Cynthia Nixon and progressives face Cuomo and New York’s establishment juggernaut

(CNN)Thursday’s contests in New York represent the final, and perhaps most sensational, opportunity for the national progressive insurgency to unseat a slate of powerful Democratic incumbents.

Cynthia Nixon’s bid to deny Gov. Andrew Cuomo a third term has been met with a hard line of resistance from the party establishment, inside the state and nationally, and a paid media blitz from Cuomo, who tried throughout the campaign to cast himself as both liberal champion and hard-bitten foe of President Donald Trump.
Nixon, who is pushing for universal rent control, single-payer health care, new funding for public schools and a large-scale renewal of New York City’s broken-down subway system, which is controlled by the state, frequently describes Cuomo’s record as insufficiently ambitious for one of the country’s bluest states.
