Cuomo holds 41-point lead over Nixon in NY
Nixon was outraged at the suggestion that she's anti-Semitic.
The survey conducted by Siena College shows Cuomo leading Nixon by 41 points; topping the "Sex and the City" star by a margin of 63% to 22%.
In the race for lieutenant governor, Mr. Cuomo's running mate, the incumbent Kathy Hochul, also held a comfortable lead, 43 percent to 21 percent, over Jumaane Williams, the New York City councilman who is aligned with Ms. Nixon.
Stewart, Storm sweep Mystics for WNBA title
As much as the team may be disappointed with not winning a championship right now, the Mystics did have a successful season. Delle Donne waxed poetic about how close the team has become. "Them being at home helps that cause even more so".
According to engineers, the concerning sound was first given off by the rickety remnants of the adjacent Tappan Zee on Friday evening, leading them to fear a "potentially unsafe situation" involving the former structure collapsing on the new crossing.

Cuomo did not take questions from reporters in Syracuse, but while in Rochester, he did respond to the controversy surrounding recent mailers sent out by the Democratic Party, that alluded to his opponent Cynthia Nixon as being weak on anti-Semitism. "So it's totally up to them", Cuomo said. "It was wrong, it was inappropriate, and they are offering the Nixon campaign a mailer if they want it", he said.
The mailer says Nixon "won't stand strong" for Jewish residents and has been silent on rising anti-Semitism. He's offering to pay for the Nixon campaign to send out its own mailer but it's unclear whether there's time before election day.
The governor went about his campaign business Monday, however, locking up more institutional support in the form of endorsements from the state's entire Democratic congressional delegation. Nixon is campaigning hard to Cuomo's left, energized by a string of other insurgent wins in Democratic primaries elsewhere in the United States.
