Cuomo-Nixon showdown in NY governor's race goes to voters

The 10th circle of hell

Thursday's primaries also will decide the fates of eight state senators, elected as Democrats, who formed an "Independent Democratic Conference" that voted for Republican control of the state Senate.

Cuomo denied advance knowledge of the mailer.

In an interview on Tuesday with the Time On Politics reporter Lisa Lerer, Nixon said of the mailer: "I thought it was disgusting and cynical and really surprising that Andrew Cuomo's New York State party would stoop to this kind of fear-mongering and lies".

Nixon has been trailing in the polls, but according to Pehme, the polls have been consistently wrong, especially in primary races.

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. 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. "Sometimes primary voting is all about sending a message", Cunningham added. Maloney, one of just 12 Democrats who represents districts won in 2016 by Donald Trump, must abandon his House race if he becomes the nominee for attorney general.

Cuomo's inability to win voters over on the issue - and only a slight 2-point lead on "advancing progressive issues" - are the only two areas where the poll shows Cuomo looking vulnerable.

The 37-year-old made the announcement via a post to her Instagram that featured a photo of her cat and her dog. Ethics reforms and "the fact that all of these sexual harassment are being handled by panels by men in Albany" also show Cuomo's weaknesses, Dawidziak said. "We have said all along that the mailer was inappropriate and a mistake and have worked with the state party to change the approval process going forward to ensure this never happens again".

The flier was then approved by Larry Schwartz, another campaign volunteer who was formerly Cuomo's top lieutenant. The question remains whether that wave will be enough to carry Nixon to victory.

But the perception that James was too close to Cuomo created an opening for Teachout, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2014 and for Congress in 2016.
