Cuomo holds off challenge from Nixon in NY Democratic governor's race

The 10th circle of hell

Nixon, a longtime education activist and actress best known for her Emmy-winning role as lawyer Miranda Hobbes on HBO's "Sex and the City", was counting on a boost from liberals looking to oust establishment politicians.

Mr. Cuomo, meanwhile, is angling for a landslide victory that could bolster his ambitions of facing President Trump in a 2020 White House bid.

"There is a divisiveness that is coming out of Washington that I think is cancerous to our nation", Cuomo said.

Mr. Cuomo held a massive 41-point lead over Ms. Nixon in a Siena College poll released this week. One customer confronted Nixon who assured them she knew what she was ordering. But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything...

Nixon, who is gay and attends Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, an LGBT synagogue, announced her bid for the Democratic nomination for NY governor in March.

His tenure has been marked by a cloud of corruption in recent months. The latter has garnered her perhaps the most traction.

New Yorker reactions were mixed, with some lashing out in disgust and others defending Nixon's choice in bagel combo.

"With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can't take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who won't stand strong for our Jewish communities", the mailer said.

Outside Wadleigh High School in Harlem, four out of five voters who stopped to speak to AFP said they voted for Nixon.

"To break through, that requires a lot of money and organization", he told AFP. "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said.

But beyond structural issues, polling sites in New York City had serious problems on Thursday.

She wanted to be their governor.

The race for attorney general also could leave Mr. Cuomo smarting.

Cuomo rallied candidates and hundreds of other Democrats at an event inside Teamsters Local 456 union hall in Elmsford one day before the primary.

On Wednesday night, Nicki Minaj endorsed current Governor Andrew Cuomo on Twitter. "And a NY progressive is not just a dreamer, but we are doers", Cuomo said at a campaign rally the night before the vote. The candidates include Fordham University law professor Zephyr Teachout, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Hillary Clinton adviser Leecia Eve. Cuomo's spokeswoman later acknowledged that two former aides volunteering on the campaign were behind the piece.

Nixon now must decide whether she wants to run on the November ballot as a candidate for the third-party Working Families Party, thanks to a NY state law that allows candidates to run on multiple ballot lines. Those races had not been called shortly after polls closed.

"But no matter what happens, Donald Trump will have a headache", he said.
