The operator of an aging nuclear power plant near New York City has hired former Mayor Rudy Giuliani to vouch for its safety in a new ad campaign.

The ads for the Indian Point plant will begin running next week on cable television and in newspapers, according to a spokesman for Entergy.     

The operator is seeking to renew its licenses for its two reactors.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has called for the plant to be shut down due to safety concerns.    

Entergy spokesman James Steets tells The New York Times the campaign is aimed to reassure the public about the plant's safety.     

A spokesman for Giuliani's consulting firm, Giuliani Partners, declined to comment.     

Giuliani has previously done promotional work for Indian Point.
