New York Democrats decide governor, attorney general races
NEW YORK (AP) — Democrats across New York are choosing their candidates for governor, attorney general and the state Legislature in the nation’s last primary election of 2018.
The most-watched race is a fiercely fought contest between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and activist actress Cynthia Nixon.
She’s a high-profile example of an insurgent left-wing trying to oust establishment incumbents.
President Donald Trump might want to keep an eye on the attorney general primary.
Fordham law professor Zephyr Teachout, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Hillary Clinton adviser Leecia Eve have all vowed to be a legal thorn in the Republican president’s side.
Polls show that race very close going into election day.
Voting began in some cities early Thursday and starts in other places at noon.
