Cynthia Nixon has thrown her hat in the run for governor of New York via a campaign video posted on Twitter today. “New York is where I was raised and where I’m raising my kids,” she says in the video, focusing on schooling and wealth inequity. “I was given chances I just don’t see for most of New York’s kids today. Our leadership is letting us down. We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty.” Nixon stated.
It has been rumored for awhile about a gubernatorial run from Nixon, and all but confirmed when she began putting together a campaign staff. Well it's now official, and we just have to see if the former Sex and the City star has what it takes to go the distance.
