The ‘Sex in the city’ actorist has been an unabashed NY City Mayor de Blaso supporter ….
The Big Apple Mayor and the New York Governor maybe in the same Democratic party, but seldom see eye-to-eye.. and in political pissing matches Cuomo very seldom loses ….
She is reping the left of her party in a Blue state that isn’t so left leaning once you leave the state five boro’s…..
Nixon is a long shot….
The candidacy of actress Cynthia Nixon for governor explodes the long-simmering feud between Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo into a bitter political firestorm. Hopefully our city won’t get burned along the way.
If New York is lucky, we’ll get healthy competition and a contest of ideas. If we’re unlucky, expect years of dreary infighting and petty power plays that do lasting harm to programs, policies, careers and communities.
From Cuomo’s point of view, Nixon’s challenge — especially her hiring of two top de Blasio campaign aides — represents an open, all-out attack by de Blasio. One person familiar with the governor’s thinking described him as feeling “liberated” that that gloves are off and he can now sic his team on de Blasio and his allies without holding back.
Much of the fight between the two men is personal. As the saying goes, they have history….
The first poll of a hypothetical match-up between Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon is in. He leads 66% to 19%.
