Cynthia Nixon wins Working Families Party endorsement

Actress-turned-politician Cynthia Nixon has garnered a big endorsement as she seeks the democratic nomination for governor of NY.
Nixon says she was honored to receive the endorsement Saturday and "inspired by the enthusiasm of progressive working-class members of the party". That didn't work, however, and large local chapters of the SEIU and Communications Workers of America both left the WFP on Friday as a result, though they were not the first unions to split from the party since it nearly endorsed Cuomo's last left-liberal challenger, Zephyr Teachout, in 2014.
Her opponent, Governor Cuomo, has taken the avoidant "let's do more research" approach.
He narrowly won the party's nod in 2014 over primary challenger Zephyr Teachout, and he faced the prospect of losing to Nixon on Saturday.
The Working Families Party was started 20 years ago as a labor-backed, third-party effort to influence state and local elections, and it has had success in helping candidates in the field with volunteers and union endorsements. Cuomo soon followed to say he too would not seek the party's nod. NYPAN, the main New York State affiliate of Our Revolution, came out of Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and has grown to 30 chapters and 8 affiliates throughout the state with thousands of grassroots members.
After the vote, the governor's campaign issued a statement, saying, in part "The governor's record of progressive accomplishment is unmatched from delivering a $15 minimum wage, marriage equality, the strongest gun safety laws in the nation, free college tuition, paid family leave, ending fingerprinting for food stamps, and a record $27 billion in funding for education".
Cuomo has held a large lead against Nixon in recent polls.
