The "Sex and the City" actress and New York gubernatorial candidate was filmed recently ordering a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox at a famous New York City deli. Letitia James, New York City's elected public advocate, secured the party's endorsement, and Cuomo's support.

It's possible that no matter who wins, both Cuomo and Nixon could appear on the November ballot anyway, thanks to third-party nominations.

"Nothing could be further from the truth", said Nixon.

The strength of public polling, the appeal of celebrity and the power of incumbency will be on the line Thursday in NY where Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo faces off against a Hollywood actress who has hammered away at the two-term Democratic governor's liberal credentials.

While a state Democratic Party official said earlier in the week that it would let Nixon send out a mailer of her choosing to the same population, her campaign manager, Rebecca Katz, told Gothamist, "there's been no formal offer", and they received no response to their request for a robocall denouncing the flier's incorrect claims.

"Heads need to roll", said City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who has endorsed Cuomo. Nixon mocked Cuomo's attempt to maintain a low profile as she campaigned with progressive star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"New Yorkers & all NYCHA residents its time to get JUSTICE", Minaj tweeted.

Nixon, who has never held office, has said Cuomo's experience has not translated to good governance, Cuomo has said she is inexperienced and naive about the practicalities of NY politics. "I would love people's support, but whoever you vote for, it's important that you vote", said Cuomo. 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. Party Director Geoff Berman later said the mailer was a mistake, and Cuomo's spokeswoman acknowledged that two former aides volunteering on the campaign were behind the piece. He's spent millions on ads and tried to make the race about Republican President Donald Trump, arguing that he's the best qualified to govern and push back against the White House. Bernie Sanders and the editorial board of the New York Times, which said she is well prepared to serve as a firewall against the Trump administration and keep tabs on "a state government in which ethics can seem a mere inconvenience".

The flier was then approved by Larry Schwartz, another campaign volunteer who was formerly Cuomo's top lieutenant. Mr. Sheinkopf said. "It is too close to call".
