Governor Andrew Cuomo Beats Cynthia Nixon in New York Democratic Gubernatorial Primary

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has won the state’s gubernatorial Democratic primary against actress and challenger Cynthia Nixon, CNN reports. Cuomo recently spent over $8 million in three weeks against Nixon’s progressive bid, and top party officials overall supported Cuomo’s bid over Nixon’s. In recent days, Cuomo has taken strong stances against Trump and “listing his achievements” to counter Nixon’s platform supporting single-payer health care, new public school funding, universal rent control, and a large-scale revamp of New York’s subway system. Cuomo, the incumbent, now faces GOP Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro in November’s general election.
