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

Cuomo swiftly went on the offense, attacking Nixon for filing taxes as a corporation rather than as an individual, a common practice for entertainers.

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.

Cuomo had been considered a potential presidential contender.

This will be the only debate between Cuomo and Nixon.

"Experience doesn't mean that much if you're not actually good at governing", Nixon quipped.

The debate was tense at times.

"Excuse me, can you stop interrupting", Cuomo exclaimed. Cuomo asked at one point.

Liverpool hire specialist throw-in coach, who is somehow NOT Rory Delap
Jurgen Klopp has improved the Liverpool FC defence over the past nine months with the additions of some key personnel. Fabinho has revealed that the reason he is yet to feature for Liverpool this season is a purely tactical one.

"Can you stop lying?" asked Nixon.

She accused him of empowering Republicans in Albany and not doing enough to address political corruption, income inequality or New York City's aging subways.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, who supports Cuomo, said that Nixon failed to offer any solutions for suburban voters.

She voted for him before she voted against him.

Cuomo went on to say: 'You are a corporation. you file taxes as a corporation. you are a corporation'. "How am I with labor?"

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

Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans in NY by more than 2-1. "Only Donald Trump has done less transparency on his taxes than my opponent", he said. She advised anyone attending a Cuomo event "take a coat, or maybe a blanket". "Why would the next four years be any different?" The moderators allowed the crosstalk to continue uninterrupted. He is attacking everything we believe in NY. That theme persisted throughout, with the governor often bringing up the his role in fighting Trump, including through their Twitter exchanges.

Sessions Rebuffs Trump Claim That He's Not In 'Control' Of DOJ
"I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action", Sessions said in a direct response to Trump. But Trump never said he was considering the pardon in the interview that aired on Thursday.

"We now have the most aggressive rebuilding program in the state's history".

The president served as a reliable line of argument for the governor as he fended off Nixon's attacks against his progressive bona fides.

He earlier objected to Nixon calling him a "corporate Democrat", saying repeatedly: "You are a corporation", and asking as Nixon stared back at him: "Are you a corporation?"

Polls suggest Cuomo has a more than 30 percentage point lead over Nixon, who also trails substantially in fundraising.

The debate focused little on substantive policy questions, with Cuomo touting his infrastructure achievements and Nixon outlining how to accomplish single-payer health care in the state.

"I do work to protect workers and to give rights to workers, and paid family leave is one of the things that does it", said Cuomo. When Nixon dinged the governor for accepting donations from the billionaire Republican mega-donor Koch brothers, Cuomo returned to Nixon's taxes: "She's upset with the Koch brothers because they're the only ones who take more tax cuts than she does".

"You stood up to (Trump) about as well as he stands up to (Russian President Vladimir) Putin", Nixon said. A rare mention of upstate came in a question about state troopers. They have already been vocal about a perceived bias toward New York Governor Cuomo.

Arsenal vs West Ham player ratings: Everyone breathe
Although its a third defeat in a row, West Ham can count themselves unlucky to not come away from the Emirates with something. He tweeted: "I confirm once again the information that gather and I mentioned live in the Open game on @ESPNagora.

"I will serve four years as governor of the state of New York", Cuomo told the audience, adding that the "only caveat is if God strikes me dead". Nixon pounced, over and over again, depicting Cuomo, a political princeling and career politician, as a consummate Albany insider. "This is a race that I'm running on my own", she said.
