A landslide victory for Carter in the IL primary that year made some voters think Kennedy's campaign was done, so they began to think of the NY primary as a referendum on the president, The Washington Post reported at the time.
NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon called on her primary opponent, sitting Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to apologize for a mailer paid for by the state Democratic Party headed by Cuomo which questioned her support for issues important to Jewish voters. Williams, who would be the state's first black lieutenant governor, has attacked Hochul for conservative votes and statements she made while representing a Republican-leaning House seat and argued that she has enabled Cuomo's worst instincts. [It's] lying about an individual.
Councilman Mark Levine, another Cuomo supporter, warned the sleazy tactic could hurt the fight against true anti-Semites.
While a state Democratic Party official said earlier in the week that it would let Nixon send out a mailer of her choosing to the same population, her campaign manager, Rebecca Katz, told Gothamist, "there's been no formal offer", and they received no response to their request for a robocall denouncing the flier's incorrect claims.
No matter who you vote for, Pehme said the most important thing to do is to go out and vote.
One of the candidates in the Democratic primary, Zephyr Teachout, pledged this week to investigate Mr. Cuomo should she win. Cuomo came into office eight years ago promising to reform the state government.
Cuomo's campaign said the "inappropriate" mailer was "wrong" and should not have gone out.
"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", Smith said.
Meanwhile, Nixon campaigned across the city.
State attorney general candidate Tish James was also at the pep rally, which was attended by dozens of local and state lawmakers.
The challengers campaigned together, too.
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.
