New York Democrats decide governor, attorney general races

The Snatched star also revealed that she will be voting for Zephyr Teachout for Attorney General of NY and Jumaane D. Williams for Lieutenant Governor. Letitia James, New York City's elected public advocate, secured the party's endorsement, and Cuomo's support.

It also states that Nixon is "against funding for yeshivas", supports "BDS, the racist, xenophobic campaign to boycott Israel" and has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism".

"The key for the governor is making sure that on a Thursday primary, a day that voters are not necessarily used to voting, that he gets his supporters to the polls", Siena pollster Steven Greenberg said in a telephone interview.

One of those candidates is Jumaane Williams, a member of the New York City Council who is challenging Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul from the left.

"We risk diluting our fight against real anti-Semites when we call someone like Cynthia Nixon - who is manifestly the opposite of anti-Semitic - by that very, very serious charge", the Manhattan Democrat said. One customer confronted Nixon who assured them she knew what she was ordering.

"I am the most aggressive in the United States of America in taking him on", Mr. Cuomo said at a recent campaign stop, highlighting his opposition to the Trump administration's immigration efforts. Cuomo believes this will strengthen our democracy.

He wrote Monday on Twitter that he didn't know "who this brilliant lady is", but added that she had his vote, as he posted a video in which Nixon said it was time for NY to legalize marijuana.

Polls close at 9 p.m. but our coverage starts at 7 p.m. with "Inside City Hall".

The Cuomo campaign released a statement largely confirming The Post's reporting on the issue - while claiming Schwartz somehow missed the "negative section" of the mailer before giving the green light to distribute it.

"Do gay people turn out to elect the first gay attorney general, or do African Americans turn out to elect the first African American woman attorney general, or do they turnout for Zephyr Teachout?"

The breakaway group of lawmakers, now disbanded, often allied with Republicans to cement GOP control of the state Senate in return for pay bumps, office perks and extra money for their districts. He's spent millions on ads and tried to make the race about Republican President Donald Trump, arguing that he's the best qualified to govern and push back against the White House.
