According to the New York Times, Cuomo has asked labor leaders to withhold funds from groups that endorse Nixon, who has declined corporate donations and is running on issues including marijuana legalization, universal healthcare, and racial justice. 

“To endorse Cynthia Nixon is a very, very brave thing to do,” Zephyr Teachout, who ran against Cuomo in 2014, told the Times of the WFP’s decision, which more than 90 percent of the progressive party’s representatives supported.

“The last eight years under Andrew Cuomo have been an exercise in living with disappointment and dysfunction and dishonesty,” Ms. Nixon told the Party on Saturday. “If we want change, it’s on us. We have to make it happen.”
