Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon in Syracuse Thursday said she would happily take the endorsement of the labor-aligned Working Families Party, telling reporters it would fit with her economic agenda as governor.

“I would love to get the Working Families Party endorsement,” she said. “I think any person who cares about working families and who cares about ending poverty would want that endorsement.”

Asked if she lost the Democratic primary to incumbent Andrew Cuomo would she continue on in the general election with the WFP’s support, Nixon shrugged as the question-and-answer session ended.

The WFP backed Cuomo during his bid for a second term in 2014, but the nomination was contested by Zephyr Teachout, a little-known Fordham Law School professor who would later challenge Cuomo in a primary.

At the time, Cuomo’s WFP candidacy was vouched for by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who the governor has been locked in a heated feud.

The party’s convention this year will be held May 19 in Harlem.

A WFP-backed Nixon in the general election would be a significant headwind for Cuomo, who has sought to court liberal votes, mostly recently with a push to re-unite Democrats in the state Senate. Polls have shown Cuomo continuing to enjoy steady support from self-identified liberal voters.

But a three-way race would provide a path to the Republican nominee for governor; the GOP has not won statewide in New York since 2002.

Nixon has been touring parts of upstate New York this week, appearing Wednesday in Hoosick Falls, a village struggling with a chemical water contamination, and today in Syracuse and Rochester. The settings have been small, roundtable-style discussions.

Nixon said she has appeal among upstate voters in spite of her celebrity. And she acknowledged that upstate counties were won by President Donald Trump in the 2016 election in part due to economic concerns.

“I think that there are people who may have voted for Donald Trump and they voted for him for a lot of reasons and one of those reasons was they wanted a change and they wanted an economic change,” she said. “I think Donald Trump was not very honest about that change that he was promising, but people see that divide economically between rich and poor.”
