Nixon hopes for big upset as primary battle with Cuomo ends

Cuomo NIxon Meet In Only Televised Primary Debate

Cuomo NIxon Meet In Only Televised Primary Debate

Nixon has hammered Cuomo for failing to address New York City's beleaguered subways and for not following through on pledges to address corruption.

The email included multiple excerpts of news reports from 2010, detailing how Nixon was part of a group of approximately 200 American celebrities, including many Jews, who signed a letter advocating a boycott by Israeli actors, directors and playwrights of a new theater in Ariel, one of the largest Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

"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", Smith said.

New York Democrats are poised to decide who prevails in the long and sometimes nasty primary fight between New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon.

Cuomo has said that he had no knowledge of the mailer and said through a spokeswoman that the language was "inappropriate".

State attorney general candidate Tish James was also at the pep rally, which was attended by dozens of local and state lawmakers.

Nixon has campaigned hard to the left, hoping to ride the crest of other upset victories by political first-timers in Democratic Party primaries in congressional seats in places like NY and Boston.

She added that she thinks Cuomo knew about the mailer despite his denials. The younger Cuomo, a former Clinton administration official, controls the party's state machinery and secured endorsements from members of the party establishment.

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.

A Siena College poll released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon heading into Thursday's primary.

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".

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

Political observers say that turnout is an overriding factor, but if damaging stories continue to come out about Cuomo, whether concerning the bridge, the mailer or other issues, "it's likely to affect at the margins the spread", said Levenson. But sources said it was drafted and approved by his closest advisers, including former top aide Larry Schwartz.

There are also multiple people hoping to get your support in primaries for attorney general, lieutenant governor, and several town ballot races as well.
