I. Endorses Cynthia Nixon for Governor (Despite Not Knowing Who She Is)

14 September, 2018, 06:40 | Author: Myra Gill
  • Gov. Cuomo holds a whopping 41 point lead over Nixon with the Democratic primary days away poll

Cuomo continues to leads Nixon in all racial, age and gender categories, the poll found. Nixon, a longtime activist and former star of the TV show "Sex and the City", has aligned herself with progressive NY insurgents like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and describes herself as a democratic socialist. Hochul's lead is up 13 percentage points from July. The governor took a ceremonial ride over the new bridge on Friday.

"I was appalled - I was angry", Nixon said. Support for Mr. Cuomo, 60, was especially strong among black and Latino voters, as well as with voters over 55-years-old and voters in New York City, where the bulk of the state's registered Democrats live.

The second span was supposed to open to the public on Saturday but crews disassembling the nearby old Tappan Zee Bridge discovered that it had destabilized and could fall, potentially hitting the new span.

A New York State Democratic Party mailer over the weekend that implied, without basis, that Nixon was anti-Semitic, sparked a furious backlash and forced an apology, with Cuomo denying that he had anything knowledge of it.

By necessity as much as design, Nixon has focused her limited resources on digital outreach and get-out-the-vote activities.

"They will show up and make themselves heard", Ms. Hitt said.


"I am the mother of Jewish children, and I am very alarmed at the rise of anti-Semitism in this country and globally", Nixon said Sunday.

"We share a progressive vision", Nixon said of the group, reprising a key campaign argument: "We can't just keep giving people something to show up and vote against, we actually have to give them something to show up and vote for".

Party director Geoff Berman now says the mailer was "wrong and inappropriate".

The governor went about his campaign business Monday, however, locking up more institutional support in the form of endorsements from the state's entire Democratic congressional delegation.

The poll was taken before questions surfaced about the anti-Nixon mailer - or before the state was forced to close the second span of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge just a day after Cuomo held a celebratory ribbon cutting.
