Cynthia Nixon Considers Running for New York Governor Against Andrew Cuomo

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

Reportedly, Nixon has talked to political strategists Bill Hyers and Rebecca Katz, two former advisors to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, about her chances of winning.

If Nixon were elected, not only would she be New York's first female governor, but also its first gay one.

Ms. Nixon's Instagram feed has showed her making visits in 2018 across NY, including in Montauk, Skaneateles and Binghamton. Cynthia has said in the past, publicly, that she would considering a run. She has two kids with former partner Danny Mozes and one with current wife Christine Marinoni, who works in the de Blasio administration.

Nixon has previously said "maybe" when asked if she's running.

"We need to come out not just as queer, but as people who know all too well what it feels like to be put in a box that says 'other, ' less than, ' 'easy target if you're looking for someone to bully, harass, discriminate against, demonise, beat up, even kill". "He was able to expose, and then exploit, in a sickening way how desperate working people are and how little the Democratic Party is paying attention to them, because no different than the Republican Party, it has been focused for too long, and too intently, on the big money interests that fund its campaigns".

Cuomo was asked on a conference call about the possibility of Mayor de Blasio being behind Nixon's potential run.

The Wall Street Journal originally reported that liberal groups are encouraging the star to run for office.

Cuomo has said he's interested in seeking a third term in office, but has not yet formally announced his intentions.

"You can't let these things bother you. Otherwise you won't last long".

Four years ago he was challenged by relative unknown Zephyr Teachout, who managed to win 34 percent of the primary vote.

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.
