Jimmy Vielkind reports for Politico that Cynthia Nixon arrived at the state's Democratic convention May 23, even though she doubts she'll get the 25 percent of votes there to win a ballot spot in a primary against Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “I’m not a protest candidate,” Nixon told reporters. “I’m a viable candidate who is really running hard for the Democratic nomination, and that’s why I’m here, to say this is my party too, I’m not afraid and I’m here. You can’t shut me out.” Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is expected to endorse Cuomo at the convention. “Andrew Cuomo will get many endorsements,” Nixon said. “As the dynastic, two-term incumbent governor, that’s not surprising.” Read the full story at Politico.
