Gubernatorial race takes top billing on Democratic primary day

Cynthia Nixon ordered a bizarre bagel that consisted of lox capers and cream cheese on a cinnamon raisin bagel on Monday. Nixon posted this

NY governor Andrew Cuomo beat back a challenge from his left in Thursday's Democratic primary, defeating opponent Cynthia Nixon to win nomination for a third term.

Meanwhile, the New York Post reported on Tuesday that a Cuomo campaign official had pitched a story to a reporter at the newspaper about Nixon's opposition to Israeli settlements and her support of the BDS movement against Israel a day before the mailer was delivered.

"This is an important election". And that I can't vote.

"There is a divisiveness that is coming out of Washington that I think is cancerous to our nation", Cuomo said.

Cuomo also claimed to have no knowledge of a Democratic Party mailer that questioned Nixon's support for Jewish people - despite Cuomo's control of the party and a recent $2.5 million contribution to its campaign operations. Politico's Laura Nahmias joins CBSN with more.

"I am the mother of Jewish children".

Photos of Hurricane Florence from space are truly scary to behold
Landfall was expected sometime late Thursday and FEMA officials said Wednesday was the last day for people to get out safely. Jeff Byard of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said it was imperative locals heed the evacuation warnings.


Outside Wadleigh High School in Harlem, four out of five voters who stopped to speak to AFP said they voted for Nixon. "He needs to say not only is this inappropriate, he needs to say that it's completely untrue".

It's possible that no matter who wins, both Cuomo and Nixon could appear on the November ballot anyway, thanks to third-party nominations.

"Just looking for change".

"She's taking responsibility, for one, right?"

Not only does he need to win big, but his lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul, is facing a tight race. "There needs to be a really strong front", he said.

Cynthia Nixon is sticking by her controversial bagel order.

Gunman kills five people in deadly rampage before shooting himself
Authorities are interviewing 30 witnesses and processing multiple crime scenes to piece together what led up to the violence. Having already killed three people, the suspect went to a nearby residence, where he confronted two others.


Mayor Bill de Blasio cast his ballot in Brooklyn, though he has not endorsed either candidate.

Republicans already nominated Marcus Molinaro as their candidate for governor.

Cynthia Nixon may call herself a "progressive" candidate running for NY governor, but it's her radical bagel order that's raising a few eyebrows.

Up-and-coming Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a message from a Stony Brook professor saying some ballots for the attorney general race had been misprinted, which had caused confusion and led people to vote for more than one candidate in the race.

That contest, which also features Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of the state's 18th Congressional District, and New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, is still too close to call.

Two of his former top aides were convicted this year on corruption charges related to his signature economic development programs, giving ample ammunition to Nixon - as well as his general election opponents.
