Andrew Cuomo, Cynthia Nixon face off in NY gubernatorial primary

Andrew Cuomo, Cynthia Nixon face off in NY gubernatorial primary

Cuomo, who always led in the polls and outspent his rival more than 8 to 1, seldom mentioned Nixon by name during an often-nasty campaign, instead touting his experience, achievements in two terms as governor and his work to push back against President Donald Trump. Nixon called Cuomo a "bully" and a liar, while Cuomo's campaign has dismissed Nixon as "unhinged".

Insurgent candidates can benefit from an incumbents lack of urgency.

Cuomo's primary challenger, actress and progressive Cynthia Nixon, was out campaigning in the Bronx with congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In addition to the email, the Cuomo aide attempted to pitch the reporter through text messages, including a text that said, "Hey I got something for you on nixon...."

"I just think she has the right vision and the right morals to lead NY in a direction that it has not been going in for the past years with Cuomo", said Ian Greer, a 22-year-old fashion designer. And by registering their displeasure with the incumbent, voters revived Kennedy's campaign by giving him an 18-point win.

With registered Democrats outnumbering Republicans more than 2 to 1 in New York, Cuomo becomes the automatic front-runner in November's matchup against Republican Marc Molinaro and independent Mayor Stephanie Miner. He leads likely Democratic voters by 41 points over Nixon, with leads ranging from 20 to 77 points across all geographic, racial and gender categories. NY also does not have early voting. "There's no way to predetermine who the electorate will be and that's why certain local races you have huge challenges in predicting results", he said.

"If it was all about name recognition", he said earlier this year, "then I'm hoping Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Billy Joel don't get into the race". "That's why we play the game and why we have elections".

The actor and activist also lambasted the governor for pushing for the speedy opening of the new Mario Cuomo Bridge only to have it remain closed out of safety concerns. The mailer had charged that she had been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism" and attempted to link her to the ongoing movement to boycott Israel.

Michael Valdes told CBS2's Jenna DeAngelis he was voting for Nixon because he's backing her progressive values.

Nixon, who is pushing for universal rent control, single-payer health care, new funding for public schools and a large-scale renewal of New York City's broken-down subway system, which is controlled by the state, frequently describes Cuomo's record as insufficiently ambitious for one of the country's bluest states. Cuomo's effort to defuse the controversy by claiming that he knew nothing about it did not convince critics who noted the hold he has on the party apparatus.

At their sole debate, tensions between Cuomo and Nixon boiled over.

She also has two children from her former relationship with Danny Mozes and in June, she revealed that her eldest child is transgender.

The victor of the Democratic primary will face Republican Keith Wofford in the attorney general's race in the heavily blue state. Cuomo came into office eight years ago promising to reform the state government.

But beyond structural issues, polling sites in New York City had serious problems on Thursday. A Democratic Party mailer implied she was anti-Semitic, sparking a furious backlash but Cuomo pleaded innocent. But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything... "I think it was inappropriate". "He controls the state committee", Nixon said.

"We've seen elections where not a lot of people are turning out, and that's just bad for Democracy", said Gov. Cuomo.

Despite the attempts to to have the Post publish the accusation, which is central to the Democratic Party mailer that targeted 7,000 households, Cuomo has vehemently denied he knew about the mailer. But Sanders steered clear of the governor's race. The question remains whether that wave will be enough to carry Nixon to victory.
