Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has officially announced that she is running for governor of New York. The actress announced her candidacy this afternoon and will be running as a Democrat.
In a video announcing her candidacy, Nixon cited income inequality, health care, mass incarceration, and New York City’s deteriorating subway system as some of the issues she will be focusing on. “I love New York. I’ve never wanted to live anywhere else. But something has to change. We want our government to work again,” she says in the video. She has also launched a campaign website, which can be viewed here.
