Nixon, a longtime activist and a former star of "Sex and the City", has hammered Cuomo over New York City's beleaguered subways and failures to address income inequality and corruption.

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. First of all, I urge everybody to vote.

In addition to the email, the Cuomo aide attempted to pitch the reporter through text messages, including a text that said, "Hey I got something for you on nixon...." Nevertheless, a former state Democratic Party chair said based on her experience there was "no way" the mailer was sent out without the "explicit consent" of Cuomo or his senior staff. In response to criticism that that money is not going to the students who need it most, in 2018 he push for new requirement for districts to disclose how much funding goes to each school.

Nixon leapt on what she denounced as a smear campaign, pointing out that she was bringing up two of her children Jewish and attended synagogue.

"If you hock the house on Cynthia Nixon you will be homeless on Friday", Mr. Sheinkopf said. "He needs to say not only is this inappropriate, he needs to say that it's completely untrue".

Nixon is hoping to repeat that success in what she describes as her insurgent campaign for governor. They might not think she can win, but a vote for her might convince be a warning to Cuomo to clean up his act.

But some voters, like Aaron Weintraub, put their faith in two-term Gov. Cuomo to "get things done". "We have a chance to strike a blow for real progressives", she said on Tuesday on WNYC radio.

Nixon will be "running all around to different parts of the city to continue campaigning", she said.

Mayor Bill de Blasio cast his ballot in Brooklyn, though he has not endorsed either candidate.

The victor of the primary will face Republican Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and former Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, an independent, in the November general election.

The Democratic gubernatorial primary in NY will come to a close on Thursday, after months of sniping between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his opponent, actor and activist Cynthia Nixon.

President Donald Trump might want to keep an eye on the attorney general primary. Public advocate Letitia James, law professor Zephyr Teachout, represenative Sean Patrick Maloney, and attorney Leecia Eve are competing for the spot. The victor will face Republican Marc Molinaro in the fall.
