Cynthia Nixon Hosting Launch Party at Stonewall Inn

Cynthia Nixon Hosting Launch Party at Stonewall Inn

"I do not believe she has the qualifications or the record", Quinn concluded.

She tweeted about the event, jokingly referencing criticism she received from former City Council speaker Christine Quinn, who called her an "unqualified lesbian".

A day after officially announcing her New York State gubernatorial run, Cynthia Nixon delivered a fiery speech in front of nearly 100 local residents and reporters in Brownsville yesterday.

One New York Democrat isn't a fan of celebrity candidates. In one scene, a subway vehicle breezes by, rustling Nixon's famous red hair, before flashing to a shot of her onboard looking a little irked.

"Sex and the City" actress Cynthia Nixon's bid for governor is part of "the political silly season", Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Wednesday.

"That thing when you're headed to talk about fixing the subways and your train goes out of service". It's just that she'd also have to have experience. I think it's a sign of progress.

"I am thrilled to support her and I know that she cares deeply about the issues facing all of us".

That said, the same Siena poll asked about a primary match-up between Cuomo and Nixon - Democratic respondents said they'd vote for Cuomo 66-19.

"If it was today, I'd do it right now", he told AFP.

"The big issue is you're having a petty squabble with a fellow progressive when we should be coming together", he said.

With wife Christine Marinoni in the audience at the Bethesda Healing Center, Nixon said she was "honored" to join their ranks. She said that Nixon also will be able to make inroads with voters who oppose the Independent Democratic Conference, a breakaway group of eight Democrats in the state Senate who share power with Senate Republicans.

Cynthia Nixon, best known for playing the character Miranda on the television series Sex and the City, launched her campaign this week to unseat Andrew Cuomo with promises to fix New York's dilapidated subways and help struggling public schools. This is a time to stick our necks out, to remember where we came from.

"I've never lived anywhere else", Nixon says in the video.

Yet Cuomo is a hard man to beat.

"If Washington is a swamp, then Albany is a cesspool", said Nixon drawing parallels to Percoco, Cuomo and the governor's $31 million campaign war chest of which only.1 percent comes from small donors.

Still there is speculation he's unnerved by a celebrity run from the left. If successful, Nixon will become the first female and first openly gay NY governor. "The right approach to Nixon, sir, is to relax - heck, pour yourself a cosmo".
