While the contours of the Democratic race in NY look similar to those upsets, Nixon, best known for her Emmy-winning role on HBO's "Sex and the City", has steadily trailed Cuomo by 30 points or more in opinion polls. Letitia James, New York City's elected public advocate, secured the party's endorsement, and Cuomo's support.
"Nixon has supported insidious BDS campaign, signing onto letter boycotting Israel", the aide said.
The strength of public polling, the appeal of celebrity and the power of incumbency will be on the line Thursday in NY where Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo faces off against a Hollywood actress who has hammered away at the two-term Democratic governor's liberal credentials.
While a Nixon victory appears very unlikely, last-minute controversies surrounding the opening of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and a mailer to Jewish voters suggesting Nixon is anti-Semitic could haunt Cuomo and show that he is not without his own vulnerabilities. The email also includes mentions of the governor's accomplishments on Jewish causes, which were also detailed on the flier.
Nixon has campaigned hard to the left, hoping to ride the crest of other upset victories by political first-timers in Democratic Party primaries in congressional seats in places like NY and Boston.
11 dead, dozens hurt as driver crashes into crowd
The government originally said three people died, but raised the death toll to nine in a statement late on Wednesday. A local government statement described the event as a "deliberate, malicious case of driving with intent to injure".
Mr. Cuomo held a massive 41-point lead over Ms. Nixon in a Siena College poll released this week. Williams, who would be the state's first black lieutenant governor, has attacked Hochul for conservative votes and statements she made while representing a Republican-leaning House seat and argued that she has enabled Cuomo's worst instincts.
"New Yorkers & all NYCHA residents its time to get JUSTICE", Minaj tweeted.
'But I love her and think if anyone is inclined voting Nixon is cool'. "I don't want any more corruption", he said.
"I didn't know about the mailer; I heard about the mailer, I haven't seen the mailer", Cuomo said at a press conference on Sunday.
Cynthia Nixon wants to become the first woman and first openly gay governor of America's fourth most populous state, which leans Democrat but has upstate areas that voted for Donald Trump. "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. Dealing with state corruption was the only issue that likely Democratic primary voters saw Nixon doing a better job on than Cuomo in the September 10 Siena poll, 42-39 percent.
