TV actress Nixon in NY governor bid

Former 'Sex and the City' star Cynthia Nixon is running for governor of New York state. Nixon says she's a progressive alternative to incumbent Andrew Cuomo, who she labelled a "centrist" and political insider. In a campaign ad posted on Twitter, Nixon says "We want our government to work again " and described New York state as the most unequal state in the country. The openly-gay Nixon has called on Democrats nationwide to carve out a strong liberal identity instead of being merely the "anti-Trump party." But she has a steep hill to climb before September's Democratic primary.  A recent poll favoured Cuomo 66 percent to 19 percent over Nixon.
