Cynthia Nixon might run for NY governor against Andrew Cuomo

Is Cynthia Nixon Running For Governor Of New York? Reports Claims 'Sex & The City' Star Will Announce Soon

Human Rights Campaign honors Cynthia Nixon with the HRC Visibility Award at the 2018 HRC Greater New York Gala on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018 in New York.

Nixon is expected to place two members New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's (D) first mayoral bid, Rebecca Katz and Bill Hyers, in high positions, NY1 News reported Tuesday.

Actress Cynthia Nixon is expected to announce that she's running for governor of NY in 2018 as a Democratic candidate!

NY1 statehouse reporter Zack Fink will have more on the story at noon on NY1.

Nixon has also been critical of Cuomo.

Just months before, while appearing on The View, she criticized Cuomo for, as she said, "shortchanging the children of NY".

Nixon, in an interview a year ago on NBC's "Today" show, blamed Cuomo for what she called the widening gap between the richest and poorest schools.

Polls show he remains popular among the broader Democratic electorate in NY but he is deeply disliked by an impassioned cohort of liberal activists.

"Many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously", Nixon publicist Rebecca Capellan said in a statement.

Nixon told NBC's "Today" show in August that there were "a lot of people who would like me to run".

Cuomo, a rumored 2020 presidential contender, is seeking reelection for a third term, and would face Nixon in the party's September primary if she enters the race.

"If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public", she added", according to The New York Times.

Ms. Nixon, a spokeswoman for the union-backed Alliance for Quality Education for years, joined Twitter in December and has quickly amassed 25,000 followers while sending only 41 tweets, majority about politics.

"You can't let these things bother you".

Cynthia Nixon participates in the "We Stand United: New York Rally to Protect Shared Values". He won 62 percent of the vote against Zephyr's 34 percent of vote. Nixon's name recognition and celebrity status could mean she has a real shot at unseating the incumbent.
