Sarah Jessica Parker formally endorses former co-star Cynthia Nixon’s run for governor


In an Instagram post Thursday morning, Sarah Jessica Parker announced that longtime Sex and the City co-star Cynthia Nixon has her vote in the race for governor of New York.

Nixon announced her candidacy earlier this month, with a relatable video that highlighted public schools, underserved communities, and public transportation as some of her primary focuses. While the actor is definitely most recognizable for her role as Miranda on the iconic HBO series, she has also been a vocal advocate for LGBTQ rights, education, and women’s health over the years.

There had been some light media speculation as to whether or not Parker would actually endorse her one-time co-star, but she squashed those rumblings outright with a glowing endorsement on Instagram.

“My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support and vote,” Parker wrote.

Carrie and Miranda would be proud.
