Cynthia Nixon takes campaign for NY governor to Albany

Cynthia Nixon takes campaign for NY governor to Albany

In an Instagram post Thursday morning, Sarah Jessica Parker announced that longtime Sex and the City co-star Cynthia Nixon has her vote in the race for governor of NY. Pressed by the New York Post on her position, the "Divorce" actress released a statement to the outlet Wednesday that sounded kind of lukewarm: "Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls. Running for governor of our great state", Parker wrote in the Thursday morning post to her four million followers. In fact, the ongoing feud about a potential third movie, Nixon's run for governor is going rather smoothly with her former castmates.

The Divorce star took to Instagram to announce the news, writing that Nixon has her "love, support and vote". While SJP's Carrie Bradshaw may've done ANYTHING for Miz Nixon's Miranda Hobbes on Sex & The City, it seems that the 53-year-old industry vet isn't all in when comes to her pal's gubernatorial campaign.

But Parker has come out and endorsed Nixon.

"I support and respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices", she tweeted.

Nixon last week announced she would oppose Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo in a September primary, prompting quick and enthusiastic reactions from "SATC" castmates Kristin Davis (Charlotte) and Willie Garson (Stanford Blatch). "I'm so proud of her and I know she will work tirelessly to create change for all who need representation". Of course, this won't be an easy race.

Her campaign says she will speak at noon Monday at a news conference on school funding inequities before meeting with parents of school children from around the state. She's talked about income inequality, the MTA, mass incarceration, health care, and more.
