UPDATE (May 23, 2018, 4:50 P.M.): Earlier this month during an appearance on WWHL, Cynthia's former SATC co-star, Ron Livingston, commented on her potential run for governor, showing his support for her in her bid for the position. However, it appears that her run has been halted. According to TMZ, current NY governor, Andrew Cuomo, received more than 95% of the delegate votes at Wednesday's Democratic convention, securing secure the party's nomination for a third term. However, Cynthia reportedly doesn't plan to give up with TMZ further reporting that she'll seek out signatures on a petition to get on the ballot.
UPDATE (March 26, 2018, 10:25 A.M.): Kim Cattrall, AKA Samantha Jones herself, who has been in quite the little back and forth with Sarah Jessica Parker as of late, issued what seemed to be her response to the news of Cynthia running for office after a fan asked her about it on Twitter. She wrote, "I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices." Cynthia saw the message and responded: "Hey, Kim! Thanks much. XOXO. " SJP has yet to weigh in on Cynthia's political aspirations. Cynthia first announced her plans to run for New York's governor on March 19, sharing on Twitter, "I love New York, and today I'm announcing my candidacy for governor."
The original story continues below.
In the past couple of months, rumors have been spreading that Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon was planning a run for governor of New York. As of March 19, the scuttlebutt has been confirmed. The actress will indeed run for the political post, and will challenge two-term incumbent governor Andrew M. Cuomo in the 2018 Democratic primary.
Though a first-time run for political office is a huge undertaking, Nixon won't be short on support from friends. In fact, the actress' former SATC costars already have her back.
Kristin Davis, who played "Charlotte" to Nixon's "Miranda," put in vote of confidence in a sweet Twitter post. "I know that she would be an excellent governor," Davis wrote.
Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch on the HBO show, also a few kind words for his former colleague. Sharing the video Nixon made to announce her run for governor, Garson wrote: "I cant think of anyone who's more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than [Cynthia Nixon.]"
It looks like Nixon has at least two votes in the bag!
