'Sex and the City' Star Cynthia Nixon Eyes NY Governor's Race

Cynthia Nixon has not yet decided if she will run in the Democratic primary against Gov. Cuomo

Nixon has reportedly began conversations with Democratic strategists Bill Hyers and Rebecca Katz, both former advisers to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Liberal activists who have been critical of Cuomo on education and other issues think an insurgent with greater name recognition could provide a stronger challenge, even though polls say Cuomo is still popular among Democratic voters statewide.

"Many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously, she will continue to explore it", Rebecca Capellan, Nixon's publicist, told the Times in a statement.

Cuomo, a rumored 2020 presidential contender, is seeking reelection for a third term, and would face Nixon in the party's September primary if she enters the race.

"In this business, you can't let these things bother you, " he said. When asked about those rumors back in August on the Today show, she laughed and said she had heard them too, before launching into what sounded like campaign rhetoric about the spending disparity in New York's public schools.

During a conference call with reporters about storm preparations, the governor was asked if he thinks Mayor de Blasio is behind Nixon's possible run for governor.

Polls show he remains popular among the broader Democratic electorate in NY but he is deeply disliked by an impassioned cohort of liberal activists.

Nixon, an Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award-winner most famous for her role as Miranda Hobbes, has long opposed Cuomo's policies, and has been especially vocal over the past year.

The 51-year-old actress is also an outspoken critic of President Trump.

A source who spoke to a Nixon confidante said he was told "we're nowhere near making a decision". He won 62 percent of the vote against Zephyr's 34 percent of vote. Ms. Nixon was a regular presence on the campaign trail for Mr.de Blasio in 2013, and Ms. Nixon's wife, Christine Marinoni, works in the de Blasio administration.

De Blasio's office didn't immediately comment.

On Tuesday, Cuomo sounded unmoved by Nixon's potential candidacy.
