The New York Progressive Action Network, an activist group that grew out of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, recently endorsed Cynthia Nixon for governor and Jumaane Williams for lieutenant governor.
Nixon arrived to a warm reception, with members greeting her with applause at the hotel’s entrance and walking with her to the upstairs meeting. The Democratic Rural Conference was then holding its annual meeting in the same hotel, but Nixon did not visit or meet with any DRC attendees. Although Nixon was billed as having a “press conference” after the endorsement she left immediately after her speech without taking any press questions.
