A campaign spokesperson said that Schwartz was reviewing campaign literature and did not flip the mailer over to see the "negative side" of it, only the other side promoting Cuomo as a friend of the Jewish community. "Know me by my enemies".

In addition, the New York Post published an email from a Cuomo campaign aide, who they chose to keep nameless, in which the aide pitches an article slamming Nixon for supporting the "insidious" BDS campaign.

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. That sparked outrage from foodies who wouldn't dare upset the savory balance of a traditional bagel and schmear, especially when paired with lox, onions, capers and tomato as Nixon requested. She could have brought up his failure to address gerrymandering, an issue that Cuomo ran on in 2010.

"As governor, I believe it's New York's obligation to stand up and lead, and lead against a lot of these changes in Washington that are totally against who we are and what we believe", said Gov. Cuomo.

His tenure has been marked by a cloud of corruption in recent months.

And in July, Mr. Cuomo was dragged into ugly headlines after the architect of his six-year-old plan to revitalize upstate NY - dubbed "Buffalo Billion" - was convicted in a bid-rigging scheme involving state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Instead, they took a victory lap by saying Nixon's primary helped push Cuomo to the left.

Cardinal Wuerl to discuss possible resignation with Pope Francis
The Vatican has known since at least 2000 that McCarrick would invite seminarians to his New Jersey beach house and into his bed. Wuerl has also been embroiled in the allegations of molestation leveled at former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.


Nixon further portrayed the governor, whose public service stretches back to his tenure in President Bill Clinton's Department of Housing and Urban Development, including almost four years as secretary, as insufficiently liberal for today's Democratic Party. NY is the only state in the country which has separate election days for federal and statewide primaries. But Sanders steered clear of the governor's race. Cuomo has said she is inexperienced and naive.

One of the candidates in the Democratic primary, Zephyr Teachout, pledged this week to investigate Mr. Cuomo should she win.

But Cuomo secured key endorsements from Democrats such as Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden - as well as musician Nicki Minaj - and influential groups such as the National Organization for Women and Planned Parenthood. The other candidates are Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Cuomo official Leecia Eve.

State attorney general candidate Tish James was also at the pep rally, which was attended by dozens of local and state lawmakers. Mr. Sheinkopf said. "It is too close to call".

"Cuomo will face Republican Marc Molinaro and independent Stephanie Miner in November's general election".
