Cynthia Nixon, the telegenic, left-leaning Sex and the City actress turned activist, faces the electoral battle of her life Thursday in her long-shot bid to unseat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. "So one of the most important issues to me is full funding more particularly more equitable funding for education which is something that I've been fighting for 17 years", said Nixon. "If you like it, tell your friends, no matter who they vote for", Bee said, with one exception: "Don't tell Ted Cruz, I don't want to have to give him money".
On Sunday, Cynthia Nixon became the latest aspiring office-holder to briefly lose her mind while attempting to eat on the campaign trail, when she ordered-in public and on purpose-a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox from Zabar's on the Upper West Side.
"With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can't take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who won't stand strong for our Jewish communities", the mailer said.
While it certainly seems that Nixon has Cuomo rattled, it appears he has little to worry about in Thursday's vote.

Throughout the campaign, Nixon has hammered Cuomo for not investing enough in New York City's beleaguered transit system, for not addressing political corruption and for failing to deliver on economic development promises upstate.
Should Cuomo win, he would be heavily favored against Republican Marc Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, in the November general election. Felder has voted to keep Republicans in control of the state Senate to bring resources back to his majority-Jewish district; Dilan is being challenged by Julia Salazar, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who received glowing early coverage, then was buffeted by accusations that she had falsely let herself be portrayed as a working-class immigrant.
The state Democratic Party funded the mailer after Cuomo contributed $2.5 million.
Yet despite enthusiasm for Nixon in some quarters and on social media, Cuomo has held substantial leads against Nixon in the polls. The Times, which endorsed Cuomo, called the mailer "a disgrace", and Randi Weingarten, a Cuomo supporter whose wife is the rabbi at a synagogue that Nixon attends, said the notion that Nixon is anti-Semitic is a "baseless lie", New York Magazine reported.
