Cynthia Nixon-Andrew Cuomo debate

  • New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is scheduled to debate gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon in Long Island on Wednesday night

"I'm not an Albany insider like Governor Cuomo, but experience doesn't mean that much if you're not actually good at governing", she said, referring to the seat of NY government in the state capital.

At Long Island's Hofstra University, the two candidates engaged in an often contentious debate, which included accusations of lying on both sides.

The primary election is set for September 13.

Identifying key factors of running the state such as fire management and the subway system Cuomo argued that the "main risk to the state of New York" is President Trump, and that the governor "need [s] to know how" to stand on the front lines.

Critics have accused Trump of being insufficiently critical of Putin.

Referencing the president's attacks on him earlier this month for saying America "was never that great", Cuomo said he stands up to Trump, but Nixon disagreed, and said the incumbent backed down fairly quickly.

Polls suggest Cuomo has a more than 30 percentage point lead over Nixon, who also trails substantially in fundraising.

Nixon interrupted Cuomo's answers on several occasions, visibly irritating him.

Verizon slowed internet speed for first responders to fire
After the second throttling experience at the Pawnee Fire in June 2018, the department upgraded to a slightly more expensive plan. From now on, Verizon will lift restrictions and provide full network access to first responders during disasters, Maiorana said.

"Excuse me, can you stop interrupting me?" Cuomo asked at one point Wednesday night, prompting cheers from union workers in the crowd.

"The governor of NY is not a job about politics, it's not about activism", he said. "As soon as you do". Right at the start, Cuomo said that part of the job of New York's governor is to "fight Donald Trump, who is the main risk to the state of NY".

Kramer reminded Nixon again her time was up.

Cynthia Nixon was the clear victor of Wednesday's Democratic gubernatorial debate, and not just because she had the easier job of offering lefty pie in the sky without the burden of ever having had to deliver on a campaign promise.

Ms Nixon called Mr Cuomo a corrupt "corporate Democrat" and defended herself as a champion of the poor and of minorities.

Nixon balked: "I am a person". He criticized Nixon for releasing four years of tax returns on a recent Friday afternoon, when reporters typically are taking off for the weekend and people pay less attention to the news, calling her second only to President Donald Trump in her lack of transparency.

The victor of Nixon and Cuomo's primary will face Republican Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro in the November general election.
