Cynthia Nixon slammed Governor Cuomo for the state's 'free college' tuition program.
Nixon, who's challenging Cuomo in the Democratic primary, called the Excelsior Scholarship program "fake."
She referenced a new study by the Center for an Urban Future, a think tank based in Manhattan.
It found that only three point two-percent of 633,543 undergraduates in New York benefited from the program while 68-percent of scholarship applicants were denied.
That's about 43,513 out of 63,599 applications.
