Nixon is challenging Cuomo in the Democratic gubernatorial primary. The issue is one of the biggest differences between herself and her Democratic opponent incumbent New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

As Nixon points out in her video on the subject, there are plenty of reasons to legalize marijuana, and there have already been successful campaigns all around the country to do just that on a sub-federal level. New York's Independence Party, which also has its own ballot line and endorsed Cuomo in 2010 and 2014, has already said they will back the governor again this year.

"I am running for governor because we need a governor who will stand with the people of NY".

Labor unions allied with Cuomo said Friday they would withdraw from the Working Families Party. Though technically a separate party, it tends to endorse and support progressive candidates from the major parties.

Cuomo's campaign spokeswoman Abbey Fashouer on Saturday said Cuomo's "record of progressive accomplishment is unmatched". But Cuomo said Friday he would not seek its backing this year.

"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". Despite the attention here campaign's received online, most polls show her trailing Cuomo by almost 50 points.

With the Working Families Party by our side, we will fight for equitable schools, good jobs, single-payer health care, subways that actually work, environmental justice, and an end to mass incarceration.

The vote was taken by more than 175 members of the party's state committee. "We can build a movement that can win, but only if we all come together".
