The shout-out even sparked a reaction from the former "Sex in the City" star.

Now the New York Times reports that the flier was drafted and approved by two men with close ties to Cuomo.

"With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can't take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who won't stand strong for our Jewish communities", the mailer sent Saturday to some 7,000 Jewish households, said.

"Our politics need to reflect our world + with women speaking up every day about and against mistreatment (often at the most systemic and deeply entrenched levels), fighting tirelessly for a seat at the table, Cynthia Nixon & the incredible success of this campaign so far has proven that women's voices need to be lifted up & represented at every level of government, now more than ever", Dunham added.

Democratic voters in NY will decide on Thursday whether Governor Andrew Cuomo deserves a third term or should be replaced by actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, a first-time candidate mounting a challenge from the left.

"New Yorkers & all NYCHA residents its time to get JUSTICE", Minaj tweeted. "I don't want any more corruption", he said. "But I love her and think if anyone is inclined voting Nixon is cool". "She was a fine actor, but not a great gubernatorial candidate", he said.

There are also multiple people hoping to get your support in primaries for attorney general, lieutenant governor, and several town ballot races as well. Leecia Eve, a former Cuomo aide, was in fourth.

Political observers say that turnout is an overriding factor, but if damaging stories continue to come out about Cuomo, whether concerning the bridge, the mailer or other issues, "it's likely to affect at the margins the spread", said Levenson.
