Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon splits NY voters

But in New York's Democratic primary for governor, three key policy differences stick out between the two-term incumbent Andrew Cuomo and the progressive challenger he faces, Cynthia Nixon. A Democratic Party mailer implied she was anti-Semitic, sparking a furious backlash but Cuomo pleaded innocent. She would also be called to account for her idiosyncratic taste in bagels, and her support for a British tea shop frequented by her former co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.

A landslide victory for Carter in the IL primary that year made some voters think Kennedy's campaign was done, so they began to think of the NY primary as a referendum on the president, The Washington Post reported at the time. Nixon called Cuomo a "bully" and a liar, while Cuomo's campaign has dismissed Nixon as "unhinged". The paper obtained an email from Lobl dated September 1 that had wording which appeared nearly verbatim in the finished product. "This is exactly who he is".

It is common for such liaisons to draft talking points and other material for campaigns. That side featured a photo of Cuomo with President Reuven Rivlin of Israel, and a list of the governor's accomplishments for Jewish causes.

Despite enthusiasm for Nixon in some quarters and on social media, Cuomo has held substantial leads against Nixon in the polls.

But ex-Syracuse mayor and former state Democratic co-chair Stephanie Miner, who's making an independent run for governor, on Tuesday described the campaign email and the party mailer as a "coordinated attack". "Had he seen it, it would have never gone out".

But what happened? Since he's taken office, he seems to have forgotten that he's a Democrat.

Schwartz, who is Jewish, told the paper that he was very upset by the flier. "It was totally inappropriate".

"That's what I want-a full load", she declared at the counter, as veteran campaign manager Rebecca Katz tried, with good reason, to dissuade us from filming the harrowing scene. By running to Cuomo's left in the primary by promoting issues such as universal rent control, Medicare-for-all and marijuana legalization, Nixon hopes to stir up the same mix of educated and young voters that have been energized by other insurgent candidates such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

'But I love her and think if anyone is inclined voting Nixon is cool'. "He's made some really bad mistakes in the last few days". Please encourage your friends out here in the Empire State to vote this Thursday, 9/13!

While the contours of the Democratic race in NY look similar to those upsets, Nixon, best known for her Emmy-winning role on HBO's "Sex and the City", has steadily trailed Cuomo by 30 points or more in opinion polls.
