Nixon Hopes for Big Upset in Primary Battle with Cuomo

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.

The nominating contest is the latest test for candidates from the party's energized left wing as Democrats seek to regain control of the U.S. Congress and bolster their ranks in state governments across the country in November 6 elections.

Nixon has hammered Cuomo for failing to address New York City's beleaguered subways and for not following through on pledges to address corruption.

"With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can't take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who won't stand strong for our Jewish communities", the mailer said.

On Sunday, the actor-turned-New York-governor-hopeful stopped by Zabar's, a Manhattan gourmet grocery store known for their bagels, and ordered a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese, lox, red onion, tomato, and capers.

Hurricane Florence, 8 pm Monday: Torrential flooding expected statewide
Other top officials involved in last year's hurricane season , including Long and Nielsen, also remain in place. Henry McMaster ordered the mandatory evacuation of the state's coastline beginning at noon Tuesday.

"If you hock the house on Cynthia Nixon you will be homeless on Friday", Mr. Sheinkopf said.

"Washington is trying to take us in one direction, and NY is going in the opposite direction", he said this week at a Buffalo campaign stop. "I just don't believe it", the city council speaker, Corey Johnson, said on Wednesday.

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.

"Cynthia Nixon did not have the money, didn't have the organization and never really caught on".

In their only gubernatorial debate, Nixon cited the RAND Corporation's August report which analyzed the New York Health Act's passage (the act would start the move toward single-payer healthcare in New York). "The governor holds a lot more responsibility over the trains than he wants to admit", said Morgan Hargrove.

Nerve agent suspects: We were in Salisbury as tourists
Theresa May told the Commons last week that they were officers from Russia's military intelligence service, known as the GRU. The pair said they had travelled to Europe quite a lot for holidays and for business.

Cuomo has also battled with the state teacher's union after pushing for an evaluation system that was linked to student test scores during his first term.

On Wednesday night, the Working Families Party, a progressive political party in NY that switched its allegiance from Cuomo in 2016 to Nixon in 2018, sent out an overview of the race that highlighted the policy changes Cuomo has adopted thanks to Nixon's primary, rather than predicting she'll win.

Up-and-coming Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a message from a Stony Brook professor saying some ballots for the attorney general race had been misprinted, which had caused confusion and led people to vote for more than one candidate in the race. The other candidates are Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Cuomo official Leecia Eve.

Attorney general candidate Zephyr Teachout, who launched an unsuccessful primary bid against Cuomo in 2014, has been endorsed by Sen.

The victor of the Democratic primary will face Republican Keith Wofford in the attorney general's race in the heavily blue state. "He's governed like a Republican".
