Gubernatorial Election, NY Democratic Party primary results reported by NYT, interactive map.

Cynthia did not win. However, Cynthia's message of party reform did unexpectedly earn the endorsement of several county caucuses beyond NYC but within Albany spheres of "influence." Albany County is the seat of the state's capitol.

In any case, registered Democratic Party voter turn-out was ridiculously low --OR-- voter suppression was ridiculously efficient, that much is obvious.

Whatever. To judge from sample returns, she is a shoe-in to succeed WHAT'S HIS NAME? for the general election. Totally hoovered NYC (including Staten Island?!) and, AND, Lawn Guyland.

A lot of comment I read suggested that Nixon may not have won, but her profile drove support for the anti-IDC candidates. So she took one for the team and is being praised widely
