'SATC' Star Cynthia Nixon Miranda's Running for NY Gov!

Scott Olson

Nixon's official fundraising website positions her as "a lifelong New Yorker and progressive activist who is running for governor to fight for a better, more equal NY".

After much speculation, actress Cynthia Nixon announced Monday she will run as a Democrat for the NY governor's seat, facing off against incumbent Andrew Cuomo. Nixon has openly disagreed with Cuomo's education policies in the past, and education reform is something she's incredibly passionate about, as she reiterated in her video. "I've never lived anywhere else".

"I cant think of anyone who's more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than @cynthiaenixon", he wrote. "How did we let this happen?"

"Unlike Governor Cuomo, Cynthia Nixon rides the subway every day", it says on Nixon's website.

The "Sex and the City" cast has been fractured in recent months after production on the planned third sequel in the franchise was indefinitely halted, reportedly due to Cattrall's production demands.

"I'm a proud public school graduate", she said, "and a prouder public school parent".

"Many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously, she will continue to explore it", Nixon spokeswoman Rebecca Sides Capellan said earlier in March.

Davis, meanwhile, has largely stayed out of the feud, but called the decision to scrap the sequel "deeply frustrating".

Cuomo, the son of legendary New York Gov. "I was given chances I just don't see for most of New York's kids today".

The internet has since erupted with people searching for everything about her, including how old she is and whether she's related to Richard Nixon.

Nixon did a little better upstate against Cuomo, trailing him 54 percent to 24 percent.

Her announcement video ends with her on the train as the announcer says "Next stop, Albany". He has $30.5 million in his campaign account, according to NY election records.

Andrew Cuomo has himself a challenger in New York's race for governor.

Zephyr Teachout won roughly 34% of the vote to Mr Cuomo's 62%.

Former television comic Al Franken - for whom Nixon once campaigned - also served as Democratic senator of Minnesota from 2009 to 2018, until he was forced to step down over sexual misconduct allegations.

Among registered Democrats, Cuomo was favored 66 percent to 19 percent over Nixon, the poll showed.
