Cuomo Trounces Democratic Socialist Nixon In NY Democrat Governor Primary

In the New York Democrat primary for governor, voters sided with the establishment candidate over the Bernie style Democratic Socialist candidate. Andrew Cuomo defeated Cynthia Nixon and it wasn’t even close.

This time, conventional wisdom proved right.

The Associated Pressed called the Democratic Party vote for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday within a half hour of polls closing, beating back Cynthia Nixon’s anti-establishment attack from the left with a message of experienced leadership.

Cuomo had 66 percent of the vote to Nixon’s 34 percent with 33 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press.

Although Cuomo tried to position the race as a contest between himself and President Donald Trump, who is deeply unpopular in many areas of his home state, the primary election became a referendum on Cuomo’s eight years in office, his centrist style of governing and the state’s Democratic establishment.
