ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York state political news, candidates are making their final push before Thursday's primary.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo is spending big in his battle with activist and former "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon, who is counting on grassroots support. Campaign filings show Cuomo spent more than $8 million in the final weeks before the primary, with much of the money going to advertisements.

Nixon has fewer financial resources and is focused on other ways to communicate with voters, including a recent swing through upstate and an appearance on "Late Night with Seth Myers."

Meanwhile, candidates are reminding voters that the primary will be held on a Thursday so as not to interfere with the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks or the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah.
