Major New York progressive group endorses Cynthia Nixon

Model Released

The Working Families Party also endorsed New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams for Lieutenant Governor.

When the nod becomes official at the party's nominating convention next month, it would give Nixon a critical line on the November ballot if she loses the Democratic primary in September.

Since announcing her candidacy in March, Nixon has attacked Cuomo for his close ties to wealthy corporate donors and for allowing the state legislature to be controlled by Republicans and Democrats who caucus with them.

The small but influential Working Families Party endorsed Cuomo in 2010 and 2014.

Labor unions allied with Cuomo said Friday they would withdraw from the Working Families Party.

"I'm not naming names, but anybody who says they would not accept the endorsement of the Working Families Party is not a true progressive in New York State", Williams said. It's possible that pressure from progressives and people like Nixon are convincing him to possibly evolve on the issue.

Although Nixon's campaign has been seen as a long shot, obtaining one of the most sought-after endorsements might make her a more serious challenger to the two-time governor.

New Yorkers won't have any problem lighting up if Miranda gets her way.

"The schism between the progressive unions who founded the WFP and some of its member organization is unfortunate", Fashouer said. Despite the attention here campaign's received online, most polls show her trailing Cuomo by almost 50 points. "We can build a movement that can win, but only if we all come together".
