Cynthia Nixon's unusual bagel order causes a stir on social media

  • Governor Andrew Cuomo with former top aid Larry Schwartz in 2014

Meanwhile, Nixon's former "Sex and the City" co-stars, Parker, Kristin Davis and Chris Noth, have publicly announced their support for her in the race.

The email included multiple excerpts of news reports from 2010, detailing how Nixon was part of a group of approximately 200 American celebrities, including many Jews, who signed a letter advocating a boycott by Israeli actors, directors and playwrights of a new theater in Ariel, one of the largest Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

"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", said Cuomo campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith.

Celebrities in NY are voicing support for both Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and his challenger from the left, Cynthia Nixon, as the Empire State heads to the polls for its primary vote.

Still, Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf said Mr. Cuomo was given a gift when Ms. Nixon ran too far to the left.

The gubernatorial candidates weren't alone in last-minute barnstorming across the city.

Trump Signs Order Enabling Sanctions on Foreign Election Meddling
The attorney general and Department of Homeland Security then have another 45 days to assess whether sanctions should be imposed. Bolton says the executive order will work to stem disinformation campaigns or any attempt to manipulate the outcome of ballots.

Nixon said last night she's hoping for a big upset in the primary.

"I didn't know about the mailer; I heard about the mailer, I haven't seen the mailer", Cuomo said at a press conference on Sunday.

The Times, which endorsed Cuomo, called the mailer "a disgrace", and Randi Weingarten, a Cuomo supporter whose wife is the rabbi at a synagogue that Nixon attends, said the notion that Nixon is anti-Semitic is a "baseless lie", New York Magazine reported.

She wants the two-term Cuomo, who has always been thought to have presidential ambitions, to re-establish his liberal bona fides for voters calling for change. Polls show Cuomo with a sizable lead in the race, but Nixon believes she can turn progressive energy into a surprise victory.

Polls in New York City are open 6 a.m.to 9 p.m.

The Cuomo campaign released a statement largely confirming The Post's reporting on the issue - while claiming Schwartz somehow missed the "negative section" of the mailer before giving the green light to distribute it. Leecia Eve, a former Cuomo aide, was in fourth. "He controls the state committee", Nixon said. She later paired up with attorney general hopeful Zephyr Teachout in Manhattan. Maloney, one of just 12 Democrats who represents districts won in 2016 by Donald Trump, must abandon his House race if he becomes the nominee for attorney general.
