Cynthia Nixon gives concession speech after losing New York primary

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday (September 13) turned back an aggressive challenge from actress and activist Cynthia Nixon in the race for the Democratic nomination for November's general election.

The New York Times and Associated Press called the race for Cuomo, who held a two-to-one lead on Nixon after a bitter race that saw Cuomo spend about $18 million.

Nixon is best known for her role on HBO's "Sex and the City" and was seeking office for the first time.

She had trailed in polls by more than 30 points throughout the campaign.

At her campaign party in Brooklyn, supporters remained cautiously optimistic that her running mate, Jumaane Williams, might still pull off an upset victory in the lieutenant governor race, making for an unlikely ticket alongside Cuomo.

He was trailing current lieutenant governor Kathy Hochul by a few percentage points with counting ongoing.
