"Sex & The City" Actress Announces Bid for Governor of NY

  • Cynthia Nixon

"I was given chances I just don't see for most of New York's kids today", she said.

Nixon made her announcement in a video that shows her with her wife and children in her home, and on the streets of NY, taking her child to school and riding the subway.

"I love NY".

She goes on to say that New York's leaders are letting down the city's residents, pointing out problems with healthcare and the NY subway line. The show later led to two feature films.

Nixon's announcement came towards the end of Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo's second term in office.

Turkey declares full control of Kurdish stronghold Afrin in northern Syria
Ankara said the demand did not apply to Afrin , but its operation has faced criticism in the West. Turkey also announced plans to push Kurdish forces from Manbij, another city near the border.

Teachout, who was listed as Nixon's campaign treasurer, said she will be helping Nixon's run, saying she has been impressed with Nixon.

"I'm Cynthia Nixon, I'm a New Yorker, and together we can win this fight", she concluded.

Her message also echoes the outsider, progressive message other candidates have invoked this year. In 2010, Nixon signed a letter supporting a boycott of actors in Israel who said they would refuse to perform at a new theatre in the occupied West Bank.

Andrea Buera said at a news conference last week that she was the woman Songz had assaulted. Cuomo is running for his third term in NY with a $30 million war chest at his disposal for the campaign.

This would be Nixon's first bid at political office but she has always been an activist on political and social issues, particularly for LGBT issues and education issues. The video, which featured contrasting images of New York City and dilapidated areas of the state, had Nixon claiming that New York was the "most unequal state in the entire country". "I've never lived anywhere else".

The flamboyant Pietersen's attitude on the tour was criticised by some within the England camp. I hope you can respect my decision and my family's decision not to travel. "Time to move on!".

The Siena College Research Institute poll released Monday found Cuomo leading his two Republican opponents by about 2:1 while the two-term Democrat led Nixon 66 percent to 19 percent.

Former Syracuse mayor Stephanie Miner, a Democrat who has clashed with Cuomo, also has been considering entering the race.

Nixon added: "We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us".

Cuomo has been steadily moving left in advance of an expected primary by someone more liberal than him.
