Cynthia Nixon Misses Clinton Endorsement As She Supports Andrew Cuomo Instead


– Hillary Clinton's spokesman confirmed to The New York Times that she will be endorsing Andrew Cuomo in the upcoming race for New York governor. Cuomo worked for Bill Clinton's administration during the 90's and has been governor for eight years, and also no one likes him.
– Some people are shocked (where? where are they?) that Clinton would support Cuomo over Nixon, while others cite that Cuomo's more centrist policies are closer to hers than Nixon's progressive ones, and that NY is her own turf, causing her to make a rare endorsement in time for midterms. Others speculate Bill has been even more invisible the last several months because of his comeuppance in the era of #MeToo.
– Cynthia Nixon recently received an endorsement from Bernie Sanders-inspired Our Revolution group, citing the Sanders campaign as one of her inspirations for entering the race for Governor. While this might signal a relitigation of 2016 again, it begs the larger question that caused it in the first place: whether or not the Democratic Party as a whole is going to grow and support candidates like Cynthia, or make them fight uphill every step of the way against ones like Cuomo. (so far it's been the latter)












ONTD, what's going on with local Democratic and progressive candidates where you live? Midterms post.
