NY: Nixon Attacks Gov. Cuomo From The Left

This primary race will likely become one of the most closely-watched of the 2018 cycle.

From The New York Times:

The contest will likely become one of the marquee Democratic primaries in the nation, as Ms. Nixon is widely expected to challenge Mr. Cuomo from the political left. Her campaign immediately cast Mr. Cuomo as a "centrist and Albany insider," and some of her initial rhetoric on inequality echoed Senator Bernie Sanders. 'We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty,' she said in a video posted on Twitter announcing her candidacy.

...

The language on her website was more aggressive. There, she accused Mr. Cuomo of 'inhumane budgets' and of 'selling New York off to the highest bidder.'"
