Cynthia Nixon, who is best known for her role as the "tough as nails" lawyer Miranda Hobbs on the hit HBO show Sex and the City, has grabbed the headlines as she announced her intention to run for governor of NY.
The "Sex and the City" star's newly launched campaign made its first upstate stop outside Albany Wednesday in rural Hoosick Falls, where she met with environmental activists and residents of Hoosick Falls, near the Vermont border. Dan Davenport, another attendee, described Nixon as "very exuberant" about the issue. She quickly noted that she and the cast still loved all the clothes, but how the film wrapped everything up was not ideal. Other than this general promise, she has not provided any details regarding how she would approach legalization.
When it comes to the Big Apple, Nixon said the gun laws could be tougher and that she supports making pot legal. "There's such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state".More news: Woman playing with guns shoots man while on Facebook Live
"If we don't like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up", Nixon said.
Actress Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic nomination, has come out in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana. 'I believe so much in NY and I believe that we're a real progressive bastion, and I have to say, the election of Donald Trump was a real wake-up call'.
"I'm running as a New Yorker, I'm running as a public school parent".
Her comment came after she mentioned that 'an incredible African American woman:' - Andrea Stewart-Cousins - wasn't included in weeks of closed-door talks that led to last Sunday's passage of the budget. I thought wow; that's not really what you love about the show. "If we are going to say black lives matter, we have to mean it".More news: FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Severe storms possible Wednesday
So, if you did find yourself cheering Carrie's closet, just know that Cynthia Nixon is far from impressed with you.
"They are the cornerstone, they are the backbone of the Democratic Party and we need to let them lead".
Williams then asked a pointed question that perhaps underscored Nixon's decision to appear on the former shock jock's show in the first place: "How can black women help you become governor?"More news: Trump launches Twitter tirade and declares 'DACA is dead'
