Go, Miranda! Former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon announced this morning on Twitter she is running for governor in New York.
“I love New York. I’ve never lived anywhere else,” Nixon said in her announcement video. “But something has to change. … We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”
Nixon will be challenging Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in the Democratic primary this September.
Her announcement also called attention to allegations of corruption (one of Cuomo’s former top aides was just convicted on pay-to-play charges last week), neglect of the New York City subway system, which the governor has a big hand in, and shady deals with Republicans in Albany to give them control of the state Senate.
Watch the announcement video below.
