Cynthia Nixon, an actress and liberal activist is reportedly considering a run for governor in New York. The Sex and the City star may challenge incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary.
In late January, Nixon tweeted, “Taking our country back is going to require all of us to step up and take action — including more women, people of color, queer people, and first-generation Americans running for office.”
Nixon has been engaged in discussions with two veteran Democratic political strategists regarding the matter, according to NY1 television. It is a sign that the actress is close to reaching a decision.
The two political strategists namely Bill Hyers and Rebecca Katz, previously served as top advisers to New York City Bill de Blasio.
In a statement, Nixon’s publicist Rebecca Capellan, said many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging the actress to run for office. She added that Nixon is still exploring the idea.
Furthermore, Capellan said Nixon will inform the public about her plans “if and when such a decision is made.”
