New York Democrats decide governor, attorney general races

The 10th circle of hell

The 10th circle of hell

Cynthia Nixon may call herself a "progressive" candidate running for NY governor, but it's her radical bagel order that's raising a few eyebrows. Schwartz, who has been a close confidante of Cuomo since the pair first worked together in 1994, then signed off on it, and the New York Democratic Committee Paid $11,000 to print and distribute it, reported the New York Times.

Cuomo has said that he had no knowledge of the mailer and said through a spokeswoman that the language was "inappropriate". "I just think that there's been a lot of missed opportunities". She's a proud public school supporter, and anti-charter schools. "This is a fight for the soul of the Democratic Party". The "Trainwreck" star, a cousin of New York Sen.

Should Cuomo win, he would be heavily favored against Republican Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, in the November general election.

A Siena College poll released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon heading into Thursday's primary.

Down the ballot, the Brooklyn city councilman Jumaane Williams is challenging Cuomo's lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul. "I just don't believe it", the city council speaker, Corey Johnson, said on Wednesday.

"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. "It might be closer than he prefers, or the polls could be right for a change, but usually when they have spreads this big, things collapse down", Cunningham said. 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.

Many observers believe the lopsided polls may not reflect the state of the race.

The other contenders responded by going on the attack. Though she's always been an activist for her favored causes of education and same-sex marriage, running for office is new to her.

The race could have an impact on Democrats' efforts to win the House of Representatives.

Another closely watched race is the four-way Democratic contest for attorney general. While Democrats would be able to pick a new candidate, a race seen as unwinnable for Republicans in 2018 would become a possible pickup.

The IDC technically "disbanded", but each of the eight members of the group face a primary on Thursday. Teachers on strike would cause school closures, sanitation workers on the streets would result in a health crisis, and the shutting down of the MTA would cripple New York City's subway system.
