The New York Democratic gubernatorial primary -- in which the progressive, previously almost unknown, money-out-of-politics candidate, Zephyr Teachout, received over a one-third of the votes while raising less than $1 million to corporate-Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo's nearly $40 million war chest -- may have dashed Cuomo's future presidential aspirations.
