Cuomo completely flopped in the Democratic debate

'She Must Be Goldilocks': The Five Reacts to Cynthia Nixon Team Claiming Sexism Over Cold Debate Room

The crowd was animated and responsive as the opponents interrupted each other during particularly passionate moments of the debate.

In one of the more heated exchanges, he criticized Nixon's setting up of a corporation in order to file her income taxes, an arrangement she said was not unusual among actors and other freelance workers.

"I said I would not run against him, because he is not corrupt like you are", said Nixon.

"Can you stop lying?" she replied.

The Nixon video highlights what the campaign says are similarities between Cuomo and Trump when it comes to their treatment of the press, handling of sexual harassment and coming from prominent families.

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.

But her feisty campaign has garnered high profile attention and finally drew Cuomo into a live debate at Hofstra University on Long Island.

John McCain rival claims pre-death announcement was a political ploy
Hume is pointing out that, even in the Senator's death, Trump can't bring himself to say "a kind word" for the man. The McCain-Trump relationship grew heated in 2015 when McCain said Trump's candidacy had "fired up the crazies".

Cuomo, who is seeking his third term as New York Governor, pledged not to run for President against Donald Trump in 2020, instead pledging to serve four full years as governor, if re-elected. But Nixon's senior campaign strategist said she is offering the types of solutions for which Democratic voters are asking.

At one point he cited a quote Nixon had given to the New York Times, saying that she might not have run against someone like former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg. "We're talking about adults and effectively, marijuana has been legal in NY for some time and it's time we made it legal for everyone". The pair sparred over taxes, the subway system and whether or not Nixon is a corporation. "We have either incompetence or corruption, which is it?" she charged. She advised anyone attending a Cuomo event "take a coat, or maybe a blanket". Cuomo accused Nixon of not being transparent with her taxes.

"I'm a person", Nixon said.

Polls suggest Cuomo has a more than 30 percentage point lead over Nixon, who also trails substantially in fundraising.

"Yes", Cuomo said. "Yes, yes and yes".

Cuomo responded by promising "a couple of facts, not that they're all that relevant", and Nixon accused him of dissembling about the state's ownership of the city's transportation system, a perennial cause of argument. She couldn't just "snap her fingers" and enact policies like ethics reform, he said. "Andrew Cuomo came in here as the front-runner, and he left here as the front-runner". Statewide universal health care, he said, "reminds me of the story of the doctor who says, if you survive the operation, you're going to have a long, healthy life".

Nixon disagreed, responding, "You stood up to him about as well as he stood up to Putin".
