It seems likely to derail Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner's as well.
This is what you get when you practice freak show politics; stunts and neophytes are rewarded over actual qualified candidates.
"freakshow" and "circus"
yeah, nixon is horrible. with such agenda as "wealth inequality is obscene in ny, let's do something about it" or "hey, so, healthcare? maybe that should be a thing for all?"
"stunts and neophytes are rewarded over actual qualified candidates"
no. it's not a stunt to realize andrew cuomo has 30 freakin million dollars from corporate donors and will never do anything for the other 99%. that issues that you care about will never be adressed by him or others like him no matter how "qualified" they are.
Cynthia Nixon did nothing to warrant these rabid attacks. She doesn't have scandals of sexism/racism/whateverism. Whenever she speaks she appears quite intelligent and more importantly, decent. You don't like her because you think that she takes away votes from the candidates you like? You don't like her because you think NY is such a fragile ecosystem that she will obliterate at the first document she signs? You don't like her because you like Cuomo?
It is your right not to like her. It is your right not to vote for her. You even have the right to whine about your candidate missing votes because she "took" them from him. You also have the right to call her candidacy a freakshow and hope that maybe someone will agree with you after Trump showed you what freakshow really means.
You should however take a chill pill and realize everyone has the right to run and everyone has the right to vote whoever they want or not vote at all. It's not bernie bros' fault that Clinton lost, it's her fault that she was incapable to win them over.
