Cynthia Nixon assembling staff ahead of possible run for NY governor

Cynthia Nixon assembling staff ahead of possible run for NY governor

It's been reported that Sex and the City star and left wing activist Cynthia Nixon has been talking to consultants linked to New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio about a possible primary challenge to Cuomo in the governor's race this year.

Sources say Rebecca Katz and Bill Hyers, two veterans of Mayor Bill de Blasio's first campaign for mayor, are expected to play a major role.

Nixon, best known for playing Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City, has not been denying rumors that she will run.

A spokeswoman for Nixon told told Variety on Tuesday that she will "continue to explore" her options, citing the "many concerned New Yorkers" who have encouraged her to run.

"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. Cynthia Nixon is allegedly going to announce that she's running for governor of NY state against current governor Andrew Cuomo, according to local NY1.

He said, "We're hoping that either Stephanie or Cynthia Nixon run, but neither one has indicated to us that they are near a decision".

She recently took a swipe at "corporate Democrats" during her acceptance speech at the Human Right's Campaign's New York Gala, where she received a Visibility Award.

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

In August 2017, Nixon joined the Today show and declared, "There are a lot of people who would like me to run".

Nixon has also been critical of Cuomo.

"In this business you can't let these things bother you, otherwise you won't last long", Cuomo said.

He also downplayed questions about Nixon using consultants tied to de Blasio, his frequent political foe. He won 62 percent of the vote against Zephyr's 34 percent of vote.

Cuomo has already announced he will seek a third term in November and is a potential 2020 presidential candidate. Nixon's name recognition and celebrity status could mean she has a real shot at unseating the incumbent.
