"Sex & the City'"s Cynthia Nixon running for governor of NY"

The girls are back in town- at least Miranda Hobbes is...'cause she's running for Governor of New York

Cynthia Nixon, best known for playing Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City, announced to that she will run for governor of NY.

Nixon has been acting since she was 12 but really made a mark starring alongside Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Kim Cattrall in Sex and the City from 1998 to 2004.

"I love NY, and today I'm announcing my candidacy for governor", Nixon, 51, tweeted along with an official campaign video on Tuesday.

The video highlights her New York roots, showing her riding the subway and speaking at various rallies - while noting she grew up in a fifth-floor walk-up apartment in New York City.

In her inaugural campaign ad, Nixon focused on growing economic inequality, noting that NY is the most unequal state in the country. "Our leaders are letting us down", the 51-year-old revealed in the clip. "We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty".

Nixon is a public-school mother who has championed the need for more funding for education, said Billy Easton, executive director of the Alliance for Quality Education, a labor-backed group she has worked with. "I've never lived anywhere else". "We want our government to work again, on health care, mass incarceration and fixing our broken subway".

The move confirmed speculation that Nixon would challenge incumbent Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Federer matches best season start
Federer, No. 1 again at 36, owns 27 career Masters 1000 titles. 'I don't even remember what tournament I played first up and won. To top it all off, by finishing within the last four in the Californian desert, Federer matched his best start of the year.

Russian Federation will expel British diplomats in poisoning standoff
Britain says the Russian state is behind the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury. United Kingdom officials believe they were exposed to a nerve agent known as Novichok that was developed in Russian Federation .

"Two-thirds, 66 percent, of Democrats say they are with Cuomo, only 19 percent are with Nixon", said Greenberg.

Nixon's looming candidacy has unnerved some supporters of Cuomo. Asked by reporters this month why she might run against him, Cuomo joked that she was put up to it by his enemies.

In her campaign video, Nixon boards the notoriously very bad L train; on her new campaign site, she makes clear that the state of the MTA will be a major component of her message.

Her announcement video emphasizes her long ties to the city and that she is a graduate of its public schools.

With the lines between Hollywood and Washington permanently blurred, Cynthia Nixon is the latest celebrity to announce plans to run for office.

Greenberg, who spoke just before Nixon announced her candidacy, says the real campaigning has not yet begun, though, and when that happens, the numbers could change. 60 percent of voters, The New York Times noted, had no opinion of Nixon despite her time on a hit television series.

"I'm not nervous about whoever runs", he told reporters in Manhattan. The Stonewall in is a historic landmark for the city's gay community, and Nixon herself is a gay woman-she married her wife Christine Marinoni in 2012. In addition to the video, Nixon has set up a campaign fundraising page that echoes some of the language used by 2016 Democratic Party presidential contender Bernie Sanders who electrified the left before ultimately losing to Hillary Clinton. Cuomo is running for his third term in NY with a $30 million war chest at his disposal for the campaign.
