Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon splits NY voters

  • Cynthia Nixon’s Controversial Bagel Order Approved By Deli Connoisseur El-P

The charge is a familiar one among NY progressives, who fault Cuomo for the state's failure to pass its own DREAM Act, legislation to protect abortion rights and serious campaign finance revisions. We'll look into the issue at your polling site and make sure you're able to vote.

Cuomo will now face Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro in November's general election, a race in which he will be the overwhelming favorite.

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.

The Working Families Party, a progressive political party in NY that switched its allegiance in 2018 from Cuomo to Nixon, seemed resigned to a Nixon loss the night before the primary.

Not only does he need to win big, but his lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul, is facing a tight race. And he increasingly made the race about pushing back against the policies of Trump and other Republicans in Washington.

"That's my go-to. It's not uncooked oatmeal but it's pretty delicious and I say - don't yuck my yum".

New York's attorney general is congratulating the four Democrats running in a primary to replace her and says she's proud to have kept the office going after Eric Schneiderman's (SHNEYE'-dur-muhnz) sudden resignation in May.

Some primary voters might be inspired by the controversies to hit Cuomo with "a "rolled up newspaper across the nose" by voting for Nixon, according to political consultant Bill Cunningham, who worked in the past for Gov. Mario Cuomo".

The victor takes on Republican Keith Wofford in the general election. During their only debate, Nixon didn't pull punches in calling Cuomo a "liar" and "corrupt".

Cuomo 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. Leecia Eve, a former Cuomo aide, was in fourth.

She also minimized not having experience in government.

The mailer was delivered to some 7,000 NY households on Saturday, days before New York's state primary on September 13.

Nixon's campaign slammed what they called the governor's "secret rally", saying in part, "The blowback from Cuomo's bridge and mailer scandals have forced him into hiding, while Cynthia is gaining momentum and talking to excited voters at five different campaign stops".
