New York Democrats decide governor, attorney general races

New York Democratic primary candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon makes a concession speech at a Brooklyn restaurant

"That's what I want-a full load", she declared at the counter, as veteran campaign manager Rebecca Katz tried, with good reason, to dissuade us from filming the harrowing scene.

Nixon, who raises her two children Jewish, accused Cuomo of orchestrating the apparent smear campaign, which she called an "attack not only on my family, but on all New Yorkers". "But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything..."

Nixon said last night she's hoping for a big upset in the primary.

And in July, Mr. Cuomo was dragged into ugly headlines after the architect of his six-year-old plan to revitalize upstate NY - dubbed "Buffalo Billion" - was convicted in a bid-rigging scheme involving state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

While Cuomo rarely mentions the former "Sex and the City" actress by name, his campaign has slimed Nixon as "unhinged". The race started bitterly, and it's ending that way after the state Democratic Party - which has endorsed Cuomo - sent mail to voters that falsely accused Nixon of embracing anti-Semitism.

Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon is not the only celebrity with eyebrow-raising food tastes.

"It is apples and oranges, and to disclose an off the record exchange that had been agreed to by the New York Post is a violation of journalistic ethics", Collins added.

Down the ballot, the Brooklyn city councilman Jumaane Williams is challenging Cuomo's lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul. They might not think she can win, but a vote for her might convince be a warning to Cuomo to clean up his act.

In a reversal, Schumer also offered her stamp of approval to Cuomo this week.

Primary season comes to an end with Thursday's elections in NY, battles between the state's Democratic Party leadership and an insurgency that wants immediate action on immigration, housing and health care.

Nixon also seemed to be gaining support for her stance on fixing the subways.

"Do gay people turn out to elect the first gay attorney general, or do African Americans turn out to elect the first African American woman attorney general, or do they turnout for Zephyr Teachout?"

Republicans already nominated Marcus Molinaro as their candidate for governor.

Earlier this campaign season, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley both upset long-serving Democratic incumbent congressmen in nominating races in NY and MA, promising more vigorous liberal policies and highlighting their opposition to Republican President Donald Trump.
