LIers head to the polls on primary day

Cuomo NIxon Meet In Only Televised Primary Debate

The shout-out even sparked a reaction from the former "Sex in the City" star.

Nixon was joined by Councilman Jumaane Williams, who is running for lieutenant governor, in Queens.

Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon is not the only celebrity with eyebrow-raising food tastes.

Democratic voters in NY will decide on Thursday whether Governor Andrew Cuomo deserves a third term or should be replaced by actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, a first-time candidate mounting a challenge from the left.

Still, Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf said Mr. Cuomo was given a gift when Ms. Nixon ran too far to the left.

But Ms. Nixon, who is gay, says polling doesn't capture hundreds of thousands of people who have registered to vote over the last two years, and she points to a recent mailer from Cuomo allies casting her as anti-Semitic as evidence the race is close. Party Director Geoff Berman later said the mailer was a mistake, and Cuomo's spokeswoman acknowledged that two former aides volunteering on the campaign were behind the piece.

A closer look at 2017/18 crime stats across SA
Eastern Cape had five police stations - Mthatha (160), Bethelsdorp (127), KwaZakhele (104), Lusikisiki (97) and Ngqeleni (90). Murders of women spiked by 11% with 2930 murders reported in 2017-2018 compared with 2639 in the previous period.

While a state Democratic Party official said earlier in the week that it would let Nixon send out a mailer of her choosing to the same population, her campaign manager, Rebecca Katz, told Gothamist, "there's been no formal offer", and they received no response to their request for a robocall denouncing the flier's incorrect claims.

"To be informed about Andrew Cuomo is to want a change", she said.

"I think there can be no more patriotic thing to do than to go out and be speaking to New Yorkers about a NY that works for all of us", Nixon said.

Gov. Cuomo has maintained a double digit lead over Nixon in the polls. They might not think she can win, but a vote for her might convince be a warning to Cuomo to clean up his act.

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. Cuomo came into office eight years ago promising to reform the state government. She later paired up with attorney general hopeful Zephyr Teachout in Manhattan.

While Cuomo has inveighed against President Donald Trump's policies repeatedly, the anti-Trump wave of progressive engagement has created a disconnect between Cuomo's record, which is fairly moderate, and the feisty attitude of the current Democratic base.
