Cynthia Nixon unlikely to get Bernie Sanders’ backing

Some New York progressive leaders hoping Bernie Sanders might help Cynthia Nixon in her Democratic primary campaign against Gov. Cuomo are likely to be disappointed.
A high-level Sanders source said Sunday that it’s “very unlikely” the Vermont senator will get involved.
One New York progressive leader had suggested that Sanders might “look at this race if it tightens, which I think it will, and see if he wants to get involved on behalf of his allies in the progressive movement.”
But the top Sanders source said the senator’s priority is to replace Republicans in the House and Senate, as well as in down-ballot races across the country.

“That’s really where his focus is going to be, on defeating the Republicans and beating back the far right agents of Trump,” the insider said.
Cuomo and Nixon both supported Hillary Clinton over Sanders in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.
