Tony Award Winner Cynthia Nixon Announces Candidacy for Governor of New York

News   Tony Award Winner Cynthia Nixon Announces Candidacy for Governor of New York
 
The stage and screen veteran revealed her bid in a newly released campaign video.

Cynthia Nixon, a Tony winner for her performances in Rabbit Hole and last year’s The Little Foxes, officially announced her candidacy for the forthcoming New York governor’s race March 19, challenging Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary.

The Sex and the City Emmy winner also released a campaign video; take a look above.

Nixon’s official fundraising website positions her as “a lifelong New Yorker and progressive activist who is running for governor to fight for a better, more equal New York.”

Rumors of Nixon's campaign for governor began last year as the actor continued to voice her longstanding activism for education and the LGBT community. If elected, Nixon would become the first female governor of New York.

In addition to her two Tony-winning performances, Nixon has appeared on Broadway in such shows as The Real Thing (both the original 1984 production and 2014 revival), Wit, The Women, Indiscretions, Angels in America, and The Heidi Chronicles.
