Amy Schumer flips on Cynthia Nixon, will vote for Andrew Cuomo

Amy Schumer flips on Cynthia Nixon, will vote for Andrew Cuomo

And for [Zephyr Teachout] and [Jumaane Williams]", she wrote on Instagram, "voted with my heart thanks to the women who took their time to talk to me about it.

Challenging incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as you may have heard, is Cynthia Nixon, who may or may not be on her way in her transition from Emmy- and Tony-award winning actress to politician. Though she's always been an activist for her favored causes of education and same-sex marriage, running for office is new to her.

But Nixon pointed to a slew of recent upsets ー Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Andrew Gillum, and Ayanna Pressley ー that have fueled her optimism for Thursday's 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.

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.

Cuomo has also racked up endorsements from a wide assortment of people including Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and, on Wednesday, the musician Nicki Minaj. Many condemned the mailer as "beyond the pale", including the rabbi of the temple Nixon attends in ny.

"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. "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said. The "Trainwreck" star, a cousin of New York Sen.

In the lieutenant governor's race, City Councilman Jumaane Williams is looking to unseat incumbent Kathy Hochul.

The race for attorney general also could leave Mr. Cuomo smarting.

Cuomo frequently points out that education spending has increased since he took office, and is now at the highest level ever.

It is intriguing to note that her first cousin once removed U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer endorsed Cuomo just last week.

It is the day of New York's primary elections, which will determine, in addition to other contests, which Democrat will move forward in the race for governor.

While Cuomo has inveighed against President Donald Trump's policies repeatedly, the anti-Trump wave of progressive engagement has created a disconnect between Cuomo's record, which is fairly moderate, and the feisty attitude of the current Democratic base. "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.

The victor takes on Republican Keith Wofford in the general election.
