    Smearing the victim to blame him for his own murder. Jesus.

    Denise looks adorable!

    I voted for Nixon knowing Cuomo would win. I also voted for Jumaane Williams. Albany is pretty corrupt but no seems to care. I voted at 6pm and was 110. Until everyone votes nothing will change. And I live in an area where people have time, transportation, child care, none of the usual barriers to voting.

      And yet her campaign (not her, her campaign) claims she lost because voter turn out was too high. Also a NYer, also voted, also not for Cuomo.

    • Enormous Coat says:

      But 6 of the 8 IDCers (Dems who caucused with Repubs – and Cuomo had a hand in the body’s creation) lost their primaries. Though one of those seats is in Central NY and I’m afraid the Democrat may lose the race to a Republican. So our state Senate may or may not flip. That a**hole Felder held his seat, of course.

      We needed a gubernatorial candidate with more experience than Nixon has, IMO. I voted for her to send a message. She does still have the WFP ballot line in Nov. Cuomo isn’t assured of a win in what will be a 4-way race. And the next few weeks will see a lot of skeletons emerge from his closet.

    • sa says:

      I was planning to (somewhat begrudgingly) vote for Cuomo, because I do value experience and know-how.

      But after last weekend’s disgusting fliers put out by the NY Democratic Party there was no way I was voting for Cuomo (Cuomo can deny it all he wants, those fliers don’t go out with his/his campaign’s approval).

      I voted for Nixon knowing she wouldn’t win, and I’d do it again. Unfortunately, nobody I voted for yesterday won :(

      Now I have a little time to make my peace with having to vote for Cuomo in a couple of months.

      • Darla says:

        Yeah, he knew about them, and yeah it was disgusting. He was going to win, I don’t know why he did that. He’s cut throat. I strongly dislike him. But he’s cut throat with trump too. That was my sole consideration this time around. I pray the next time around trump is long gone and I can vote my heart.

    • NightOwl says:

      Same! I voted at 1pm and was #17 in my area. I could not bring myself to vote for Nixon although I am lukewarm on Cuomo. She was very Bernie-esque to me and seemed to only have experience on a hyper local issue in our school district. NY is a big unwieldy state to govern and experience matters.

  4. JanetFerber says:

    Thanks for the post, Kaiser. I admire Cynthia Nixon for what she did. I think more highly of her than Cuomo (who is not half the man his father was), but I will vote for Cuomo for New York governor.

  5. Ye says:

    Nixon made a good impression on me. I hope she doesn’t quit her ambitions.

  6. Darla says:

    She had dismal support from POC. these white lefties cannot seem to speak to POC.

    I’m white and didn’t vote for her. I didn’t like her campaign, and I don’t like Cuomo either. I voted for Cuomo because we need a strong and very experienced Gov under Trump. I voted to protect our marginalized communities from trump. No, I’m not inspired by Cuomo. I call this adulting.

    Nixon ran way too much of bernie like campaign, and if she pulls a bernie and pouts till the election, and her supporters don’t vote for Cuomo, and we get an R governor this of all times, then leftists don’t want to talk to me ever. You don’t want to be near me. You do not want to be in striking distance of me.

    The IDC going down was awesome!

    • virginfangirl says:

      I voted for Nixon, and wanted Sanders, but have not made the mistake wasting my vote when I don’t get my way. Because your’re correct, that attitude allowed a crazy Republican to come to power. I would occasionally vote Republican in the past, but they have become a crazy cult of conspiracy theorists, & I want them out.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    Nixon had good ambition, but there was no way older Democrats were going to risk their vote on a newer candidate with no political experience in her background or education in this environment. Keep fighting for what you want, girl. Get your time in on a local level if necessary, get your political education on. Build your way up.

    The Botham case is just mind blowing. Imagine this with any other case with white citizens involved. Unbelievable.

    • sa says:

      I was in that ‘can’t vote for someone with no experience’ camp for a long time (though I may still be a few years away from being an ‘older Democrat’ ;) ). What finally convinced me that Cynthia Nixon was an option, was thinking about NY’s democratic machine. Only an outsider (or someone willing to risk political alienation), will challenge Cuomo in a primary.

      Then last weekend’s flier pushed me the rest of the way to support and vote for Nixon.

      • Enormous Coat says:

        Cuomo has diverted billions of state dollars to pet projects during his tenure – he is a big fan of quasi governmental organizations and uses them to transfer money without accountability (he also union busts the state workforce that way). That’s one downside of knowing the system: you also know how to game it. He’s a criminal, plain and simple.

        And re standing up to Trump. He and Jeff Klein, the former IDC leader, cooked up the IDC to thwart progressivism in NYS. And why did Klein go to Cuomo: because Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, a black woman, was chosen to be the leader of the Senate Dems over him. All of the progressivism Little Andrew is spouting now is so he can run for Pres. The man is an empty vessel. Look at how NYs Capital District voted in the primary – the people who live there are connected to the system. They are executive and legislative staff and statewide advocates. They know his misdeeds.

        And re him not being half the man his father was: amen to that. Mario Cuomo fought so hard to fight the stereotype of Italians as mobsters. And Cuomo and his former aide, Joe Percoco, made a bunch of dirty deals and referred to them as “ziti”, like the Sopranos. I just loathe Andrew Cuomo, and what I have listed today is the tip of the iceberg.

  8. Annabel says:

    As a New Yorker, I found it impossible to muster any enthusiasm for either Nixon or Cuomo. An actor with no political experience vs. the guy who let the NYC subway system reach the brink of collapse? It’s a tough call, frankly.

    Bring in the stylist.
    Bring in the makeup, beauty.
    Ralph Lauren and branded golf wear, soft cashmere, good colour and funky big watches of all prices.
    Cynthia, we need to love you, please!!!
