Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon swap insults in NY governor's debate

On Wednesday afternoon, his campaign unveiled a new ad - which it says will air during the debate - featuring old clips of Nixon praising the governor before she chose to run against him.

She's plainly well to his left, even though he's been moving in that direction for years now.

Arguments erupted over the degree to which each candidate has opposed President TrumpDonald John TrumpKoch group pours almost M into ads to boost three GOP Senate candidates Gillum wins stunner and other takeaways from Arizona, Florida McSally prevails in nasty Arizona GOP Senate primary MORE, New York City's subway system, health care and corruption during the 60-minute debate. The governor fought back, charging that Nixon's campaign promises just aren't feasible due to legal and financial constraints.

"My opponent lives in the world of fiction", he said.

"I am a person", Nixon said.

"Can you stop lying?", Nixon retorted.

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.

His new Cabinet includes Christopher Pyne as the new defense minister and Dutton returning as minister of home affairs. The new prime minister unveiled his "new generation" cabinet on Sunday.

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.

Cuomo laid out a series of reforms he said the state should adopt to deal with Albany corruption. The legislation, which Cuomo has refused to back, has thrice passed in the Assembly but failed to come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Nixon, an actor who starred in Sex and the City and is making her first run for office, pointed to her experience as a public-school parent and an activist for LGBT rights and education funding.

"My opponent is upset with the Koch brothers because they're the only ones who take more corporate money than she does", said Cuomo, a zinger that made little sense when aimed at Nixon. Cuomo described himself as a progressive who had won real victories against the Trump administration.

"Marijuana has been legal for white people for a long time", said Nixon.

Nixon interrupted Cuomo's answers on several occasions, visibly irritating him.
