Nixon, the former star of "Sex and the City", is also fighting for better education. Supporters rallied to Nixon's defense by pointing to the shoddy basis of the mailer's accusations and the fact that Nixon - who is not herself Jewish - is raising two Jewish sons from a previous relationship.

"Nixon has supported insidious BDS campaign, signing onto letter boycotting Israel", the aide said.

The outcome of the Democratic primary that got underway Thursday will likely resonate around the nation, as it is a particularly high-profile example of the insurgent left-wing that is seeking to oust establishment incumbents who they say have failed to deliver on liberal promises.

While a Nixon victory appears very unlikely, last-minute controversies surrounding the opening of the Gov. Mario M.

The candidates include Fordham University law professor Zephyr Teachout, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Hillary Clinton adviser Leecia Eve.

A Siena College poll released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon heading into Thursday's primary.

Despite the attempts to to have the Post publish the accusation, which is central to the Democratic Party mailer that targeted 7,000 households, Cuomo has vehemently denied he knew about the mailer.

"New Yorkers & all NYCHA residents its time to get JUSTICE", Minaj tweeted.

'But I love her and think if anyone is inclined voting Nixon is cool'.

"To be informed about Andrew Cuomo is to want a change", she said.

"Heads need to roll", said City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who has endorsed Cuomo.
