Rumors that Sex in the City star, Cynthia Nixon is gearing up to run for the gubernatorial seat of New York have gained traction this week. If she is to run, her campaign will start with the Democratic primary in September.
According to various sources, the former television star has begun assembling a staff for her campaign, utilizing key advisors that helped bring Mayor De Blasio of New York City to victory in 2013. While she has not yet officially announced her plans, a spokesperson has said,
“Many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously, she will continue to explore it. If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public.”
Her potential candidacy and the name recognition that Nixon (or Miranda as Sex In The City fans know her) would pose a significant challenge to current incumbent Governor Cuomo.
