Primary Day: Voters Head To Polls Across New York State

Primary Day: Voters Head To Polls Across New York State

Nixon, who is gay and attends Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, an LGBT synagogue, announced her bid for the Democratic nomination for NY governor in March.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is taking some heat from his opponent Cynthia Nixon for holding a rally that was initially closed to the media. "But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything..."

Cynthia Nixon's sweet talk got her flak on the campaign trail.

The planned opening of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo bridge to replace the old Tappan Zee Bridge between Westchester and Rockland counties was supposed to bolster Cuomo's image as a can-do governor, but a last-minute delay changed that narrative.

Meanwhile, Nixon's former "Sex and the City" co-stars, Parker, Kristin Davis and Chris Noth, have publicly announced their support for her in the race.

Cuomo has also battled with the state teacher's union after pushing for an evaluation system that was linked to student test scores during his first term.

The email pitch included excerpts of news reports from 2010, detailing how Nixon was among about 200 American celebrities - including many Jews - who signed a letter supporting a boycott by Israeli actors, directors and playwrights of a new theater in the West Bank settlement of Ariel. I said that as soon as it came to light, as soon as I saw it.

"To break through, that requires a lot of money and organization", he told AFP. Along with fellow rapper Despot, El-P is an investor in the well-reviewed New York Jewish deli Frankel's, which is helmed by a sibling duo that includes Alex Frankel of the DFA act Holy Ghost!.

"If he wins tomorrow, and if the margin is not as big as he wants, and if he doesn't get the lieutenant governor that he wants, he's not going to be a happy camper", Ms. Zaino said.

When confronted by a possibly horrified passerby, Nixon assured the witness that she knew what she was doing: "Yeah, sweet and salty, you're right."

Nixon also seemed to be gaining support for her stance on fixing the subways.

Given that two close associates of Cuomo created the mailer; the state Democratic party, which Cuomo controls, paid for it; and Cuomo's campaign team tried to sell the same story to the New York Post, outraged New Yorkers aren't buying the governor's denial.

"But no matter what happens, Donald Trump will have a headache", he said.

But it's the race for State Attorney General that may be the most hotly contested between Public Advocate Letitia James, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, Verizon lobbyist Leecia Eve and attorney Zephyr Teachout.

Republicans already nominated Marcus Molinaro as their candidate for governor.
