NYC Mayor de Blasio on Whether Cynthia Nixon Can Beat Cuomo: "Unquestionably"

The actress is challenging incumbent Dem Gov Andrew Cuomo from the left.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Thursday that former "Sex and the City" star and political newcomer Cynthia Nixon can "unquestionably" beat incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary.

"Do you think she can win?" de Blasio was asked.

"Unquestionably," de Blasio answered. "In a race with two prominent candidates and at a time where people are very distrustful of the status quo, anything can happen."

Nixon has mounted a serious challenge to Cuomo with her outsider status and criticism of how the government has been handling the persistent subway failures in New York City. Nixon has received several significant endorsements from progressive groups like the New York Working Families Party. Meanwhile, Cuomo has received establishment support, including the endorsement of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
