Cuomo touts 'wins' as Cynthia Nixon enters race


She officially announced her candidacy with the release of a video on her Twitter account.

He was also asked about her links to New York City Mayor bill deBlasio, who has had a long running feud with Cuomo, and whether deBlasio might be partly behind the effort. "I've never lived anywhere else", Nixon's voiceover begins in a campaign video to announce the run.

"We want our government to work again on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway", she says. We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty.

The contest will likely become one of the marquee Democratic primaries in the nation, as Nixon is widely expected to challenge Cuomo from the political left.

Cuomo, the son of legendary New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, is making his bid for a third term.

Nixon, an education activist who has previously spoken at political demonstrations in the city, had been teasing a potential run for governor over the last few months.

Her wife, Christine Marinoni, until recently worked for de Blasio.




Cynthia Nixon speaks onstage at The People's State Of The Union at Townhall on January 29, 2018 in New York City.

The move confirmed speculation that Nixon would challenge incumbent Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo. Nixon, whose character, Miranda, was an attorney, also appeared in the two SATC movies, of which there will be no more (and not just because she'll be busy running for office).

The election will take place on November 16. "There will be people who run". "New York is my home". There have been reports that Nixon, an actress best known for her role on HBO's "Sex and the City", is considering challenging Cuomo in the September primary. "That's called elections and that's fine". Meanwhile, Kristin Davis (aka SATC's Charlotte York Goldenblatt) already tweeted her support of Nixon.

In an opinion poll conducted by Siena College before the announcement, Mr Cuomo had a lead of 66% to 19% over Nixon.

They also favor Cuomo over state Sen.

Cuomo would defeat DeFrancisco and Molinaro by wide margins in New York City and its suburbs while finishing in a dead heat with the two Republicans in Upstate New York, the poll found.
