Nixon calls for Cuomo to be held accountable for mailer

14 September 2018

The outcome of Thursday's Democratic primary is likely to resonate around the nation, reflecting an ongoing battle within the Democratic Party between moderate incumbents and progressives who say establishment politicians have failed to deliver on liberal priorities.

But the actress-turned-activist isn't running to liberalize Cuomo ー she's running to replace him. Nixon has also said she is a member of the actors union.

Cuomo spoke to reporters after casting his own ballot in Westchester County on Thursday and said he's the best-qualified candidate not only to govern but also to push back against President Donald Trump.

"We don't just believe it - we live by it", he told a rally in Buffalo on Tuesday. They insisted that it would be a "major embarrassment and significant under-performance" were he to win with less than a 41 percentage point lead, the spread in a recent Siena poll. She points to Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's primary victory over longtime Congressman Joe Crowley as evidence that underdog challengers can defy the odds. In a 2014 nominating contest, Cuomo defeated his opponent with fewer than 600,000 people voting out of almost 5.9 million registered Democrats in the state.

There were indications that the 52-year-old Nixon's aggressive campaign actually pushed the incumbent governor to the left on several issues, including legalizing marijuana and addressing crumbling public housing in New York City.

The race took on a sometimes bitter tone.

Nixon, who has two children being raised in the Jewish faith, called the mailer "dirty, sleazy politics" and said Cuomo's explanation that he didn't know about the mailer isn't believable.

The mailer said Nixon opposes funding for Jewish schools, supports "racist, xenophobic" calls to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians, and that she has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism".

Raiders' Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'
This is a bold claim by Gruden, especially since Mack is one of the best defensive players in the league. He threw an incomplete pass before finding tight end Jimmy Graham for a short gain on the next play.

He was mocked for saying America "was never that great" during remarks criticizing Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan. A Democratic Party mailer implied she was anti-Semitic, sparking a furious backlash but Cuomo pleaded innocent.

The New York Times reported that a former Cuomo aide "crafted the mailer's language".

"Cuomo will face Republican Marc Molinaro and independent Stephanie Miner in November's general election".

Nixon got her political start as an education advocate.
