watery denial - his campaign pinned responsibility for the mailer on an anonymous "constituency outreach" volunteer - it emerged on Wednesday that the mailer was drafted by Cuomo's former special assistant David Lobl, now volunteering with his re-election campaign, and approved by Larry Schwartz, the governor's former secretary.

Making a pit stop at the Upper West Side eatery on Sunday while on the campaign trail, Cynthia Nixon ordered a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox and capers.
A mailer from the state Democratic Party that suggested that Nixon is anti-Semitic also backfired for Cuomo.
The New York Times reported that a former Cuomo aide "crafted the mailer's language".
Cuomo has played up efforts to take on President Donald Trump and says Nixon isn't qualified to lead the nation's fourth largest state.
The Working Families Party, a progressive political party in NY that switched its allegiance in 2018 from Cuomo to Nixon, seemed resigned to a Nixon loss the night before the primary.
Nixon also sailed into controversy 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.
And in July, Mr. Cuomo was dragged into ugly headlines after the architect of his six-year-old plan to revitalize upstate NY - dubbed "Buffalo Billion" - was convicted in a bid-rigging scheme involving state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But Nixon tried to draw attention to a series of gaffes from the Cuomo campaign in recent weeks, such as when the governor said that "America was never that great" during an August rally and then quickly backtracked.
But winning state-wide is tough, especially for a first-timer up against the well-oiled and seriously well-funded machinery of a two-time governor running for his third term. "A lot of people would be surprised if she did pull it off".
