Primary Day: What you need to know

Mr. Cuomo, meanwhile, is angling for a landslide victory that could bolster his ambitions of facing President Trump in a 2020 White House bid.

"I didn't know about the mailer".

A Siena College poll released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon heading into Thursday's primary.

"With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can't take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who won't stand strong for our Jewish communities", the mailer sent Saturday to some 7,000 Jewish households, said.

Throughout the campaign, Nixon has hammered Cuomo for not investing enough in New York City's beleaguered transit system, for not addressing political corruption and for failing to deliver on economic development promises upstate.

While the contours of the Democratic race in NY look similar to those upsets, Nixon, best known for her Emmy-winning role on HBO's "Sex and the City", has steadily trailed Cuomo by 30 points or more in opinion polls. James was the early front runner but Monday's Siena poll suggests she's now almost neck-and-neck with Maloney and Teachout.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is taking some heat from his opponent Cynthia Nixon for holding a rally that was initially closed to the media.

His tenure has been marked by a cloud of corruption in recent months. NY state law allows candidates to run on multiple ballot lines.

"I didn't know about the mailer; I heard about the mailer, I haven't seen the mailer", Cuomo said at a press conference on Sunday. "He controls the state committee", Nixon said.


"Cynthia Nixon did not have the money, didn't have the organization and never really caught on".

There's a movement, she says, of left-leaning voters exhausted of piecemeal progress on crumbling subways, political corruption and income inequality.

The stakes are high for Mr. Cuomo even if he wins, according to Jeanne Zaino, professor of political science at Iona College in NY. His running mate, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, is facing a serious primary challenge from progressive New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams.

The flier was then approved by Larry Schwartz, another campaign volunteer who was formerly Cuomo's top lieutenant.

A landslide victory for Carter in the IL primary that year made some voters think Kennedy's campaign was done, so they began to think of the NY primary as a referendum on the president, The Washington Post reported at the time. Mario Cuomo served three terms before losing to Republican George Pataki while seeking his fourth. His preferred pick for attorney general, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, is mired in a four-way primary.

"Do gay people turn out to elect the first gay attorney general, or do African Americans turn out to elect the first African American woman attorney general, or do they turnout for Zephyr Teachout?" "It might be closer than he prefers, or the polls could be right for a change, but usually when they have spreads this big, things collapse down", Cunningham said.

"But no matter what happens, Donald Trump will have a headache", he said. The victor will face Republican Marc Molinaro in the fall.

Republicans already nominated Marcus Molinaro as their candidate for governor.
