The campaign announced that Robert Duvall has given Giuliani his nod, and that he and his wife Luciani will host of fund-raiser for him at their Virginia home later this month.
“Rudy has consistently proven he’s ready to confront tough challenges,” Duvall said in a statement. “I don’t normally get involved in politics, but I think the stakes are too high this election. Mayor Giuliani has the executive experience, proven record and bold vision needed to lead our country. Luciana and I are proud to support him.”
Guiliani said in a statement, “Their willingness to not only offer their support, but to open their home is a tremendous contribution. I am excited to have the Duvalls on our team.”
Duvall received the first of six Oscar nominations for “The Godfather.” He won an Oscar for his role in “Tender Mercies.”
