Primary Day in NYC: A breakdown of the races

Until quite recently, Cynthia Nixon was best known as the spiky red-headed companion of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City.

The stakes are high for Mr. Cuomo even if he wins, according to Jeanne Zaino, professor of political science at Iona College in NY.

"With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can't take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who won't stand strong for our Jewish communities", the mailer sent Saturday to some 7,000 Jewish households, said.

NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon called on her primary opponent, sitting Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to apologize for a mailer paid for by the state Democratic Party headed by Cuomo which questioned her support for issues important to Jewish voters.

Still, Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf said Mr. Cuomo was given a gift when Ms. Nixon ran too far to the left.

Though both are supported by prospective gubernatorial candidates, they can win on their own, meaning they can still win the lieutenant governor race if the candidate who backed them doesn't win, which can create a "fascinating dynamic" and possibly "cause tension" in Albany, according to Pehme.

"We have a Democratic Party leadership that is so much whiter, and so much older, and so much more beholden to corporate America than its base", Nixon said at a weekend fundraiser in Manhattan.

Apple pushes largest screens, cheaper models with new iPhones
It also will have a bigger battery and longer battery life than the iPhone Xs, but is otherwise identical in terms of features. Perhaps no detail was more important than the key piece of information Apple kept secret until today: pricing.

"Heads need to roll", said City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who has endorsed Cuomo.

"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. After a slow start, she attracted money and endorsements - including a New York Times endorsement that is front and center in all of her advertisements.

"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.

If voters think that Cuomo is going to win by a landslide, many of them might stay home, while inspiring a higher turnout among Nixon supporters rallied by a last-ditch effort to salvage her candidacy.

Cuomo's campaign said the "inappropriate" mailer was "wrong" and should not have gone out. 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. Mr. Sheinkopf said. "It is too close to call".
