Actress and political activist Cynthia Nixon has announced that she is running for Governor of New York.
The former co-star of “Sex and the City” will be challenging Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary. In her career, Nixon has won a Tony, a Grammy, and an Emmy.
“I’ve never lived anywhere else,” Nixon says in a twitter video announcing her campaign, “but something has to change. We want our government to work again, on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”
