  • Kim Cattrall just weighed in on Cynthia Nixon's decision to run for New York Governor

Nixon announced Monday she will try to unseat Cuomo, who has been governor of the state since 2011, in the upcoming state Democratic primary in September.

As for those who might conflate the character with the candidate, political strategists say Nixon nabbed the right role.

Yahoo Style reports that an "unqualified lesbian" tee was created after "Sex and the City" actress Cynthia Nixon announced her candidacy for New York State governor.

David Eigenberg, who portrayed Miranda's husband Steve on the show, is also choosing to sing her praises.

He then elaborated on the topic, speaking to The Cut. "She's incredibly smart and caring, diplomatic and courageous", he wrote on Twitter.

Nixon, meanwhile, has downplayed the suggestion that the demise of "Sex and the City 3" pushed her to run for governor. "Two of the most hard things when you're running against an incumbent is trying to get the press to pay any attention to you and being able to raise money", she said.

"We're also talking about a portion of the electorate, the Democratic primary voters, who tend to be very far to the left", he said. Do you think she stands a chance? But I don't know.

Looks as if Kim Cattrall may be shading yet another Sex and the City costar, as if Sarah Jessica Parker didn't get enough of it at the beginning of last month. Some in the LGBT community think he was late on some of its issues, noting NY was the seventh state to allow people of the same sex to legally marry, seven years after MA became the first and six years after CT became the second.

When you see a Tweet you love, tap the heart - it lets the person who wrote it know you shared the love. He also blamed the federal government and the City Hall for failing to meet its greater obligation to fund and manage the crumbling subsidized housing and the New York City subway system, which is run by the state Metropolitan Transportation under Cuomo's appointees.

"Here's the question nobody wants to ask", Cuomo said, "It's not about how much money we spend".

"I don't have a favorite", he said. "People are always surprised to see me around and about as if I am living in some cloud somewhere". "I missed that article. everybody can say what they want". Aren't you going somewhere? "I feel incredibly optimistic", she added.
