Andrew Cuomo suggests Bill de Blasio role in Cynthia Nixon guv bid

Actor Cynthia Nixon laying groundwork in run for governor Is Cynthia Nixon Running For Governor Of New York? Reports Claims 'Sex & The City' Star Will Announce Soon
Freda Brock | 08 March, 2018, 02:17

The actress has begun assembling staff, including two veterans of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's election team, NY1 said.

Nixon, who appeared in the television series "Sex and the City", has been in talks with campaign operatives about challenging Cuomo for the Democratic nomination in September, multiple news outlets have reported.

"Many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously, she will continue to explore it", Cynthia's spokeswoman, Rebecca Sides Capellan, said.

"If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public", her publicist told The Times.

Cynthia Nixon has not yet decided if she will run in the Democratic primary against Gov. Cuomo.

If Nixon's possible bid for the seat succeeded, she would be the state's first gay, female governor. "In this business", Mr. Cuomo said with a laugh, "you can't let these things bother you".

"It was either the mayor of NY or Vladimir Putin", Cuomo said, chuckling. "Otherwise you won't last long".

Eagles trade with Seahawks for DE Michael Bennett
The only thing that has become quite clear is that the Eagles will look to move on from the veteran defensive end. That used to never bother the Seahawks; again, it may not bother them now as much as Bennett's cap figure does.

Speaking at a rally days after Trump was inaugurated, she said: "As LGBT people, we know how important coming out is, but I would argue that our coming out has never been more important than it is right now". De Blasio is one of Cynthia's good friends.

Rumors of Nixon's interest in running for office have swirled for a year.

Polls show he remains popular among the broader Democratic electorate in NY but he is deeply disliked by an impassioned cohort of liberal activists. Her wife, Christine Marinoni, is a public school education activist who works for his administration as a special adviser for community partnerships in the Department of Education.

While Nixon is an acclaimed actress, who holds an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony award, she has not held a political office position before.

Ms. Nixon was on the stage in January as Mr.de Blasio was sworn in for a second term.

Cuomo and de Blasio, both Democrats, have been politically estranged for years. Other candidates in the mix at the time were Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and former State Legislator Terry Gipson.
