Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon splits NY voters

With just one day to go before voters cast their ballots in the September 13 gubernatorial primary, Gov. Andrew Cuomo appears positioned to trounce Cynthia Nixon - but appearances can be deceiving.

New Yorkers headed to the polls on Thursday to vote in primaries for statewide races, three months after the state voted for candidates in federal primaries. However, he also added. he doesn't have a clue who she is.

In the state Senate, several progressive challengers are looking to knock off incumbent Democrats who used to caucus independently from mainline Democrats, allowing Republicans to have the majority in the chamber for the past decade.

A Siena College poll released Monday shows Cuomo with a 41 percentage point lead over Nixon heading into Thursday's primary. Politico's Laura Nahmias joins CBSN with more.

The race has featured bitter attacks. Nixon has also said she is a member of the actors union. David Lobl, a former special assistant to Cuomo who is now a campaign volunteer, sent the language to two campaign aides, who created the mailer. For example, if a person wanted to register with a party or switch parties to be able to vote in Thursday's primaries, they needed to register by October 13, 2017, nearly a full year before the actual election. In a 2014 nominating contest, Cuomo defeated his opponent with fewer than 600,000 people voting out of almost 5.9 million registered Democrats in the state.

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

Isaac continues to advance, some watches and warnings issued
Isaac became a tropical storm again approaching the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene was veering northward, no threat to land. The National Hurricane Center said Monday that Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 storm and continuing to intensify.

"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.

The outcome of Thursday's Democratic primary is likely to resonate around the nation, reflecting an ongoing battle within the Democratic Party between moderate incumbents and progressives who say establishment politicians have failed to deliver on liberal priorities.

Nixon, 52, has touted herself as a democratic socialist and a champion of causes such as abortion access, better funding for schools and equal rights for gay and lesbian people.

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. At the same time, he dismissed Nixon as a naive dilettante and mocked her work as an actress. "I didn't say a negative word about my opponent", he said, repeating his claim that he was in the dark about the mailer.

"There are certainly ways we've been able to move the governor to the left, on criminal justice issues, on environmental issues, on political issues".
