Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon ‘considering a run’ for Governor of New York

05 Aug, 2017
Sex and the City’s Cynthia Nixon is reportedly considering a challenge to become Governor of New York.

The out actress is being floated as a potential Democratic challenger to incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo ahead of next year’s gubernatorial election.

Nixon, who starred on iconic New York-based TV show Sex and the City as Miranda Hobbes, has been a frequent critic of Cuomo during appearances on The View.

According to The Hill, Nixon is the latest celebrity hoping to take advantage of the Trump effect, using her stardom to help launch a political bid.

If the rumours are true, one thing is for sure: she would definitely not be the worst politician named Nixon in living memory.
