New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon is ready to roast her opponent.

Nixon, speaking at the annual Legislative Correspondents Association dinner in Albany, New York, cracked jokes about herself and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday night. "He won’t come to any event that has less than $25,000 a plate," said Nixon, poking fun at the fact that Cuomo was a no-show that night and has never spoken at the LCA event. She also compared and contrasted Cuomo with President Trump, and urged the governor to "come out as a Republican."
