Cynthia Nixon, the actress and Democratic activist, got a boost in her bid to be the next governor of NY when leaders of the liberal Working Families Party endorsed her over the weekend.
The endorsement also means that Nixon will be on the November general election ballot even if she does not win the democratic nomination.
Since announcing her candidacy in March, Nixon has attacked Cuomo for his close ties to wealthy corporate donors and for allowing the state legislature to be controlled by Republicans and Democrats who caucus with them. In a recent video she posted, Nixon explained: "I believe it is time for NY to follow the lead of eight other states and D.C., and legalize recreational marijuana".
"The last eight years under Andrew Cuomo have been an exercise in living with disappointment and dysfunction and dishonesty", Ms. Nixon told the Party on Saturday.
As governor, Cynthia would fight for a progressive agenda in NY by supporting policies to provide health care for all, legalize marijuana, and take corporate money out of politics.
"But in that divide the governor stands with the unions who have left the WFP and no longer feel it represents the interests of the middle- and working-class New Yorkers". The issue is one of the biggest differences between herself and her Democratic opponent incumbent New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Nixon is probably best known for playing Miranda Hobbes on HBO's "Sex and the City".
"If by some fluke I do not, then I will confer with the Working Families Party, and we will sit down together, and we will hash it out".
