Hoping to blow out Cynthia Nixon's political career like a candle in the wind, Elton John endorses Governor Cuomo for re-election.

The British rocker, who is not an American citizen and cannot vote in this year's election, cited Cuomo’s work in New York State to combat HIV and AIDS.

Since learning from NY1 earlier this month that the actor is poised to challenge him in a Democratic primary, Cuomo has shifted into high gear with an aggressive fundraising schedule and rolling out endorsements.

The local chapter of the National Organization for Women also announced its endorsement of Cuomo this week.
