The New York governor’s race between Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon is shaping up to be an interesting one. Cuomo is the incumbent, and seeking a third term as governor. A win could position him for a run at the White House in 2020, an accomplishment that eluded his father, Mario Cuomo, many times. While Mario was brash, outspoken and flamboyant, Andrew has been laid back and taken a centrist approach to governing. The Cuomo name has afforded him that. However, his centrist policies could haunt him as the Democrats could turn more left in the age of Trump.
Nixon believes the Democrats need to move more left, and she is exactly right. We have enough politicians standing up for Apple, Google and Morgan Stanley. We someone to stand up for the people. That is why the populist messages of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have resonated so well with the public in the recent past. However, according to Trump And The Global Economy (“Trump And The GE”), Nixon’s candidacy has drawbacks.
