ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York political news, Cynthia Nixon is backing her former Democratic primary foe Andrew Cuomo - without mentioning him by name.
The former "Sex and the City" star and political activist urged supporters to back candidates running on the Working Families Party "from top to bottom." Cuomo won the liberal third-party's nomination for governor after defeating Nixon in a bruising Democratic primary.
Republican challenger Marc Molinaro, meanwhile, interrupted his campaign schedule last week to help a man suffering an apparent stroke on a sidewalk in Poughkeepsie. The Dutchess County executive, a longtime volunteer firefighter, then directed traffic once paramedics arrived.
In other stories, supporters of legislation to authorize physician-assisted suicide held a Day of the Dead vigil for advocates who succumbed to terminal illness while pushing for the bill.
