Primary Day in NYC: A breakdown of the races

The progressive Democrat challenging incumbent Andrew Cuomo in New York State's upcoming gubernatorial primary shared a cinnamon raisin bagel topped with lox and cream cheese with Cheddar on Tuesday.

The New York Times reported that the Cuomo administration offered incentives for the contractor to finish the job before the primary, and Cuomo's insistence that the state does not control the Tappan Zee contrasts with his self-presentation as an effective and engaged manager.

Cuomo has a 41-point lead in the latest poll and a wide lead in fundraising, but, on closer inspection, Nixon could do better Thursday's vote than expected. A Quinnipiac University poll similarly found Cuomo with a 36-point lead.

The race got ugly in the final days, after the New York Democratic Party sent a mailer accusing Nixon of not standing up to anti-Semitism.

"Don't believe the polls, don't believe the hype".

Cuomo's campaign suffered a series of missteps over the last weekend of the race.


Cuomo and Nixon agree that NY should adopt single-payer healthcare, but they differ on how to get there. But the span did not open as planned, as engineers said the old bridge could collapse and endanger the new one. Nixon has also said she is a member of the actors union. "This president has brought an attitude and philosophy to this country that is exclusionary, that is divisive, that is bigoted, that is sexist, that is racist".

Nixon has hit Cuomo hard on the subway, attacking him for his deals with Republicans and for taking donations from Trump in the past, claiming that she represents a grass-roots call for change. "This idea that he's going to win could be a factor in people saying, 'I don't need to go in on Thursday, '" political consultant Michael Dawidziak said in a telephone interview. "There's no way to make a prediction".

The victor will face Republican Marc Molinaro in the fall.

Democrats across NY are choosing their candidates for governor, attorney general and the state Legislature in the nation's last primary election of 2018. Williams has a base of support in Brooklyn's black community and has won some endorsements that Nixon did not, raising the possibility that he could win and leave Cuomo with an antagonist as his number two.

Thursday's contests in NY represent the final, and perhaps most sensational, opportunity for the national progressive insurgency to unseat a slate of powerful Democratic incumbents. The candidates include Fordham University law professor Zephyr Teachout, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Hillary Clinton adviser Leecia Eve.
