Andrew Cuomo easily defeats Cynthia Nixon in NY gubernatorial primary

Cynthia Nixon ordered a bizarre bagel that consisted of lox capers and cream cheese on a cinnamon raisin bagel on Monday. Nixon posted this

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.

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

But ex-Syracuse mayor and former state Democratic co-chair Stephanie Miner, who's making an independent run for governor, on Tuesday described the campaign email and the party mailer as a "coordinated attack".

The mailer said Nixon opposes funding for Jewish schools, supports "racist, xenophobic" calls to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians, and that she has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism". Nixon called Cuomo a "bully" and a liar, while Cuomo's campaign has dismissed Nixon as "unhinged".

Cynthia Nixon, the telegenic, left-leaning "Sex and the City" actress turned activist, faces the electoral battle of her life Thursday in her long-shot bid to unseat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

But there's a silver lining for Democrats unhappy with Thursday's results: turnout was way up, which bodes well for November. Unsuccessful in the challenge, and in a subsequent race for New York's 19th Congressional District seat in 2016, Teachout is now in the midst of a tight race for the state's Democratic attorney general nomination.

White House adviser admits Trump got his facts wrong in economy tweet
That's not the case for the S&P 500 Index, which has increased more than 30 percent since Trump was elected on November 8, 2016. The White House has previously disseminated false statistics in an attempt to bolster Trump's record on jobs and the economy.

Polls show that race very close going into election day.

Nixon has never officially supported BDS, but in 2010 signed a letter with a 150 other USA actors, directors and artists voicing her support for Israeli actors who refused to perform in the Jewish state's controversial settlements in the West Bank.

Barbara Underwood tweeted Thursday before polls closed that the candidates "believe in the power of this office" and have given voters "a choice for the future".

The Siena poll, though, showed Mrs. Teachout running third behind Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the state's first openly gay member of the state's congressional delegation, and Letitia James, the New York City public advocate. Underwood declined to run for election. "I don't want any more corruption", he said. I am so proud to be your AG. But Nixon tried to draw attention to a series of gaffes from the Cuomo campaign in recent weeks, such as when the governor said that "America was never that great" during an August rally and then quickly backtracked.

He says his son, Dante, brought a card showing he was registered as a Democrat but was told his name wasn't on a list so he had to vote by affidavit ballot.
