N.Y. Gov. Cuomo Beats Cynthia Nixon in Democratic Primary

New York Gov.

Andrew Cuomo won big Thursday night.

He defeated activist and actress Cynthia Nixon in the Democratic primary race for governor.   The  Associated Press reports  Cuomo got over 65 percent of the vote.

His campaign spent more than $8 million in the final weeks leading up to the election.

While Nixon lost, her progressive ideology may have had a lasting impact on the governor.  The New York Times  reports Cuomo started to embrace more liberal policies after Nixon entered the race in March.  This win puts Cuomo one step closer to serving a third term.

He'll be running against Republican Marc Molinaro and independent Stephanie Miner in November.
