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 wou ...[text shortened]... ething along the line of "if you can't handle Cynthia Nixon, you definitely can't handle Trump"
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.
