Cuomo's vulnerabilities heading into the primary

Cynthia Nixon’s Controversial Bagel Order Approved By Deli Connoisseur El-P

Andrew Cuomo's campaign says a campaign worker created a mailer questioning Cynthia Nixon's support for Jewish people. "So one of the most important issues to me is full funding more particularly more equitable funding for education which is something that I've been fighting for 17 years", said Nixon.

She wants the two-term Cuomo, who has always been thought to have presidential ambitions, to re-establish his liberal bona fides for voters calling for change.

"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 has the nomination of the Independence Party and the Women's Equality Party, while Nixon has been nominated by the Working Families Party - though she has said she will seek to remove her name if she doesn't beat Cuomo in the Democratic primary.

But Ms. Nixon, who is gay, says polling doesn't capture hundreds of thousands of people who have registered to vote over the last two years, and she points to a recent mailer from Cuomo allies casting her as anti-Semitic as evidence the race is close.

Nixon thanked the Zaber's employee behind the counter before leaving and asking him to, "please vote on Thursday".

"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.

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

He invited Hillary Clinton to a celebratory opening of the final span of the new Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge over the Hudson - only to keep the bridge closed after engineers warned that pieces from the largely disassembled Tappan Zee Bridge could hit the new bridge.

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.

Still, Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf said Mr. Cuomo was given a gift when Ms. Nixon ran too far to the left. Cuomo's inability to win voters over on the issue - and only a slight 2-point lead on "advancing progressive issues" - are the only two areas where the poll shows Cuomo looking vulnerable.

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

Cuomo's campaign said the "inappropriate" mailer was "wrong" and should not have gone out.

Thursday's primary also features a four-way Democratic contest for attorney general, which is being closely watched because of the office's ability to investigate Trump and his business and charity dealings. James was the early front runner but Monday's Siena poll suggests she's now almost neck-and-neck with Maloney and Teachout. His preferred pick for attorney general, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, is mired in a four-way primary.

Down ballot, former members of the Independent Democratic Conference all face challenges as well from candidates eager to end the status quo in state government.
