The fact that Cynthia Nixon just self-corrected "jail" to "prison" in the middle of an attack line pleases me. She takes this shit seriously. #NYGovdebate
For those who don't know, jail typically refers to pre-trial and short-sentence institutions run locally, while prisons are run by the state or the feds for people serving longer sentences. Different institutions, different policy issues.
If you're serious about criminal justice reform as policy, the difference between jails and prisons are important. (And a few minutes after Nixon emphasized the distinction, Cuomo casually whiffed it.) #NYGovDebate

My verdict on the Cynthia Nixon vs Andrew Cuomo #NYGovDebate: Nixon kicked Cuomo’s ass. It wasn’t even close. If this was a 12-round fight, I’d struggle to give Cuomo a round.
Cuomo came across as condescending and dismissive, something that doesn’t make him look well on TV at all. You can tell his last debate was in 2006.
If I am a black Cuomo supporter, I’d seriously reconsider my support. I’ll write more about this tomorrow, but Cuomo did little Wednesday to justify the black support he has so far.

No longer a NYC resident but watching #nygovdebate tonight. Nixon out swinging at Cuomo, Cuomo out swinging at Trump. Presumably trying to get that #StillWithHer
Cuomo is such a hack.

I’m at Hofstra University covering the #NYGovdebate debate and see nothing but Andrew Cuomo supporters from various local unions at the entrance and his signs everywhere. No sight of Cynthia Nixon’s campaign literature anywhere. Hopefully, Nixon’s performance will fill the void.
I can’t speak for the rest of the state, but it’s hard to find any Cynthia Nixon campaign literature here in New York City. And Cuomo isn’t really campaigning hard because he thinks he has the nomination in the bag. (He’s leading by 30 points)
Nixon doesn’t have the cash to do serious voter outreach like Andrew Gillum or Stacey Abrams, for example. Both won their nominations due to attracting new voters. You need money to do that. Lots of it. Nixon never had it to do the kind of outreach she needed to do.
