'An educated, concerned, positive candidate, filled with empathy, not out for personal gain, who cares about SERVING, nor has spent life as a CAREER politician? We can pretty much ALL agree on this one...'
Ever since Sex and the City left our screens in 2004, we’ve missed the familiar faces of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.
Thankfully, one of these women is returning to the limelight, with Cynthia Nixon officially running as the next Governor of New York.
While it’s not the Sex and the City reunion we expected, Cynthia’s decision to run against Andrew Cuomo has prompted her former cast mates to reach out publicly to voice their support.
The first to make her support known was Kristin Davis, the Charlotte York to Cynthia’s Miranda Hobbes on the HBO series.
‘I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair chance and a good education,’ Kristin tweeted. ‘I know that she would be an excellent governor!’
She continued: 'I'm excited to support someone I have known for 20 years to be one of the most intelligent and caring people in my life!'
Evan Handler (Harry Goldenblatt) was right behind his onscreen wife Kristin, joking about joining Cynthia on the campaign, tweeting ‘Has a movement begun?’
Willie Garson is the latest SATC star to voice his support - oh Stanford Blatch!
Reposting Cynthia Nixon's campaign video, he captioned the post, ‘I cant think of anyone who's more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than @cynthiaenixon.’
He continued: ‘Please join her on this journey, together we can turn things around with candidates such as her. An educated, concerned, positive candidate, filled with empathy, not out for personal gain, who cares about SERVING, nor has spent life as a CAREER politician? We can pretty much ALL agree on this one...'
There had long been rumours that Cynthia was making preparations for the campaign, even supposedly roping well-respected figures Rebecca Katz and Bill Hyers into the project, and now the 51-year-old former actress has finally confirmed that the rumours are true, with the primary starting this September, running against New York’s current Democratic governor, Andrew Cuomo.
‘New York is my home; I’ve never lived anywhere else,’ Cynthia explained in a campaign video. ‘I was given chances I just don’t see for most of New York’s kids today.’
Team Miranda - we're just wondering if SJP and Kim Cattrall will follow suit.
