The Wall Street Journal: Cuomo beats Nixon in New York Democratic primary


Gov. Andrew Cuomo fended off a left-flank challenge led by Cynthia Nixon in a Democratic Primary Thursday, according to the Associated Press.

Cuomo, who is seeking a third term, ran on the strength of his experience and has spent the campaign attacking President Donald Trump. He was endorsed by establishment figures in the Democratic Party, including former Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as most of the state’s labor unions.

In advertisements and speeches, Cuomo touted a strict gun-control bill as well as infrastructure investments around the state, including a replacement for the Tappan Zee Bridge over the Hudson River.
