"You can not be a progressive if you can not deliver progress".

Cuomo is the son of famed former NY governor and almost-presidential candidate Mario Cuomo.

Nixon, a longtime education activist and actress best known for her Emmy-winning role as lawyer Miranda Hobbes on HBO's "Sex and the City", was counting on a boost from liberals looking to oust establishment politicians.

Nixon, who is pushing for universal rent control, single-payer health care, new funding for public schools and a large-scale renewal of New York City's broken-down subway system, which is controlled by the state, frequently describes Cuomo's record as insufficiently ambitious for one of the country's bluest states.

On Wednesday night, Nicki Minaj endorsed current Governor Andrew Cuomo on Twitter. A Quinnipiac University poll similarly found Cuomo with a 36-point lead.

But first she faces off against Cuomo, 60, in the state's Democratic primary on Thursday.

Nixon gained endorsements from a host of leftist groups, and joined a slate of fellow progressives including City Councilman Jumaane Williams, who challenged Cuomo's lieutenant governor Kathy Hochul, and law professor Zephyr Teachout, who ran for attorney general.

Not all games will support this feature, but it's a relief to see Nintendo add a feature that should have been ready at launch. Nintendo will also offer a family bundle for $34.99 that allows up to eight people to use the same subscription.

The victor takes on Republican Keith Wofford in the general election.

In a debate last month, Nixon pointedly called the legalization of marijuana a "racial-justice issue".

Cuomo had been considered a potential 2020 presidential contender, but ruled himself out as a candidate during the re-election campaign. It did not always go smoothly: Cuomo drew fire for saying America "was never that great", in a fumbled attack on the president's slogan.

The planned opening of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo bridge to replace the old Tappan Zee Bridge between Westchester and Rockland counties was supposed to bolster Cuomo's image as a can-do governor, but a last-minute delay changed that narrative. Nevertheless, a former state Democratic Party chair said based on her experience there was "no way" the mailer was sent out without the "explicit consent" of Cuomo or his senior staff.

Lobl suggested the language used on the mailer, and had two campaign aides make up the flier.

Nixon leapt on what she denounced as a smear campaign, pointing out that she was bringing up two of her children Jewish and attended synagogue. Unsuccessful in the challenge, and in a subsequent race for New York's 19th Congressional District seat in 2016, Teachout is now in the midst of a tight race for the state's Democratic attorney general nomination.
