Picking who to vote for can be a difficult decision, and if you’re Amy Schumer, it can also be one that changes multiple times, up until the very moment you vote!
According to the New York Post, Schumer originally planned to vote Cynthia Nixon for governor in Thursday’s New York primary elections, donating $10,000 to her campaign.
But then! Two days before the election, Schumer went on Instagram to say she was actually voting for Andrew Cuomo, the current governor and Nixon’s rival. She wrote, “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.”

It should be noted that Schumer is distantly related to Sen. Chuck Schumer, who also endorsed Cuomo in the race.
But THEN!! On actual election day, she posted a photo on Instagram, saying that she did vote for Nixon, writing, “We voted. And we voted for @cynthiaenixon couldn’t help it. And for @zephyrteachout and @jumaane.williams voted with my heart 💜 thanks to the women who took their time to talk to me about it. When someone disagrees with you be patient and have a conversation. It’s most productive.”
Better luck next time, Cuomo.
