'Sex in City' actress Nixon in tense United States election debate

'She Must Be Goldilocks': The Five Reacts to Cynthia Nixon Team Claiming Sexism Over Cold Debate Room

Mr Cuomo, who has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2020, said that if he is re-elected governor he will serve out his term. "Which section of the sentence is worse?"

Nixon, a longtime liberal activist, went after the incumbent early in the debate, calling Cuomo corrupt and a liar.

Perhaps mindful of Richard Nixon's disastrous sheen in his 1960 television debate with John F Kennedy, not to mention Tony Blair's saturated turn at the Labour conference in 2000, the governor is known to prefer far cooler conditions...

"Can you stop lying", Nixon responded.

"I'm not an Albany insider like Governor Cuomo, but experience doesn't mean that much if you're not actually good at governing", she said, referring to the seat of NY government in the state capital.

The debate became heated following a question about New York's MTA, which Nixon said Cuomo had left underfunded. "It's about management. This is real life".

Hours before the debate, it emerged that Cuomo ordered the NY attorney general's office to halt an investigation into whether Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. mishandled 2015 allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein after the governor received $25,000 from the firm representing the disgraced Hollywood mogul.

At Long Island's Hofstra University, the two candidates engaged in an often contentious debate, which included accusations of lying on both sides.

There has always been speculation that Cuomo has aspirations for higher office and he is widely considered a possible 2020 contender. "We're talking about adults and effectively, marijuana has been legal in NY for some time and it's time we made it legal for everyone". He has to be stopped.

"I am a person", said Nixon, to applause.

NY state governor Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon, Broadway actor and former Sex and the City TV star, clashed and swapped insults in their only scheduled, televised debate before their primary race to decide the Democratic nomination for the governorship. "We have either incompetence or corruption, which is it?" she charged. We don't need a corrupt corporate Democrat in Albany as his main opposition.

He is just like President Donald Trump. "He is trying to change the rights and values of New Yorkers and the first line of defense is NY and the governor leads that fight and you need to know how to do it". His only real defense on the subways, meanwhile, was to insist the city needs to pay its fair share - which doesn't explain how the system fell into crisis on his watch. He touted the state's many lawsuits against the presidents and New York's reputation as being the progressive stalwart in the fight against Trump's agenda.

Cuomo said he's the right person to lead resistance to the Trump administration's policies in NY.

"Yeah", Cuomo said. He hesitated for a moment.
