Cynthia Nixon Interview
Cynthia Nixon explains why she’s running for Governor of New York, why the Koch Brothers love Andrew Cuomo, and her place in the rise of progressive politics within the Democratic Party.
Governor Cuomo seemed spooked by your campaign from the get-go, but after Ocasio-Cortez’s win, his people were frantically calling reporters to spin it to mean anything but what it clearly meant: that the Left is on the upswing in New York, and that the Democratic establishment is in trouble. How do you see Ocasio-Cortez’s win, and what do you make of Cuomo’s response?
Andrew Cuomo is running scared. Alexandria’s win was an enormous red-letter day for us all, not just in New York State but across this country. People care about progressive politics. And it reinforced what we’ve been saying since I entered the campaign, that New York is a proudly progressive place.
It’s a two-to-one Democratic state. We have so many elected leaders, starting with Andrew Cuomo, who don’t reflect those progressive values. When you give people an alternative, someone who’s outside the establishment, who’s not accepting corporate donations and who wants to enact real change, New Yorkers will seize that opportunity.
In terms of the broader debate within the Democratic Party and American politics, things seem to be changing fast. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi was recently asked, after Ocasio-Cortez’s win, if she thought socialism was ascendent within the Democratic Party, and she of course said no. What did you make of her response and this whirlwind of left momentum we’re suddenly living with?
Nancy Pelosi is dead wrong — that is exactly what’s happening. Wealthy people and big corporations have always had an outsized influence on American and world politics, but at this moment, when you look at the agendas of corporations, and then you look at governmental policies, there is almost no daylight between them.
We’re at a time when progressives and Democrats have to speak about things that are the main headline for our people. But our elected leaders keep sidestepping. We have to talk about economic, racial, and gender inequality. We have to put forth plans to combat this inequality. It’s destroying our country and swallowing our democracy whole.
Why do so many people dislike Cuomo so much? And what sort of leadership do you propose as an alternative?
If you look at the lack of progressive change that’s happened here in the last seven and a half years, you can lay that directly at the doorstep of Andrew Cuomo.
There’s a reason that the Koch brothers gave him $87,000 when he ran in 2010: despite calling himself a Democrat, he has governed like a Republican and has handed over massive amounts of power to the Republican Party. He’s allowed the Republicans in the state senate to gerrymander their own districts. As soon as he entered office, he incentivized a group of Democratic state senators to vote in caucus with the Republicans, shoring up their majority.
We’ve had a Democratic majority in the state senate for more than five years, but the Republicans control that body because Andrew Cuomo has enabled and encouraged them to. It’s the reason that we have so little progressive change. It’s the reason we haven’t become a leader in renewable energy or in campaign finance reform. It’s the reason we haven’t passed the Reproductive Health Act, GENDA [Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act], the New York Dream Act, or the Liberty Act, which would protect our undocumented people from ICE.
It’s not just that he’s given them political power — his policies are purely Republican. Upon entering office, he eliminated the bank tax. He slashed taxes on corporations. He slashed taxes on everybody earning more than $300,000 a year. In seven budgets, he’s cumulatively cut $25 billion out of state revenue.
If he was a Republican, we would have voted him out of office a long time ago. But because he is a Democrat, the son of Mario Cuomo, and a genius at getting headlines rather than enacting change, New Yorkers have a false sense of security about how progressive our state really is because Andrew Cuomo keeps telling us so. Our campaign is saying, “Look at all these things that New Yorkers want that we could have had, but Andrew Cuomo hasn’t fought for them — and has actually empowered the other side to make sure we don’t get them.”
Since you announced your campaign, he’s tried to present himself as a very different politician to New York voters. According to a tally in the Nation, he’s moved left on marijuana, criminal justice, immigration, transit, and public housing.
And the environment. And on reconciling the IDC[Independent Democratic Conference], this group of Democratic state senators that he encouraged to join the Republicans. He’s been saying for seven and a half years that he had nothing to do with it and no control over it. I entered the race and two weeks later, he had a press conference with the head of the Senate Democrats and the IDC Democrats saying they were reconciled.
You’re not the first person to mount a left-wing challenge to Cuomo. How do you think that the political conditions have changed in New York since Zephyr Teachout challenged him four years ago?
What Zephyr Teachout did four years ago was enormously inspiring. It’s one of the things that encouraged me to run. She ran a terrific campaign and showed there was appetite for a progressive challenger. But it was very difficult for her to get on television, because people didn’t take her candidacy seriously.
They didn’t understand what a big part of the electorate she was going to capture. Certainly the election of Donald Trump is the game changer that’s happened since. It was a tremendous wake-up call. I’m fifty-two. Never in my lifetime have I seen such a hunger for progressive change, both for our people here on the ground and as a way of combating the Trump agenda nationally.
The good news is we have the ability to do it here in New York State because we’re such a progressive, Democratic bastion. But we haven’t. We’re going to miss this moment if we don’t have a governor who’s a progressive leader who will seize this moment and galvanize this appetite for change.
Cuomo is one of the most brazenly and cynically Machiavellian politicians who’s ever lived. There’s him shutting down the Moreland Commission, which was investigating corruption. There are the independent Democrats, which he used to prop up Republican control of the Senate. Then there are these fights that he constantly picks with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio simply because he thinks he can win them and enjoys winning them. Tell me about Cuomo’s personality and character, and how you think New Yorkers assess those things.
