Cynthia Nixon: Cuomo ignored village water woes

Sex And The City star Cynthia Nixon has said she was "a little devastated" when fans applauded a scene in which Mr Big built a luxurious wardrobe for Carrie Bradshaw.

Cynthia Nixon is proud of her work on Sex and the City, but there was one scene in the movie's sequel that left a bad taste in her mouth. President Trump's astonishing election win also partly inspired her run.

Nixon went on to discuss what matters most to her now - not fashion or showing off her shoes for Williams' "shoe cam" - but her candidacy for governor of NY. "We have to get involved like never before, so that's what I'm doing". "It is tough", Nixon said.

In a video message on March 19, Nixon announced her primary challenge to Cuomo, having been an outspoken critic of his administration. "People talk a lot to me about being a celebrity entering this race". Cuomo defended his record during an interview aired on NY1 on Tuesday night, saying it is better than any other NY governor in modern history, which would include his father, Mario, who was governor from 1983-1994.

"There is so much we can do to really be an alternative to Donald Trump", she said. She also said that "if we are going to say black lives matter, we have to mean it".

Nixon's made recent headlines for her support to legalize marijuana, noting there is "such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state". "There's such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state".

When Williams asked if the death of Stephon Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old black man shot and killed by police in his grandmother's backyard in Sacramento, California, was a "black thing", Nixon responded, "Yes, I think it is". I thought wow; that's not really what you love about the show.

"They are the cornerstone, they are the backbone of the Democratic Party and we need to let them lead".

But Nixon added that black women will stop showing up for the Democratic Party "if the Democratic Party doesn't start showing up for them". The candidate emphasized that, if elected, she would be adamant about investing in infrastructure, tackling gun control and legalizing marijuana.
