Dunham also took to Twitter to show her support for Nixon, writing Tuesday that NY needs "a governor who will fight with us - on everything from passing universal healthcare to protecting reproductive rights and women's bodies".

Critics - who included some Cuomo allies - demanded accountability just hours before Democratic voters across the state head to the polls to pick the party's candidates for much of the November ballot.

The former Sex and the City star became the talk of the Twittersphere yesterday, when a video emerged of her ordering a cinnamon raisin bagel with smoked salmon, red onions, capers, tomato and cream cheese at Zabar's - an order that offended bagel and lox purists.

If Nixon can muster a higher turnout on her behalf compared to Cuomo, then she might be able to exceed expectations.

"I think there can be no more patriotic thing to do than to go out and be speaking to New Yorkers about a NY that works for all of us", Nixon said.

Another closely watched race is the four-way Democratic contest for attorney general.

"We don't just believe it - we live by it", he told a rally in Buffalo on Tuesday.

Cuomo has a 41-point lead in the latest poll and a wide lead in fundraising, but, on closer inspection, Nixon could do better Thursday's vote than expected. For instance, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's win against 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley in the 14th Congressional District race was a "political upset", according to Pehme.

Putin proposes 'historic' peace deal between Russia, Japan

Trump comments sting in Puerto Rico amid slow storm recovery
Puerto Rico's governor last month raised the USA territory's official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975. The fact that Puerto Rico is an island complicates the response, and its poor fiscal health, as noted by Mr.

"She's taking responsibility, for one, right?" Four years ago he largely ignored primary challenger Zephyr Teachout, refusing even to shake her hand, and lost a third of the vote.

But the actress-turned-activist isn't running to liberalize Cuomo ー she's running to replace him.

The race has featured bitter attacks.

Minaj on Wednesday threw her support behind Cuomo, writing on Twitter that he and his running mate, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, "know how to work for the people".

"Larry Schwartz, who serves on our campaign in a volunteer capacity, was reviewing mail pieces in an ad hoc fashion, but he only saw the positive section of the mailer and never saw the negative section", Smith said.

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

Cuomo denied advance knowledge of the mailer. NY state law allows candidates to run on multiple ballot lines.

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.
