The 10th circle of hell

Voters in NY are casting their primary ballots for governor today - and it's between current Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his celebrity challenger, actress and activist Cynthia Nixon.
If voters think that Cuomo is going to win by a landslide, many of them might stay home, while inspiring a higher turnout among Nixon supporters rallied by a last-ditch effort to salvage her candidacy.
NY was holding primaries for governor and attorney general on Thursday, with polls set to close at 9:00 p.m.
Ms. Teachout, who is campaigning while eight months pregnant and ran against Mr. Cuomo in the 2014 governor's primary, has scored endorsements from independent Vermont Sen.

Cuomo prevailed despite a rocky last few days of the campaign, when he drew criticism for a mailer sent out linking Nixon to anti-Semitism, which his camp and the state Democratic party were forced to disavow. She would also be called to account for her idiosyncratic taste in bagels, and her support for a British tea shop frequented by her former co-star Sarah Jessica Parker. "I would love people's support, but whoever you vote for, it's important that you vote", said Cuomo. "And a NY progressive is not just a dreamer, but we are doers", Cuomo said at a campaign rally the night before the vote. The influx of truly left-wing state senators could shift NY dramatically to the left.
It's possible that no matter who wins, both Cuomo and Nixon could appear on the November ballot anyway, thanks to third-party nominations.
She called herself a democratic socialist and pointed to recent congressional primary victories by New York's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts' Ayanna Pressley as evidence that underdog challengers can defy the odds.
On Monday, Nixon addressed the controversy over her cinnamon raisin bagel with lox and capers, calling it her go-to food choice.
Then she sailed into controversy and free column inches of her own - for a bagel order that incensed nearly everyone - the incongruous lox, cream cheese, tomatoes and capers on a cinnamon and raisin bun. "I would say it's unlikely, but upsets happen in sports and politics", Dawidziak said.
But winning state-wide is tough, especially for a first-timer up against the well-oiled and well-funded machinery of a sitting governor.
"Cynthia Nixon did not have the money, didn't have the organization and never really caught on". "A lot of people would be surprised if she did pull it off", he told AFP.
She later accused him of sexism, saying: "He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief". Osaka revealed she was not quite coolness personified, though, saying: "I woke up and I was sweating".
