Nixon, who raises her two children Jewish, accused Cuomo of orchestrating the apparent smear campaign, which she called an "attack not only on my family, but on all New Yorkers". Party Director Geoff Berman later said the mailer was a mistake, and Cuomo's spokeswoman acknowledged that two former aides volunteering on the campaign were behind the piece.

Despite enthusiasm for Nixon in some quarters and on social media, Cuomo has held substantial leads against Nixon in the polls.

"We have a chance to strike a blow for real progressives", she said on Tuesday on WNYC radio. To that end, she has run aggressively on a campaign to fix the subway, pinning the decrepit state of the system on her opponent.

NY has a notoriously opaque voting system. She's called Cuomo a bully and says she represents a wave of liberals eager to take a greater role in American politics.

Cuomo also claimed to have no knowledge of the Democratic Party mailer that questioned Nixon's support for Jewish people - despite Cuomo's control of the party and a recent $2.5 million contribution to its campaign operations.

The race for attorney general also could leave Mr. Cuomo smarting. Bernie Sanders and the editorial board of the New York Times, which said she is well prepared to serve as a firewall against the Trump administration and keep tabs on "a state government in which ethics can seem a mere inconvenience".

Approved and paid for by the New York State Democratic Committee, the mailer accused Nixon of remaining "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism", and supporting BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), a worldwide movement to boycott Israeli goods and cultural exports. James has the backing of Cuomo, while Teachout is endorsed by Sen.
