Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon splits NY voters

Voters will also weigh in on lieutenant governor, with Democratic candidate New York City Council member Jumaane Williams challenging incumbent Kathy Hochul. 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. I'll tell you who I'm voting for honestly, ' started Schumer before announcing she'd be voting for Cuomo despite that fact that he isn't her 'fav dude'.

Polls are scheduled to close at 9 p.m.

"This is not a moment to sit on the sidelines".

"She's taking responsibility, for one, right?" "We know we can do better".

Mr. Cuomo held a massive 41-point lead over Ms. Nixon in a Siena College poll released this week.

Cuomo, the son of a governor who married a daughter of Robert F Kennedy and had three children before they divorced, has traded hard on his own progressive record and outspent his competitor.

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. Kennedy was down by about 20 points in the polls, but "you could sense it on the ground the crowds that Kennedy was getting", Shrum said in a telephone interview.

Nixon shot back at Cuomo's assertions, saying his claim to not know about the mailer was "patently absurd".

Cuomo, for his part, rejected what he called "reparations" during the debate, but struck a more cautious, pro-legalization position ー a leftward policy change that may have developed only at Nixon's prodding.




On Wednesday, the eve of New York's primary, Cuomo seemed to be avoiding the media, failing to alert the press to rallies in Westchester, the Bronx and Manhattan (they finally got a heads up about an evening rally in Brooklyn).

Nixon dived into the race last March, but in the final home-stretch, the fight has been dirty.

A campaign spokesperson said that Schwartz was reviewing campaign literature and did not flip the mailer over to see the "negative side" of it, only the other side promoting Cuomo as a friend of the Jewish community.

"I am the mother of Jewish children".

She wanted to be their governor.

But winning state-wide is tough, especially for a first-timer up against the well-oiled and seriously well-funded machinery of a two-time governor running for his third term.

"Cynthia Nixon did not have the money, didn't have the organization and never really caught on".

"Using marijuana is something that's effectively been legal for white people for a long time", she said during her interview on Cheddar.
