Liberal Party Won’t Split Vote in NY Gov Race

Associated Press

Craig Burnett, assistant professor of political science, was interviewed by the Associated Press about Cynthia Nixon challenging Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in this year’s Democratic primary.

While Cuomo is vulnerable on some issues and Nixon is recognizable to the public, she has a tough road ahead of her because: “He has the money. He has the know-how. He has the campaign structure. It will be a huge battle for her.”

The article says that although the Working Families Party has endorsed Nixon as the Democratic nominee, the organization’s leaders said that they will meet with her if she loses the September primary to find a way to avoid splitting the liberal vote in November.
