Presidency of Nicolas SarkozyEdit
On 3 September 2012, he unexpectedly announced his intention to run for the presidency of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP). Guaino stated that his aim was to represent the gaullist component of UMP's heritage in this internal election. He failed to get enough endorsements and announced his endorsement of Jean-François Copé.
In 2017, he announced that he would run for reelection to the National Assembly, but in Paris's 2nd constituency. His party, The Republicans (formerly the UMP), however nominated former Ecology Minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet to that seat. He ran under the miscellaneous right banner and lost in the first round with 4.51% of the vote, finishing seventh. Gilles Le Gendre defeated Kosciusko-Morizet in the second round.
