TANNED, RESTED, AND READY: Cynthia Nixon announces bid for NY governor.
“Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon on Monday announced that she would stage a primary campaign against Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“I love New York. I’ve never lived anywhere else,” Nixon said in a video statement, which shows her starting her day at home with her wife, Christine, and son Charlie, and walking her son Max to school.
“But something has to change. We want our government to work again, on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”
Nixon’s candidacy gives those on the left an alternative to the more moderate incumbent.
As they say in both Hollywood and celebrity politics, pass the popcorn.
