New York Democrats decide governor, attorney general races

Cuomo NIxon Meet In Only Televised Primary Debate

"I just don't believe it", the city council speaker, Corey Johnson, said on Wednesday. "Know me by my enemies". While a Nixon victory appears very unlikely, last-minute controversies surrounding the opening of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and a mailer to Jewish voters suggesting Nixon is anti-Semitic could haunt Cuomo and show that he is not without his own vulnerabilities.

"He is going hard, but I think what that shows is that he is actually scared because he understands that we've got a real hunger for progressive change in NY state and he doesn't have a record to run on", Ms. Nixon said Wednesday on the "Breakfast Club" radio show. And for [Zephyr Teachout] and [Jumaane Williams]", she wrote on Instagram, "voted with my heart thanks to the women who took their time to talk to me about it. She could have brought up his failure to address gerrymandering, an issue that Cuomo ran on in 2010.

Cuomo, 60, was born into politics as the son of Mario Cuomo, a longtime public figure who also served as NY governor.

His tenure has been marked by a cloud of corruption in recent months. "I didn't say a negative word about my opponent", he said, repeating his claim that he was in the dark about the mailer.

"I just think she has the right vision and the right morals to lead NY in a direction that it has not been going in for the past years with Cuomo", said Ian Greer, a 22-year-old fashion designer.

Cuomo campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith confirmed Lobl and Schwartz's involvement in the creation of the mailer, but said Schwartz only noticed the remarks about Cuomo's record on Jewish issues, not the false Nixon attacks on the other side.

"To break through, that requires a lot of money and organization", he told AFP. "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said. NY is the only state in the country which has separate election days for federal and statewide primaries. She said Cuomo has not aggressively fought for the funding in Albany.

No one really won Sweden's general election and people are utterly confused
An exit poll showed that nearly a fifth of the far-right voters cast their ballots for the Social Democrats the last election. The center-right Moderates have become especially tough on immigration, echoing numerous positions of the Sweden Democrats.

Cuomo rallied candidates and hundreds of other Democrats at an event inside Teamsters Local 456 union hall in Elmsford one day before the primary.

The race also got some attention for certain celebrity endorsements, particularly regarding Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

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.

That contest, which also features Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of the state's 18th Congressional District, and New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, is still too close to call.

Up-and-coming Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a message from a Stony Brook professor saying some ballots for the attorney general race had been misprinted, which had caused confusion and led people to vote for more than one candidate in the race.

In 2014, Cuomo faced attorney Zephyr Teachout in the Democratic primary, a race similar to Thursday's in which Teachout attempted to unseat Cuomo from his left.
