Wow.


Apparently this has some sort of context to Mario running against Ed Koch?

3. Cynthia Nixon says her fight does not end with vote - 'I'm not going anywhere'

<snip>

"Despite lacking any political experience, Ms Nixon has managed to build an impressively-sized liberal base during her campaign against Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo. And even though she’s trailing the governor by 41 points in the latest polls, she’s hoping for a surprise upset victory in Thursday’s primary election — similar to the ones other firebrand candidates have seen across the country this year.

If all else fails, Ms Nixon tells me she’ll remain a prominent voice in New York politics. When asked if she’d consider running again, or if she’d bow out after a potential loss in the upcoming elections, her answer was simple: "I’m not going anywhere."

<snip>

"Ms Nixon’s campaign has hatched a backup plan in the event of her election loss. The Working Families Party has agreed to provide her their space on the November ballot, allowing her to appear as a contender against Mr Cuomo even if he secures the Democratic Party’s nomination in Thursday's primaries.

The governor appears to be fully aware of that threat. His campaign has reportedly began scheduling fundraising events to arrive immediately after the primaries, including one as soon as next week."
