Cynthia Nixon, the left-leaning "Sex and the City" actress turned education activist, lost her dream of becoming New York governor Thursday, trounced in the Democratic Party primary by the two-term incumbent.Neither Cuomo nor Nixon made any immediate public comment after US media called the race.Lower down the ticket, the candidate Nixon endorsed as lieutenant governor, Jumaane Williams, a 42-year-old city councilman from Brooklyn, was narrowly ahead of incumbent Kathy Hochul in a race that was considered too close to call by US media.The public school advocate and LGBT activist campaigned hard for universal healthcare, rent controls and fixing the decrepit subway.Yet she headed into Thursday's vote trailing Cuomo in every single demographic group, the governor leading 63-22 percent, up from 60-29 percent in late July, according to the latest poll from Siena College.
