    In a race of who could spend more money, Cuomo easily defeated Cynthia Nixon, spending 8 million dollars in the last 3 weeks of campaign, with 15 million since july. Nixon was nowhere close, with less than 500k because she stubbornly only accepted money from small donors.


    Yeah, he also won governorship.

    Yay!

    Another establishment democrat wins in New York.

    In other news, the sun rose again and the sky remains blue, indicating that God is a Progressive.

    So when does Trump get impeached?

    Nixon never had a chance as I told you months ago; New Yorkers are too savvy to vote for a neophyte celebrity to run their State. Her insistence on running and some liberals insistence on supporting her did succeed in running off some more experienced progressives who might have had a shot against Cuomo.

    Thanks for the unrelated and unsolicited opinion.

    I know what you think of her and her race and i couldn't care less. Like i can't even.

    I was making a point on the ludicrous things you permit when it comes to campaign financing. But you debate whatever you want, no need to stay on topic.

    As a side note, what does it say about someone who would rather retreat from a confrontation than stand up to a "neophyte celebrity"? About the progressives that are so keen on changing the world but would rather not have to go against the scary Cynthia Nixon. Maybe something along the line of "if you can't handle Cynthia Nixon, you definitely can't handle Trump"

    I'm not sure anyone with the name Nixon has a chance of winning anything.

    Don't worry, Mr. never did anything wrong Trump will have his day in court. Several I suspect. He may be a god to you but he is a would be dictator. You haven't even considered the reasons he licks Putin's boots or pretending Un is a friend. He would LOVE to have the dictatorial powers of either of those despots.

    But that's ok with you, you WANT a dictatorship and FUK the democratic process. THAT is apparently your goal.

    There is plenty of money in New York even if you just rely on small donors (which Nixon didn't http://time.com/money/5344502/cynthia-nixon-campaign-governor-celebrity-donors/).
    However, people generally aren't as likely to give money to a lost cause late in a campaign. Nixon was never anywhere near Cuomo in the polls, so it's not surprising her fundraising fell off as compared to the Governor's.

    Moreover, money isn't everything in politics. Joe Crowley outraised Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by more than 10-1 and lost decisively. https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/26/politics/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-joe-crowley-new-york-14-primary/index.html

    And Alessandra Biaggi was outspent by more than 8-1 by turncoat State Senator Jeff Klein but easily beat him in a key race in the Bronx. https://www.lohud.com/story/news/politics/elections/2018/09/14/alessandra-biaggi-defeats-jeff-klein-state-senate-race/1296703002/

    As Biaggi said: “If this does not prove that the political currency of our time is people over money, I don’t know what does,” http://www.norwoodnews.org/id=26628&story=senator-jeff-klein-bronx-political-heavyweight-loses-to-alessandria-biaggi/

    Overall, it was an excellent primary election season for progressives in New York.

    That analysis is laughable; Joe Klein the leader of the IDC was defeated in the Bronx, which went for Cuomo by almost a 5:1 margin. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/09/13/us/elections/results-new-york-primary-elections.html Two other IDC Senators were beaten in Queens where Cuomo got about 73% of the vote. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/13/nyregion/state-senate-election-results-idc-klein.html

    The idea that it was Cynthia Nixon voters who toppled the IDC is baseless.

    Cynthia and Richard Nixon appear so much alike that it would confuse most voters! (sarcasm)
