  • Lox of love Cynthia Nixon defends cinnamon raisin bagel with smoked salmon

Democrats across NY state are picking the victor of a long and sometimes nasty primary contest between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and activist and former "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon.

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. "Polls close around 8PM". Nixon, who raises her two children Jewish, accused Cuomo of orchestrating the apparent smear campaign, which she called an "attack not only on my family, but on all New Yorkers".

Cuomo has also racked up endorsements from a wide assortment of people including Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and, on Wednesday, the musician Nicki Minaj.

On Sunday, Cynthia Nixon became the latest aspiring office-holder to briefly lose her mind while attempting to eat on the campaign trail, when she ordered-in public and on purpose-a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox from Zabar's on the Upper West Side. A Democratic Party mailer implied she was anti-Semitic, sparking a furious backlash but Cuomo pleaded innocent.

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.

With two days to go until New York Democrats head to the polls, Nixon, who has refused corporate donations, knows she's the underdog against a well-known, well-funded, powerful incumbent.




Cuomo vastly outspent Nixon, who in the final weeks of the race spent nearly nothing on voter contact, according to the New York Times' Shane Goldmacher. Nixon, who has never held office, has said Cuomo's experience has not translated to good governance.

"If it was all about name recognition", he said earlier this year, "then I'm hoping Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Billy Joel don't get into the race".

Nixon also sailed into controversy for a bagel order that incensed nearly everyone - the incongruous lox, cream cheese, tomatoes, and capers on a cinnamon and raisin bun.

Nixon has never officially supported BDS, but in 2010 signed a letter with a 150 other USA actors, directors and artists voicing her support for Israeli actors who refused to perform in the Jewish state's controversial settlements in the West Bank.

As for Nixon, honestly, she probably has a pretty advanced palate, so I trust her judgement.

"To break through, that requires a lot of money and organization", he told AFP.
