There is nothing Twitter progressives love more than a quality pro-weed troll coming from an older politician.

As expected, New York's Working Families Party officially endorsed gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon on Saturday.

Many progressives and liberals are unsatisfied with Cuomo's reign as governor, who's seen as a more moderate Democrat, which is what spurred Nixon to run for the nomination.

Labor unions allied with Cuomo said Friday they would withdraw from the Working Families Party. It's possible that pressure from progressives and people like Nixon are convincing him to possibly evolve on the issue. Cuomo soon followed to say he too would not seek the party's nod.

She cited his efforts to move NY toward a $15 an hour minimum wage, adopt same-sex marriage, enact paid family leave and achieve a record $27 billion in funding for education.

"But in that divide the governor stands with the unions who have left the WFP and no longer feel it represents the interests of the middle- and working-class New Yorkers".

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro Have a 'Meet the Parents' Reunion
The show was hosted by comedian and former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney with Jack White as musical guest. That's right, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller reunited on SNL and honestly, it was everything.


A poll from mid-March shows Cuomo leading Nixon by 47 points in the primary in the deep-blue state.

The WFP's small pro-Cuomo faction tried and failed to both delay the nod for a month and keep the party's ballot line blank, but eventually the committee overwhelmingly voted 91.5 percent to back the "Sex and the City" star and activist.

"In a meeting earlier this week, the Governor was threatening people", Lipton said in a statement Friday.

Unions have been major contributors to grassroots groups like Citizen Action, Make the Road Action and New York Communities for Change, which all endorsed Nixon last week.

"I will win the Democratic primary", Nixon told reporters after the vote.
