Cuomo, Nixon exchange blows in tense primary debate

The debate came ahead of the Democratic Party primary on 13 September for the post in the heavily Democratic state of 20 million people.

Andrew Cuomo says he'll serve a full four years and not seek the White House in 2020 if he's elected to a third term.

Nixon, a former co-star of HBO's "Sex and the City", went after Cuomo early on, calling him an "Albany insider" and a corrupt liar.

Greg Gutfeld said that, if the auditorium is set to 76 degrees as Nixon desires, the crowd "is going to despise her" because the additional body heat from the crowd will likely raise the room temperature into the 80s.

He described Mr Trump, a Republican, as "the largest threat" faced by New Yorkers, a greater danger than climate change, extreme weather or terrorism, and pointedly criticised Mr Trump for his anti-immigration rhetoric and desire to limit access to abortion.

At Long Island's Hofstra University, the two candidates engaged in an often contentious debate, which included accusations of lying on both sides.

It didn't take long for Cuomo to shift the conversation to his differences with President Donald Trump.

Critics have accused Trump of being insufficiently critical of Putin.

"The Five" reacted Tuesday to the Nixon camp's claim, ahead of the WCBS debate at Hofstra University.

Cuomo, who has advertised several leftward policy shifts since Nixon began threatening to run, responded sometimes by saying he was already achieving what she proposed, and sometimes saying she would leave voters ruined.

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

Nixon has an uphill battle in the primary - Cuomo has a 33.5 percentage point advantage in the Real Clear Politics average of polling. "As soon as you do". To this, Nixon, accusing Cuomo of diverting money from the transit budget to other things, produced her best zinger of the night.

That decision could have major implications for Morrison's government, which has a parliamentary majority of just one seat. After a week of chaos and infighting in his party the Prime Minister Scott Morrison has declared the healing starts now.

Nixon chimed in and replied: 'How am I a corporate donor? Asked about making it easier for workers to strike, Nixon said that she meant to empower people who simply wanted fair wages and saw no other resort.

The Democratic primary victor faces Republican Marc Molinaro, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and independent Stephanie Miner in November.
