Cuomo defeats Nixon in NY gubernatorial primary

Cynthia Nixon’s Controversial Bagel Order Approved By Deli Connoisseur El-P Cynthia Nixon Orders Cinnamon Raisin Bagel With Lox And Onions

Nixon took to Twitter Thursday evening to thank everyone who helped her along the journey. "That's why we play the game and why we have elections".

Making a pit stop at the Upper West Side eatery on Sunday while on the campaign trail, Cynthia Nixon ordered a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox and capers. The New York Attorney General's office found in 2016 that the city's board of elections had illegally taken about 200,000 names in 2014 and 2015 from voter rolls.

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.

Cuomo has said that he had no knowledge of the mailer and said through a spokeswoman that the language was "inappropriate".

When confronted by a possibly horrified passerby, Nixon assured the witness that she knew what she was doing: "Yeah, sweet and salty, you're right."
She denounced as a smear campaign a Democratic Party mailer that implied she was anti-Semitic, to which Cuomo pleaded ignorance. Dealing with state corruption was the only issue that likely Democratic primary voters saw Nixon doing a better job on than Cuomo in the September 10 Siena poll, 42-39 percent. Meanwhile, corruption in Albany and voters' frustration with it have not subsided.

New Yorker reactions were mixed, with some lashing out in disgust and others defending Nixon's choice in bagel combo.


Polls leading up to the election showed Cuomo with a commanding lead, which never dropped below 22% in any public surveys throughout the race. To that end, she has run aggressively on a campaign to fix the subway, pinning the decrepit state of the system on her opponent.

"If you hock the house on Cynthia Nixon you will be homeless on Friday", Mr. Sheinkopf said. I think the mailer was a mistake.

The former Sex and the City star ran against Cuomo on a progressive platform and called him out on his leadership and record. "The new voices that we've seen rising up in places around the country, it's a question whether they're a statewide force or just concentrated in some urban areas" Cunningham said. Nixon's campaign was quick to note Thursday that the governor shelled out upwards of $16 million since July while, conversely, Nixon was mostly backed by small donors.

But that does not mean that a 41-point lead is enough to give Cuomo the victory that he wants.

NY was holding primaries for governor and attorney general on Thursday, with polls set to close at 9:00 p.m.
