Cynthia Nixon Considering a Run for Governor in NY

'Sex and the City' star considers primary challenge to NY Gov. Cuomo: report

Actress Cynthia Nixon is reportedly considering campaigning to become the next Governor of NY.

Nixon has not spoken publicly about her political aspirations.

NY governor Andrew Cuomo's second term will be up next year and Nixon is being touted as one of three candidates that could potentially defeat him.

Cuomo "is a little more like Betsy DeVos than we like to think he is", she added. Right: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo speaks during a press conference on February 15, 2017 in NYC.

The 51-year-old actress has been heavily involved over the years in local and state education issues. "He is not against public schools but he doesn't like to pay for them".

That wasn't Nixon's first time comparing Cuomo to DeVos, President Trump's secretary of Education.

"He also wants to increase the number of privately-run charter schools in New York City by more than 50 percent. These are policies we expect from Betsy DeVos, but from Andrew Cuomo?". The Wall Street Journal reported analysts as saying that while Nixon's candidacy "would spark fanfare, it remains a long shot".

"It - ready candidate with a progressive personal qualities that will attract people", said Billy Easton, Director of the Alliance for quality education. Former state lawmaker Terry Gibson and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner have each expressed interest in the primary, indicating that there is a great appetite within the party to replace the state's executive.
