Cynthia Nixon Mulls Bid For New York Governor

The Hill reports:

Actress Cynthia Nixon is being floated as a possible primary challenger to Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) in 2018. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the “Sex & The City” star is considering a run against Cuomo, whose policies she has criticized before on The View.

“Basically, Gov. Cuomo is shortchanging the children of New York State,” Nixon said on The View in April. “He is not against public schools but he doesn’t like to pay for them.” Nixon argued that Cuomo “is a little more like Betsy DeVos than we like to think he is.”

Nixon is an Emmy, Grammy, and two-time Tony Award winner, most recently this year for her lead role in The Little Foxes. She married her longtime partner Christine Marinoni in 2012 and has regularly appeared at often-impromptu LGBT rallies and protests in New York City.
