Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon splits NY voters

Read			Cynthia Nixon Loses Democratic Party Nomination for New York Governor

The former Sex and the City star became the talk of the Twittersphere yesterday, when a video emerged of her ordering a cinnamon raisin bagel with smoked salmon, red onions, capers, tomato and cream cheese at Zabar's - an order that offended bagel and lox purists.

It's possible that no matter who wins, both Cuomo and Nixon could appear on the November ballot anyway, thanks to third-party nominations.

"Our politics need to reflect our world + with women speaking up every day about and against mistreatment (often at the most systemic and deeply entrenched levels), fighting tirelessly for a seat at the table, Cynthia Nixon & the incredible success of this campaign so far has proven that women's voices need to be lifted up & represented at every level of government, now more than ever", Dunham added.

One of those candidates is Jumaane Williams, a member of the New York City Council who is challenging Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul from the left. She would also be called to account for her idiosyncratic taste in bagels, and her support for a British tea shop frequented by her former co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.

"I am the mother of Jewish children", Nixon, who is raising her children Jewish, said in a statement late on Sunday.

Polls show Cuomo has a commanding lead, with the most recent survey, from Siena College, suggesting he was more than 40 percentage points ahead in the race's final days. After a slow start, she attracted money and endorsements - including a New York Times endorsement that is front and center in all of her advertisements.

"To be informed about Andrew Cuomo is to want a change", she 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".

In addition to the email, the Cuomo aide attempted to pitch the reporter through text messages, including a text that said, "Hey I got something for you on nixon.... She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said.

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

The victor of the Democratic primary will face Republican Keith Wofford in the attorney general's race in the heavily blue state.

But the perception that James was too close to Cuomo created an opening for Teachout, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2014 and for Congress in 2016. "He controls the state committee", Nixon said.
