Cuomo-Nixon showdown in NY governor's race goes to voters

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

The Snatched star also revealed that she will be voting for Zephyr Teachout for Attorney General of NY and Jumaane D. Williams for Lieutenant Governor.

The stakes are high for Mr. Cuomo even if he wins, according to Jeanne Zaino, professor of political science at Iona College in NY.

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

"Larry Schwartz, who serves on our campaign in a volunteer capacity, was reviewing mail pieces in an ad hoc fashion, but he only saw the positive section of the mailer and never saw the negative section", said Cuomo campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith.

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.

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. Williams, who would be the state's first black lieutenant governor, has attacked Hochul for conservative votes and statements she made while representing a Republican-leaning House seat and argued that she has enabled Cuomo's worst instincts. Cuomo maintains a 40 point lead over his challenger, according to the latest polling.

Mallya backtracks after saying he met Arun Jaitley before leaving India
The sensational claims of Mallya, outside a London court on Wednesday, sparked a fire in Indian political discourse. He later said he never met Arun Jaitley formally. "The allegations are media created allegations, unfortunately".

"I didn't know about the mailer; I heard about the mailer, I haven't seen the mailer", Cuomo said at a press conference on Sunday.

He wrote Monday on Twitter that he didn't know "who this brilliant lady is", but added that she had his vote, as he posted a video in which Nixon said it was time for NY to legalize marijuana. "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said.

Polls in New York City are open 6 a.m.to 9 p.m.

Cuomo's campaign said the "inappropriate" mailer was "wrong" and should not have gone out.

Dealing with state corruption was the only issue that likely Democratic primary voters saw Nixon doing a better job on than Cuomo in the September 10 Siena poll, 42-39 percent.

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.
