Sarah Jessica Parker endorses Cynthia Nixon in bid for NY governor

Adjust Comment Print

After Cynthia Nixon, better known as Miranda Hobbes, announced her candidacy for NY governor last week, previous NY mayoral candidate Christine Quinn-perhaps still pissed that Nixon endorsed Bill de Blasio over her in the 2013 Democratic Primary-called Nixon an "unqualified lesbian".

She briefly stated, "Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls". "Running for Governor of our great state". Tagging Nixon, Parker wrote, "A mother".

Parker, Nixon, Cattrall, and Davis starred as four single women and best friends in New York City on the HBO hit "Sex and the City" from 1998 to 2004 and its two feature film sequels.

Parker cleared it all up on Thursday morning with an Instagram post praising Nixon and officially checking the ballot box for her "sister on and off screen".

But Parker has come out and endorsed Nixon.

She added, "We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us".

Kim Cattrall, meanwhile, responded to a question on Twitter about Nixon's campaign by saying, "I support & respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices".

Nixon, a long time activist for a number of causes, will face off against incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo in the state gubernatorial race later this year. Cattrall, though, has been in a feud with Parker recently. But using her celebrity and Hollywood connections may backfire after we elected the inexperienced celebrity Donald Trump as President.

"We want our government to work again, on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway", Nixon said in a video she tweeted with her announcement last week.
