Cynthia Nixon Enters Race for New York Governor

The actress Cynthia Nixon officially jumped into the race for governor of New York on Monday, setting off what promises to be a tumultuous six months as she challenges Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in this year’s Democratic primary.

Ms. Nixon, 51, has never before run for elected office and has chosen a huge undertaking for her first bid: seeking to unseat a two-term incumbent (and son of a three-term governor) who is sitting atop more than $30 million in campaign cash.

The contest will likely become one of the marquee Democratic primaries in the nation, as Ms. Nixon is widely expected to challenge Mr. Cuomo from the political left. Her campaign immediately cast Mr. Cuomo as a “centrist and Albany insider,” and some of her initial rhetoric on inequality echoed Senator Bernie Sanders.

“We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty,” she said in a video posted on Twitter announcing her candidacy.

Splashed across the top of her website are more hints of her campaign’s coming focus. One of the five categories — along with “Meet Cynthia” and “Donate” — is a hashtag: #CuomosMTA, a term used often by critics of the governor for New York’s faltering subway system run by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Scenes of her riding the subways are also spliced in her opening ad.
The unfortunate consequence of Trump winning the presidency is that celebrities (very falsely) believe Trump won on his celebrity status and NOT on his business acumen...which is something the newer crop will never have...

There have been any number of celebrities that have ended up in politics long before Trump.

Schwarzenegger, Reagan, Eastwood, Ventura, Thompson to name a few.

If her platform isn't something the Democrats want, she won't make it out of the starting gate, regardless if it's a Bernie spin off.

Was she one of the whores on Sex and the City?

Not an accurate representation of a white person.
