Mysterious white powder sent today to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has tested not-toxic, according to police and Mr. Giuliani’s security team.
The powder was sent to Mr. Giuliani’s office on 49th Street today, according to an FBI spokesman, which was investigating the incident along with the NYPD and Joint Terrorist Task Force.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has a theory for why the press has been so aggressively covering New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” scandal: presidential politics.
According to Mr. Giuliani, one of the few Republicans to defend Mr. Christie in the immediate aftermath of the scandal last week, media outlets like The New York Times have been ripping into Mr. Christie because he is “the only guy” that rivals Hillary Clinton in the 2016 race.
Bill Bratton is a professional crime-stopper. Anthony Shorris is a professional manager and a government insider. Both are welcome additions to the incoming administration of Bill de Blasio, a man who campaigned as a government outsider, as a critic of the sort of policing Mr. Bratton has championed.
If at first you don't succeed...
Politically speaking, Bill de Blasio is the luckiest man on the face of the Earth. He will inherit a thriving, dynamic, creative city that is the envy of its competitors. His two most recent predecessors were not so fortunate when they took the oath of office for the first time—Rudy Giuliani was bequeathed a city deemed to be ungovernable, and Mike Bloomberg began his tenure in the shadow of 9/11.
Rudy Giuliani this evening suggested that Joe Lhota might follow in his footsteps and run again for mayor in 2017 if he loses his bid tomorrow, as the polls suggest is likely.
“If he wants to run in four more years, he should run in four more years. He’s a very good candidate,” Mr. Giuliani told Politicker before the pair kicked off an evening of last-minute campaigning in Lower Manhattan.
Bill de Blasio tarred Joe Lhota for his close association with former Mayor Rudy Giuliani at a Queens rally in support of the Democrat’s mayoral bid today, slamming his Republican rival in a neighborhood where few recall the ex-mayor fondly.
While speaking at a canvassing kickoff event in the predominately black Rochdale Village, Mr. de Blasio egged on his supporters by name-dropping Mr. Giuliani twice–eliciting boos each time.
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani thinks Chris Christie has the potential to win the White House.
Campaigning with the New Jersey governor in Bergen County today, Mr. Giuliani, himself a failed presidential contender, told Politicker’s sister site, PolitickerNJ, that he has no doubt Mr. Christie could be elected president.
Cats in the Bag
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani returned to the campaign trail this afternoon with Joe Lhota, his protégé and candidate in the mayor’s race, and proclaimed that yesterday’s decision by a federal appeals court to halt the implementation of stop-and-frisk reform would fundamentally shake things up in Mr. Lhota’s favor.
John Catsimatidis is not impressed with his ex-rival’s campaign for mayor.
The supermarket and oil magnate, who lost the Republican primary to Joe Lhota earlier this year, briefly discussed his former challenger this morning, telling Politcker he would have run a far stronger campaign against Democrat Bill de Blasio, who is dominating Mr. Lhota in the polls.
