‘Sex and the City’ Star Running for New York Governor

Cynthia Nixon of hit TV show Sex and the City has announced she is running for Governor of New York. The 51-year-old actress and liberal activist announced her plans to challenge current governor Andrew Cuomo via a video posted on Twitter. If elected, she will be the first openly gay and first female governor of New York state.

Nixon, who played career-focused lawyer Miranda Hobbs from 1998-2004 on Sex and the City, has campaigned for a number of issues over the years, including sexual equality and education. In January she spoke out against President Trump, publicly stating that: “If we’ve learned anything during this first year of the Trump presidency, it’s that the cavalry isn’t coming to save us. We ourselves are the cavalry. In 2018, each one of us has to do whatever we can to take the government back. If we want change, we have to go out ourselves and seize it.”

The mother-of-three, who is married to fellow activist Christine Marinoni, outlined several of her campaign priorities in her announcement video, including targeting poverty and fixing public transport. “We are the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty”, she said. “We want our government to work again, on healthcare, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”

Costar Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte on Sex and the City, has already come out in support of Miranda.
