Cynthia Nixon, who rose to fame as the wisened Miranda Hobbes in HBO’s Sex and the City, declared today she is running for governor of New York.
Nixon announced the news with a video on Twitter, calling New York her home for her entire life.
In her campaign video, Nixon spoke about inequality in New York, which she said is the greatest in the nation, as well as her advocacy for public school education. In 2014, she was put on the advisory board for the Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s Fund to Advance New York City; meanwhile, her wife, Christine Marinoni, has also worked as a special adviser with the city’s Department of Education.
Nixon will challenge incumbent governor Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary on Sept 13, 2018. The general election will be held on Nov. 6, 2018. Cuomo is seeking his third term as governor.
