Until quite recently, Cynthia Nixon was best known as the spiky red-headed companion of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. The New York Times reported that the Cuomo administration offered incentives for the contractor to finish the job before the primary, and Cuomo's insistence that the state does not control the Tappan Zee contrasts with his self-presentation as an effective and engaged manager.
Nixon, meanwhile, is hoping several recent missteps by Cuomo and his campaign come back to bite him.
Cuomo rallied candidates and hundreds of other Democrats at an event inside Teamsters Local 456 union hall in Elmsford one day before the primary.
Still, Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf said Mr. Cuomo was given a gift when Ms. Nixon ran too far to the left.
One of those candidates is Jumaane Williams, a member of the New York City Council who is challenging Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul from the left.
She added that she thinks Cuomo knew about the mailer despite his denials.

He then shot both of them before turning the gun on someone who rushed to the scene, police said. When he arrived at the residence, the suspect fatally shot two more men, the sheriff said.
Mr. Cuomo held a massive 41-point lead over Ms. Nixon in a Siena College poll released this week.
On Sunday, Cynthia Nixon became the latest aspiring office-holder to briefly lose her mind while attempting to eat on the campaign trail, when she ordered-in public and on purpose-a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox from Zabar's on the Upper West Side. After a slow start, she attracted money and endorsements - including a New York Times endorsement that is front and center in all of her advertisements.
"I would have never approved that mailer to go out had I seen it in its totality", he said. "I would love people's support, but whoever you vote for, it's important that you vote", said Cuomo. "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said.

The flier was then approved by Larry Schwartz, another campaign volunteer who was formerly Cuomo's top lieutenant.
Earlier this campaign season, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley both upset long-serving Democratic incumbent congressmen in nominating races in NY and MA, promising more vigorous liberal policies and highlighting their opposition to Republican President Donald Trump. "It might be closer than he prefers, or the polls could be right for a change, but usually when they have spreads this big, things collapse down", Cunningham said.
