Sitting NY Governor Cuomo crushed his primary progressive opponent, Cynthia Nixon. USA Today reports:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo cruised to a win Thursday in the Democratic primary for New York governor, easily warding off a challenge from actor and activist Cynthia Nixon as she tried to position herself as a more-progressive alternative.
Cuomo, an incumbent in his second term, had 65 percent of the vote to Nixon’s 35 percent with 85 percent of the districts reporting
The Associated Press called the race for Cuomo at around 9:30 p.m. EDT, a half-hour after polls closed.
Cuomo’s big victory allows him to continue his bid for a third term and sets up a November battle with Marc Molinaro, the Republican nominee for governor.
This is a lose-lose for the people of New York, left with the choice between a corrupt mainstream Democrat and a lunatic Leftist.
