"Voters deserve to hear Mr. Cuomo describe Miss Nixon as a worthy opponent who abhors anti-Semitism".

"I am the most aggressive in the United States of America in taking him on", Mr. Cuomo said at a recent campaign stop, highlighting his opposition to the Trump administration's immigration efforts. Cuomo is leading Nixon by wide margins in virtually every recent public poll and has drastically outspent his progressive challenger.

Cynthia Nixon is running on a platform that includes raising taxes on the rich, increasing school spending, ending cash bail and legalizing marijuana - hoping to harness the same left-wing energy that already has delivered upset wins to high-profile liberal candidates in other primaries this year.

'Thursday we vote. Everyone!

"I know the polls are not showing it but we are feeling such momentum, such momentum not just in New York City but across the state", said Nixon.

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 latest from Siena College released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon, but Nixon isn't backing down.

He invited Hillary Clinton to a celebratory opening of the final span of the new Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge over the Hudson - only to keep the bridge closed after engineers warned that pieces from the largely disassembled Tappan Zee Bridge could hit the new bridge.

When confronted by a possibly horrified passerby, Nixon assured the witness that she knew what she was doing: "Yeah, sweet and salty, you're right."

A mailer from the state Democratic Party that suggested that Nixon is anti-Semitic also backfired for Cuomo.

Yet despite enthusiasm for Nixon in some quarters and on social media, Cuomo has held substantial leads against Nixon in the polls.

Cuomo's campaign said the "inappropriate" mailer was "wrong" and should not have gone out. Felder has voted to keep Republicans in control of the state Senate to bring resources back to his majority-Jewish district; Dilan is being challenged by Julia Salazar, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who received glowing early coverage, then was buffeted by accusations that she had falsely let herself be portrayed as a working-class immigrant. New York City Public Advocate Tish James, who has Cuomo's support, faces Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, attorney Leecia Eve and Teachout, a Fordham University law professor who has Nixon's endorsement. In the final debates, Maloney and Eve - who has struggled to break out of single digits - have attacked Teachout for only recently passing the NY bar and for not rejecting "corporate" money in her 2016 run.
