Cuomo, Nixon exchange blows in tense primary debate

Cuomo and Nixon trade barbs at debate

Cuomo, a second-term incumbent, pledged not to run for president in 2020 during the debate at Hofstra University with Nixon, a fellow Democrat who directly and repeatedly challenged Cuomo's record on progressive issues during the hour-long moderated discussion.

"She lives in the world of fiction". On Wednesday afternoon, his campaign unveiled a new ad - which it says will air during the debate - featuring old clips of Nixon praising the governor before she chose to run against him.

Identifying key factors of running the state such as fire management and the subway system Cuomo argued that the "main risk to the state of New York" is President Trump, and that the governor "need [s] to know how" to stand on the front lines.

He said he had experience to boast and Ms Nixon did not.

"And you're a corporation", Cuomo said smiling.

"I'm going to fight with him", Cuomo said.

Nixon disagreed, responding, "You stood up to him about as well as he stood up to Putin".

Karius will make his loan deal permanent if he makes enough appearances for Besitkas and the club qualify for European football. And the 30-year-old is not happy with being stuck on the bench despite receiving offers for a temporary move away from Anfield.

It's telling that the debate-the only time Cuomo and Nixon will meet face to face before next month's primary-is airing on a tape delay, because while unpredictability is good for TV, it's not always good when you're a politician. The current governor has a long record of government service and had raised almost 50 times more money than Nixon, according to financial disclosures filed last month.

"Excuse me, can you stop interrupting", Cuomo exclaimed.

It also means Nixon's depiction of Cuomo as the epitome of political double-dealing has to stick.

Cuomo shot back at Nixon, claiming she lives in a "world of fiction" while he lives in the real world while alleging that she doesn't understand the challenges of leading NY. She couldn't just "snap her fingers" and enact policies like ethics reform, he said.

"What I would say is that we're not talking about children smoking marijuana", she said. He is attacking everything we believe in NY.

At one point, Cuomo went as far to call Nixon a corporation. He said the only "corporate Democrat" ― a common pejorative used by candidates like Nixon, who was endorsed by the New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America ― was her. "Are you a corporation?"
