Cuomo vs. Nixon: Where they stand on the issuesPosted: Updated:
People across the Hudson Valley headed to the polls Thursday to cast their ballots in the state's primary elections.
One key race is the Democratic nomination for governor, pitting incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo against actress Cynthia Nixon.
Gov. Cuomo arrived at the Mount Kisco Presbyterian Church shortly after 11 a.m. to vote, accompanied by longtime girlfriend TV chef Sandra Lee and his daughter Cara.
After voting, the Mount Kisco resident once again touted his liberal accomplishments as governor, including free public college tuition and higher minimum wage.
Before Cuomo showed up to vote, supporters and groups opposed to natural gas as an energy source made their voices heard outside the church.
Cuomo's Democratic challenger, former "Sex and the City" actress and progressive champion Cynthia Nixon, was all smiles as she cast her ballot in New York City.
Even though some polls show Nixon as much as 41 points behind Cuomo, Nixon says she believes she has the momentum.
