Nixon hopes for big upset as primary battle with Cuomo ends

The 10th circle of hell The 10th circle of hell

Amy Schumer said she planned to vote for Cuomo, but ultimately said she went with Nixon.

Underwood says she hopes it's clear the office "is the sum of all its staff". "That's why we play the game and why we have elections".

He invited Clinton to a celebratory opening of the final span of the new Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge over the Hudson - only to keep the bridge closed after engineers warned that pieces from the old, largely disassembled Tappan Zee Bridge could hit the new structure. Schwartz, who has been a close confidante of Cuomo since the pair first worked together in 1994, then signed off on it, and the New York Democratic Committee Paid $11,000 to print and distribute it, reported the New York Times.

Cuomo also claimed to have no knowledge of a Democratic Party mailer that questioned Nixon's support for Jewish people - despite Cuomo's control of the party and a recent $2.5 million contribution to its campaign operations. 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.

It's possible that no matter who wins, both Cuomo and Nixon could appear on the November ballot anyway, thanks to third-party nominations.

While he may have won, Cuomo, a former US housing secretary and son of the late Gov. Mario Cuomo, did not escape the primary unscathed. Nixon cast her ballot in Manhattan and greeted subway riders. "Sometimes primary voting is all about sending a message", Cunningham added.

While he seldom mentions her name, Cuomo has taken her seriously as a political threat. Along with fellow rapper Despot, El-P is an investor in the well-reviewed New York Jewish deli Frankel's, which is helmed by a sibling duo that includes Alex Frankel of the DFA act Holy Ghost!. By now, his failure to do so creates a liability among voters on the left. Cuomo's inability to win voters over on the issue - and only a slight 2-point lead on "advancing progressive issues" - are the only two areas where the poll shows Cuomo looking vulnerable.

"If you hock the house on Cynthia Nixon you will be homeless on Friday", Mr. Sheinkopf said. But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything...

Cuomo agreed that a single-payer system works "in theory" and is the right idea "long term", but coming up with the money to fund that transition-$200 billion-would eclipse the current state budget-$170 billion. I think the mailer was a mistake.

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. And progressives may not be as powerful in a statewide primary as in certain districts.

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