Amy Schumer says she’s voting for Cuomo in NY primary election

I haven't seen the mailer", Cuomo said at an unrelated event in Manhattan."The way I've ran this campaign, it's been on the issues, it's been positive. "I just think that there's been a lot of missed opportunities".

"I know the polls are not showing it but we are feeling such momentum, such momentum not just in New York City but across the state", said Nixon. On the trail, she has endorsed statewide universal health care, free college tuition, rent regulation and a public transportation plan that would rebuild the commuter rail system. Many condemned the mailer as "beyond the pale", including the rabbi of the temple Nixon attends in NY. "Further, speaking as lifelong Democrats, this is not who our party is - using divisive and baseless smears to divide people and promote fear".

The stakes are high for Mr. Cuomo even if he wins, according to Jeanne Zaino, professor of political science at Iona College in NY.

If he wins the primary race, he is expected to easily win the midterm November election.

Nixon mocked Cuomo's attempt to maintain a low profile as she campaigned with progressive star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Nixon, who is gay and attends Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, an LGBT synagogue, announced her bid for the Democratic nomination for NY governor in March.

"You can be an activist and be a productive elected official", Williams said. "There's no way to predetermine who the electorate will be and that's why certain local races you have huge challenges in predicting results", he said. I said that as soon as it came to light, as soon as I saw it.

The unique situation in her race - the resignation of Eric Schneiderman after women accused him of physical abuse created a short, four-month primary season - led to a four-way scrum.

"Larry Schwartz, who serves on our campaign in a volunteer capacity, was reviewing mail pieces in an ad hoc fashion, but he only saw the positive section of the mailer and never saw the negative section", Smith said. Mr. Sheinkopf said. "It is too close to call". After a slow start, she attracted money and endorsements - including a New York Times endorsement that is front and center in all of her advertisements.

While a Cuomo victory looks preordained, the race for state attorney general most definitely does not. "But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything..."

Cuomo has played up efforts to take on President Donald Trump and says Nixon isn't qualified to lead the nation's fourth largest state.

'Thursday we vote. Everyone!

In New York, the subways are theoretically controlled by the governor, who oversees the MTA. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and other powerful Democrats. And even those who back her bid are speaking in tones that sound resigned to her loss.
