State and Local Primary Election take place this Thursday, September 13, 2018.

The strength of public polling, the appeal of celebrity and the power of incumbency will be on the line Thursday in NY where Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo faces off against a Hollywood actress who has hammered away at the two-term Democratic governor's liberal credentials.

Democratic candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon will begin her day stumping on the Upper West Side.

"This is an important election". And that I can't vote.

"I would have never approved that mailer to go out had I seen it in its totality", he said.

A recent debate on CBS2 proved they don't agree on much - fighting over everything from subways, to corruption and health care. Cuomo denied all knowledge of the mailer's contents.

"I am the mother of Jewish children".

"If you hock the house on Cynthia Nixon you will be homeless on Friday", Mr. Sheinkopf said. "He needs to say not only is this inappropriate, he needs to say that it's completely untrue".

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

"Just looking for change". I said that as soon as it came to light, as soon as I saw it. In the process, she would have to explain how she would surmount the tangled politics of the state capital and what she would do for the third largest economy in the United States.

"If he wins tomorrow, and if the margin is not as big as he wants, and if he doesn't get the lieutenant governor that he wants, he's not going to be a happy camper", Ms. Zaino said. "There needs to be a really strong front", he said.

Asked for comment about the Nixon-BDS story pitch, Cuomo's campaign press secretary Abbey Collins said: "The off the record email forwarded to the New York Post contained published articles and publicly available information on Cynthia Nixon's positions on issues concerning Israel sent for the Post's information - those articles have nothing to do with the wrong and inappropriate mail piece that went out and shouldn't have".

The victor of the primary will face Republican Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and former Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, an independent, in the November general election.

The Snatched star also revealed that she will be voting for Zephyr Teachout for Attorney General of NY and Jumaane D. Williams for Lieutenant Governor.

Approved and paid for by the New York State Democratic Committee, the mailer accused Nixon of remaining "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism", and supporting BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), a worldwide movement to boycott Israeli goods and cultural exports.
