Cynthia Nixon announces her run for governor of NY

The primary election will be held September 13.

In her campaign video, Nixon talks about her love for the state of NY.

She took to Twitter to tell her followers she loved NY, along with a video that was oh-so campaign-perfect.

The Cuomo campaign did not respond on the record to Nixon's announcement, but instead released a written statement: "It's great that we live in a democracy where anyone can run for office".

"Our endorsement in the Governor's race will be determined by our state committee, which is comprised of 232 labor, community and grassroots activists from across New York State", said New York WFP director Bill Lipton.

We're wishing Cynthia the best of luck as she embarks on this new chapter of her professional life.

And Former television comic Al Franken - for whom Nixon once campaigned - was Democratic senator of Minnesota from 2009 until early this year, when he was forced to step down over sexual misconduct allegations. "This time the boxing gloves he usually puts on can not be laced up, " said Sheinkopf, who is not working for Cuomo or Nixon.

The Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winner was among the star-studded cast of actors, entertainers and activists who came together for "the People's State of the Union" in January, an alternative event to President Donald Trump's first State of the Union speech. "That's called elections and that's fine".

Katy has her own response - "I love her... as a songwriter, as well", she says, before flashing a grin of her own. Katy Perry didn't miss a beat, although her tongue got a little tied as she talked.

Nixon has also traveled to Albany to push for same-sex marriage - which Cuomo successfully convinced the Legislature to approve in 2011. "How did we let this happen?" she says. "And I think that No. 1 is education".

"Cynthia hasn't been bought and paid for by special interests and won't be accepting any corporate contributions in this campaign", the linked donation website reads.

Nixon noted NY is her home and that she has not lived anywhere else.

After weeks of hinting that she would seek the Democratic nomination for governor of New York, Cynthia Nixon has made it official.

Nixon picked up 19%, according to the poll.

"A poll is a snapshot in time, and today the picture has changed", Siena pollster Steve Greenberg said Monday. Teachout is listed as Nixon's campaign treasurer.

"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 love NY, I've never wanted to live anywhere else, but something has to change".
