Andrew Cuomo, Cynthia Nixon face off in NY gubernatorial primary

Andrew Cuomo, Cynthia Nixon face off in NY gubernatorial primary

A campaign spokesperson said that Schwartz was reviewing campaign literature and did not flip the mailer over to see the "negative side" of it, only the other side promoting Cuomo as a friend of the Jewish community.

Cuomo and Nixon agree that NY should adopt single-payer healthcare, but they differ on how to get there.

"You know we have more anti-semitic attacks in New York State now than we've had in years", Cuomo said.

Ms. Nixon gained fame in her role as Miranda Hobbes in HBO's "Sex and the City" and on Broadway has won two Tony Awards, including one previous year. Instead, they took a victory lap by saying Nixon's primary helped push Cuomo to the left. NY also does not have early voting.

Tip went to Twitter Monday (September 10) to show his support for Nixon and share footage of her encouraging marijuana legalization. The New York Times reported that the Cuomo administration offered incentives for the contractor to finish the job before the primary, and Cuomo's insistence that the state does not control the Tappan Zee contrasts with his self-presentation as an effective and engaged manager.

Should she pull off the impossible it will be a humiliating blow to a governor said to harbor presidential ambitions, and who served as a cabinet secretary under Bill Clinton at the tender age of 39.

Polls leading up to the election showed Cuomo with a commanding lead, which never dropped below 22% in any public surveys throughout the race.

Nixon went further, pushing for single payer health care, drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants, higher taxes on the rich, and a massive boost in education spending. To that end, she has run aggressively on a campaign to fix the subway, pinning the decrepit state of the system on her opponent. She said Cuomo has not aggressively fought for the funding in Albany. "I just think that there's been a lot of missed opportunities".

Nixon, a longtime activist and a former star of "Sex and the City", has hammered Cuomo over New York City's beleaguered subways and failures to address income inequality and corruption.

Political observers say that turnout is an overriding factor, but if damaging stories continue to come out about Cuomo, whether concerning the bridge, the mailer or other issues, "it's likely to affect at the margins the spread", said Levenson.

The 60-year-old governor spent much of the race touting his own liberal accomplishments such as same-sex marriage, gun control and paid family leave. "Polls close around 8PM".
