Common Cause/NY pushes for New York Gubernatorial Primary Debate

PRESS RELEASE


NEW YORK, N.Y. -- With less than five weeks before the New York State primary, Governor Cuomo has yet to agree to a debate with his opponent, Cynthia Nixon.

In response, Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause/NY, issued the following statement:

"It is unacceptable that Governor Cuomo has yet to agree to public debates with his primary opponent, Cynthia Nixon. Debating is an essential part of democracy that can't be replaced by 30 second television ads. Voters deserve to hear from candidates directly on issues that matter to them, and candidates must be able to defend their positions under scrutiny."
