If you haven’t decided who you are voting for in NYC yet, and the opinion of a very politically active and very famous comedian matters to you, you might want to know who Amy Schumer plans to vote for.
Amy Schumer has publically declared that she’s changing her vote in this Thursday’s election. Although she previously had announced her support for Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon, even donating $10,000 to her campaign, today she posted on instagram that she just couldn’t go through with it.
Was it bagel gate? Did Amy Schumer pull out of backing Nixon because she put lox on a cinnamon raisin bagel freaking out bagel purists everywhere? If that’s the reason, she’s not admitting it.
Schumer posted on Instagram on Tuesday encouraging followers to vote, and announcing that she’s backing Cuomo. “Andrew isn’t my fav dude But he’s good gov,” she said in her less than resounding endorsement. She wrote that she wanted to vote for Nixon, but has decided “i don’t believe she would know what the heck to do.”
Schumer is also voting for Jumaane Williams for Lieutenant Governor and she’s voting for Zephyr Teachout for New York State Attorney General, saying she is the most qualified and will take on Trump.

Thursday we vote. Everyone! It’s not cute to not vote anymore. I’ll tell you who I’m voting for honestly For gov: cuomo Reason: Andrew isn’t my fav dude But he’s good gov. I wanted to vote Nixon, but sadly, i don’t believe she would know what the heck to do. She needs to be able to pressure the state legislature in stuff but I don’t believe she has enough connections upstate. But I love her and think if anyone is inclined voting Nixon is cool Attorney general: I’m voting @zephyrteachout She is the MOST qualified. And she will take on trump the best. I am also proudly voting for @jumaane.williams
