Primary Day in NYC: A breakdown of the races

Cuomo NIxon Meet In Only Televised Primary Debate

The former "Sex and the City" star said she has been encouraged by support upstate and in the suburbs, though New York City remains her core base. The New York Times reported that the Cuomo administration offered incentives for the contractor to finish the job before the primary, and Cuomo's insistence that the state does not control the Tappan Zee contrasts with his self-presentation as an effective and engaged manager.

Nixon was joined by Councilman Jumaane Williams, who is running for lieutenant governor, in Queens.

"The way I ran this campaign, it's been on the issues, it's been positive", Cuomo said at a news conference Sunday.

Cuomo rallied candidates and hundreds of other Democrats at an event inside Teamsters Local 456 union hall in Elmsford one day before the primary.

Cuomo campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith confirmed Lobl and Schwartz's involvement in the creation of the mailer, but said Schwartz only noticed the remarks about Cuomo's record on Jewish issues, not the false Nixon attacks on the other side.

But in the days leading up to the primary, the two were focused on a scathing mailer sent by the state Democratic party charging that Nixon has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism".

One of the candidates in the Democratic primary, Zephyr Teachout, pledged this week to investigate Mr. Cuomo should she win.

A Siena College poll released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon heading into Thursday's primary.

"New Yorkers & all NYCHA residents its time to get JUSTICE", Minaj tweeted.

"I think there can be no more patriotic thing to do than to go out and be speaking to New Yorkers about a NY that works for all of us", Nixon said.

In the video, Schiff said that people in NY are "tired of the cynical, self-serving corporate Democrats" and that they want to see "courageous, honest Democrats".

"The fact that he seems to be in hiding the day before the election - yeah, I think he's running scared", Nixon said in the Bronx.

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. "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said.

Cuomo's campaign said the "inappropriate" mailer was "wrong" and should not have gone out. But sources said it was drafted and approved by his closest advisers, including former top aide Larry Schwartz.

Another closely watched race is the four-way Democratic contest for attorney general. "He controls the state committee", Nixon said.
