Mr. Cuomo, meanwhile, is angling for a landslide victory that could bolster his ambitions of facing President Trump in a 2020 White House bid. I said that as soon as it came to light, as soon as I saw it.
"I didn't know about the mailer". David Lobl, a former special assistant to Cuomo who is now a campaign volunteer, sent the language to two campaign aides, who created the mailer. Recent polls show Cuomo with a 40-point lead, but Nixon says her lack of experience could be her edge.
Cuomo has countered he has a record of passing same-sex marriage and paid family leave in NY state and has declared that "nobody has stood up to Donald Trump like I have".
Ms. Nixon gained fame in her role as Miranda Hobbes in HBO's "Sex and the City" and on Broadway has won two Tony Awards, including one previous year. She could have brought up his failure to address gerrymandering, an issue that Cuomo ran on in 2010. "I don't want any more corruption", he said.
Cuomo and Nixon agree that NY should adopt single-payer healthcare, but they differ on how to get there. She's called Cuomo a bully and says she represents a wave of liberals eager to take a greater role in American politics.

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. Leecia Eve, a former Cuomo aide, was in fourth.
The "Sex and the City" actress and New York gubernatorial candidate was filmed recently ordering a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox at a famous New York City deli. Mr. Sheinkopf said. "It is too close to call".
The victor of the Democratic primary will face the Republican Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess county executive, in November.
He says, "the victims of Puerto Rico, and the people of Puerto Rico in general, do not deserve to be questioned about their pain". Cruz had earlier described the federal disaster response in the United States territory a "despicable act of neglect".
