Cuomo calls Nixon campaign attacks part of 'political silly season'

Cuomo calls Nixon campaign attacks part of 'political silly season'

Nixon said as governor she will address the rampant inequality that plagues NY state, noting that the top one percent of New Yorkers make 45 times as much what the other 99 percent of New Yorkers make combined.

She wrote on her Twitter, 'I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education.

"We hear all the time about how the big money interests control DC", Nixon said.

"If Washington is a swamp, Albany is a cesspool", she said. "I'm not an Albany insider", she said. Earlier this month, a man who was formerly one of his closest aides was convicted of bribery-related crimes.

A day after officially announcing her New York State gubernatorial run, Cynthia Nixon delivered a fiery speech in front of nearly 100 local residents and reporters in Brownsville yesterday. Terry Gipson on Wednesday dropped his longshot bid to challenge Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic primary, citing actress Cynthia Nixon launching her campaign this week.

Nixon is an "unqualified lesbian", declared Christine Quinn, a Cuomo associate.

Badly needed improvements to the MTA's signal equipment have been delayed while politicians have pursued expensive pet projects, leaving workers unsure of where trains actually are in the system due to the outdated and failing tech used on the subway, Long Island Rail Road, and Metro-North Railroad. Could Cuomo, who is part of a NY political dynasty, be bumped off?

After Cynthia Nixon announced her decision to run for governor of New York, New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn has shared some choice words for the actress.

Nixon says it's not about that. I believe in her desire to be of service.

"My point was never to say her sexual orientation - or anybodys - is a negative when they're running for office", said Quinn, who like Nixon is a lesbian.

. "It just makes no sense to me", said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who is also gay.

"I think it's wonderful". Show me a compelling reason to cast my vote - and for my teenage daughter to cast her first ever vote - in your direction.

Cuomo was at the Capitol all day, but did not publicly speak.

We got U.S. Representative Gregory Meeks of NY's 5th congressional district on Capitol Hill Tuesday, and asked him to weigh in on Nixon's candidacy for the Governorship. But it reflects a deep discontent in the left-leaning wing of the Democratic Party, where voters feel that establishment candidates have failed to address issues such as income inequality.

Fellow Republican and Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro also plans to announce his candidacy in the coming weeks, after, at first, turning down requests to run. Former Erie County Executive Joel Giambra is seeking the nomination of the Reform Party after dropping out of the GOP race.
