LIers head to the polls on primary day

Lox of love Cynthia Nixon defends cinnamon raisin bagel with smoked salmon New York State gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon like her lox and capers on a bagel

NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon called on her primary opponent, sitting Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to apologize for a mailer paid for by the state Democratic Party headed by Cuomo which questioned her support for issues important to Jewish voters. The "Trainwreck" star, a cousin of New York Sen.

Challenging incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as you may have heard, is Cynthia Nixon, who may or may not be on her way in her transition from Emmy- and Tony-award winning actress to politician.

"I know the polls are not showing it but we are feeling such momentum, such momentum not just in New York City but across the state", said Nixon.

If voters think that Cuomo is going to win by a landslide, many of them might stay home, while inspiring a higher turnout among Nixon supporters rallied by a last-ditch effort to salvage her candidacy.

And in July, Mr. Cuomo was dragged into ugly headlines after the architect of his six-year-old plan to revitalize upstate NY - dubbed "Buffalo Billion" - was convicted in a bid-rigging scheme involving state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

At their sole debate, tensions between Cuomo and Nixon boiled over.

Likely to work in Cuomo's favor is that NY allows only registered Democrats to vote in the primary.

"Based on my experience as state chair, there is no way that a mailer was designed and then sent out and paid for without the explicit consent of Andrew Cuomo or one of his top lieutenants", Miner said.

A mailer from the state Democratic Party that suggested that Nixon is anti-Semitic also backfired for Cuomo.

In the video, Schiff said that people in NY are "tired of the cynical, self-serving corporate Democrats" and that they want to see "courageous, honest Democrats". "Sometimes primary voting is all about sending a message", Cunningham added.

Making a pit stop at the Upper West Side eatery on Sunday while on the campaign trail, Cynthia Nixon ordered a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox and capers. Maloney, one of just 12 Democrats who represents districts won in 2016 by Donald Trump, must abandon his House race if he becomes the nominee for attorney general. Leecia Eve, a former Cuomo aide, was in fourth.

'Thursday we vote. Everyone!

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

Cuomo's advocacy for same-sex marriage, gun control and other progressive causes might bolster him against Nixon.

But the perception that James was too close to Cuomo created an opening for Teachout, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2014 and for Congress in 2016.
