CUOMO PULLS AHEAD: NY Governor Opens up MASSIVE 40 Point Lead over Cynthia Nixon

"The idea that they would accuse me of being soft on anti-Semitism is an outrage".

Cuomo continues to leads Nixon in all racial, age and gender categories, the poll found. Nixon, a longtime activist and former star of the TV show "Sex and the City", has aligned herself with progressive NY insurgents like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and describes herself as a democratic socialist. Siena's July survey had Mr. Cuomo leading 60% to Ms. Nixon's 29%.

Cuomo spent the first few days of September making daily announcements on infrastructure achievements, including the groundbreaking of a third track for the Long Island Rail Road, a new and brighter entrance to the beleaguered Penn Station, and last Friday, the opening of the final span of the Mario Cuomo Bridge, named after the governor's late father.

"It seems very clear that the bridge was not ready to open", Nixon said Sunday. Actor Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging Cuomo from the left in the primary, held a news conference at the foot of the bridge in Tarrytown.

A New York State Democratic Party mailer over the weekend that implied, without basis, that Nixon was anti-Semitic, sparked a furious backlash and forced an apology, with Cuomo denying that he had anything knowledge of it. "ANYTHING I SAY.She's got my vote!"

"They will show up and make themselves heard", Ms. Hitt said.

In January, Bezos also personally gave $33 million USA in college scholarships for young immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. Along with running Amazon the tech mogul owns space exploration company Blue Origin and the Washington Post newspaper.

The mailer says Nixon opposes funding for Jewish schools, supports "racist, xenophobic" calls to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians and that she has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism".

Cuomo is, in effect, in charge of the state Democratic Party.

New York Democratic Party executive director Geoff Berman vowed Saturday via "It will not happen again". He's offering to pay for the Nixon campaign to send out its own mailer but it's unclear whether there's time before election day. But during campaign stops in Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo Monday, Cuomo focused on President Trump, and didn't mention Nixon once.

"The state Party sent out a wrong and inappropriate mailer - we will work with the Nixon campaign to send out a mailing of their choosing to the same universe of people", the read Sunday morning.

On Staten Island, Cuomo sent his 87-year-old mother out on the campaign trail.
