    Sex and the City fans received some good news this month as former star Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) officially announced her plans to run for Governor of New York.

    Following the SATC feud between SJP and Kim Cattrall, we needed some good news from Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda – and it looks like Cynthia is the one to give it to us.

    While there won’t be a Sex and the City reunion any time soon, Cynthia will be returning to the limelight, running against Andrew Cuomo in the primaries later this year.

    And unsurprisingly, the whole SATC gang are behind her – although some waited a little longer than others to endorse their friend and co-star.

    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,’ tweeted Kristin. ‘I know that she would be an excellent governor! 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.’

    While the show’s male cast were also quick to show their support, the silence from SJP and Kim Cattrall was deafening, with fans accusing them of not supporting their former cast mate.

    ‘Kim, what do you think of Cynthia running?!’ Victoria Batezel tweeted yesterday, prompting a response from Cattrall herself – but it wasn’t exactly an endorsement, with the actress tweeting, ‘I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices’.

    But what about SJP? Well, the 53-year-old was quizzed on the subject this week, finally breaking her silence on her former co-star’s decision to run for Governor.

    ‘Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls,’ SJP announced in a statement to Page Six. ‘I look forward to talking to her about her New York state gubernatorial bid.’

    And it wasn’t just the three women who have spoken out about Cynthia’s decision, with SATC‘s very own Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson) endorsing his former co-star.

    ‘I cant think of anyone who’s more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than @cynthiaenixon,’ tweeted Willie tweeted. ‘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…’
