'Sex and the City' Star Cynthia Nixon Eyes NY Governor's Race

'Sex and the City' Star Cynthia Nixon Eyes NY Governor's Race

NY1 has learned that Nixon has begun the process of assembling staff to lay the groundwork for a competitive campaign.

You probably know Cynthia Nixon from her time as Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City, but you might soon know her as the governor of NY.

"If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public", her publicist told The Times. Cynthia Nixon is allegedly going to announce that she's running for governor of NY state against current governor Andrew Cuomo, according to local NY1.

Asked during an unrelated phone press conference about Nixon possibly challenging him, Cuomo said that "people who may or may not run for governor on both sides of the aisle, that's up to them". She's spoken out frequently about NY state and city issues, praising Mayor de Blasio.

Speaking at a rally days after Trump was inaugurated, she said: "As LGBT people, we know how important coming out is, but I would argue that our coming out has never been more important than it is right now".

He also downplayed questions about Nixon using consultants tied to de Blasio, his frequent political foe.




For instance, while accepting a Visibility Award at the Human Rights Campaign's New York Gala, Nixon chose to give a speech about wealth inequality and "corporate Democrats".

Nixon has previously said "maybe" when asked if she's running.

"In this business you can't let these things bother you, otherwise you won't last long", Cuomo said. Her wife, Christine Marinoni, is a public school education activist who works for his administration as a special adviser for community partnerships in the Department of Education.

On Tuesday, Cuomo sounded unmoved by Nixon's potential candidacy. That compares to 62-30 percent in January's Siena poll.

She recently took a swipe at "corporate Democrats" during her acceptance speech at the Human Right's Campaign's New York Gala, where she received a Visibility Award. Former Syracuse mayor Stephanie Miner is considering running, and former Hudson Valley Sen.
