Cynthia Nixon Claims That Cold Temps Are 'Notoriously Sexist'

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is scheduled to debate gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon in Long Island on Wednesday night

A top strategist for NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon (D.) called work offices that are overly air-conditioned "sexist" in a request for balmier room temperatures for Wednesday's primary debate between Nixon and incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.). I asked for no favors for friends and I am not a corporate donor to anyone'.

Nixon came equipped with statistics and an array of policy positions on topics like rent control and transit funding, which Cuomo frequently rebuffed as flawed.

If Cuomo can't up his game, there won't be any point in weaseling out of his promise not to join the 2020 presidential race.

Ms Nixon was thinking not only of her own comfort.

Cuomo, who is seeking a third term and has a large lead in public-opinion polls, fired back by pointing to the responsibilities of the governor, including management of a $168 billion budget and responding to natural disasters and crises.

It will be much as McCain himself intended, and as he announced publicly in his final memoir published earlier this year. The McCain-Trump relationship grew heated in 2015 when McCain said Trump's candidacy had "fired up the crazies".

Nixon also hit Cuomo on his experience, saying "I'm not an Albany insider like Governor Cuomo, but I think that experience doesn't mean that much if you're not actually good at governing".

According to The New York Times both teams have been embroiled (pun intended, obviously) in a heated (oh, it's happening) clash over how hot or cold the debate ring at Hofstra University on Long Island should be when the candidates arrive to square off, and tempers are showing no sign of cooling off. This is real life.

Cuomo repeatedly criticized Nixon over her personal taxes, which shows she collects her acting income through an entity known as an S corporation, which comes with certain tax benefits.

'You're in charge of fighting terrorism. You don't need a cable login to access it-just find it on CBSNews.com/live or via the CBS News mobile apps, or access it on your smart TV.

Later, Cuomo said Nixon "lives in a world of fiction" and he "lives in a world of facts".

Getting three points on the board after losing to Manchester City and Chelsea to open up the season will be a big relief for Emery.

"The MTA has been controlled by the state since 1965", Nixon snapped back.

She said Cuomo was either complicit or ignorant about what was going on in his administration.

Hofstra University political scientist Craig Burnett said he didn't see a clear victor in the debate, and that both candidates can claim some accomplishments.

The victor of the Democratic primary faces Republican Marc Molinaro and independent Stephanie Miner in November.

Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans in NY by more than 2-1.
