Nixon calls for Cuomo to be held accountable for mailer

Gov. Andrew Cuomo fended off a left-flank challenge led by Cynthia Nixon in a Democratic Primary Thursday, according to the Associated Press. In its editorial, the Times acknowledged the problems with the subway and Albany corruption, but said that while Nixon's message "that she is not Andrew Cuomo... seem [ed] an appealing truth", it was not "enough" to garner its support. Four Democrats are facing off for the party's nomination in a race that polls have shown to be very close.

Not so for Mr. Cuomo, who is a political legacy - his father was three-term New York Gov. Mario Cuomo - and who has been a Cabinet secretary in the Clinton administration, served as New York's attorney general then won the governorship in 2010.

The race also got some attention for certain celebrity endorsements, particularly regarding Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

Even with only one healthy knee, Rodgers insists he's playing next week. "Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here". But yeah (Rodgers) is sore. "I just started watching so I can't really tell you anything about that yet".

In a contentious debate last month, Cuomo told Nixon to stop interrupting him, to which she responded: "Can you stop lying?" I haven't seen the mailer", Cuomo said at an unrelated event in Manhattan."The way I've ran this campaign, it's been on the issues, it's been positive.

Cuomo has said that he had no knowledge of the mailer and said through a spokeswoman that the language was "inappropriate". 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.

Nixon has campaigned hard to the left, hoping to ride the crest of other upset victories by political first-timers in Democratic Party primaries in congressional seats in places like NY and Boston. That sparked outrage from foodies who wouldn't dare upset the savory balance of a traditional bagel and schmear, especially when paired with lox, onions, capers and tomato as Nixon requested.

Nixon also sailed into controversy for a bagel order that incensed nearly everyone - the incongruous lox, cream cheese, tomatoes, and capers on a cinnamon and raisin bun.

When Bears fans closed their eyes and imagined the flawless opening to the Matt Nagy era, they might have imagined a few things. Rodgers was injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on his left knee after a second-quarter sack.

Underwood says she hopes it's clear the office "is the sum of all its staff".

And in July, Mr. Cuomo was dragged into ugly headlines after the architect of his six-year-old plan to revitalize upstate NY - dubbed "Buffalo Billion" - was convicted in a bid-rigging scheme involving state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

"Cynthia Nixon did not have the money, didn't have the organization and never really caught on". "A lot of people would be surprised if she did pull it off".
