Cynthia Nixon will also appear on the NYS Gubernatorial ballot

on the WFP line, even if she loses the primary, and could take votes away from Andrew Cuomo in the General Election.

That's how it goes in New York State.

While I admired the tremendous effort Ocasio Cortez put into her stunning primary victory, she is wrong to accuse Joe Crowley of not respected the will of the voters. Joe Crowley congratulated her immediately after the primary.

He simply can't remove himself from the ballot as has been stated in numerous posts here.

I don't blame her for being concerned, because Crowley could conceivably win the General Election if voters in NY-14 select him on the WFP line over her on the Democratic line. The same could conceivably happen with Cynthia Nixon. Should either scenario happen, that too would be the will of the voters.

3. That's not much fun.

 

How can the "left" call Crowley a potentate and the like when you explain it like this. You have to be wrong.

4. She needs to pick up the phone and call him.

 

She's not doing herself any favors here.

Crowley made a pledge in the debate that he would fully endorse her and work vigorously for her campaign if she won the primary. She refused to make the same pledge.

Democrats want more unity, not more divisiveness.

I like Ocasio Cortez, but the ball is in her court, and she needs to start working on unity.

5. She needs to move on.

 

That is clear.

She is not helping herself or her constituency at this point. I have a lot of faith in her. People with zero experience will often look like people with zero experience.
