982. At the end of his first marriage, he met local television personality Donna Hanover and the couple married in April 1984, later divorcing in 2001. They had two children, Andrew and Caroline. In 2003, Rudy married Judith Nathan, a salesperson, but the couple divorced in April 2018.
One of Rudy’s first jobs out of school was that of a clerk for Judge Lloyd Francis MacMahon. He eventually joined the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and was later promoted to Chief of the Narcotics Unit and became executive U.S. Attorney. During the era of President Ronald Reagan, Rudy was named an Associate Attorney General, which proved to be a successful decision because he successfully indicted 11 organized crime families.
By the end of the Reagan years, Rudy entered into private practice, joining the White & Case law firm in New York City.
In 1989, Rudy ran for mayor of New York City, but was defeated by David Dinkins. In 1993, Rudy ran for mayor again and defeated Mayor Dinkins, becoming the first New York City Republican mayor since 1965. Four years later, Rudy was overwhelmingly re-elected with 59 percent of the vote. His tenure as mayor was generally considered a successful one, barring his personal problems. Because of his popularity, he wanted to run for the U.S. Senate, but he withdrew his bid amid prostate cancer treatment and an extramarital affair. Instead he founded Giuliani Partners, a security consulting firm.
Becoming a national figure, and a staunch proponent of the Republican Party, Rudy ran for president in 2008, but he didn’t go very far in the GOP primaries. After his failed White House efforts, he returned to private practice and tried his hand at radio. He has since supported several Republican candidates vying for public office.
He returned to the national spotlight in 2016 when he endorsed President Donald Trump and became a campaign advisor. In 2018, Trump hired Rudy to be his personal attorney, which has so far been a failure, especially on the Stormy Daniels affair.
We estimate that Rudy Giuliani’s net worth is $45 million (2018).
So how much is $45 million really?
$45 million can pay for a presidential primary campaign. $45 million can also cover the cost of running for mayor of New York City.
