Sarah Jessica Parker Officially Endorses Cynthia Nixon for NY Governor


A message approved by Sarah Jessica Parker herself: SJP has taken to Instagram to officially endorse Cynthia Nixon for governor.

"This is a decision that has been a longtime coming", she said of her decision to challenge Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the state's Democratic primary in September.

This comes after Parker seemed unsure about Nixon's gubernatorial run on Wednesday.

All she had to say about the matter, in fact, was that: "Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls. I look forward to talking to her about her NY state gubernatorial bid", Parker said in a short statement to Page Six.

"As a lesbian who ran one of the most high profile races in the country, i know what that's like", she tweeted.

Calling Nixon "my sister on and off screen", Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw, told her former castmate that "you have my love, support and vote". "Running for Governor of our great state".

After a down year in 2017, Watson has returned with a vengeance, already twice winning on the PGA Tour this year. It didn't take almost that long for him to rediscover the spark that made him a two-time Masters champion .

But while Nixon hasn't been elected to office before, she does have a history of political activism, and she's running a very left-wing campaign.

Kristin Davis, who also starred on "Sex and the City", backed Nixon following her announcement.

Willie Garson (who played Stanford Blatch), Evan Handler (Harry Goldenblatt), and David Eigenberg (Steve Brady) also tweeted sentiments for Nixon.

Later, on Instagram, Parker made it clear that she supports her good friend.

"She never went for the fame", Field said. "She's an fantastic person, and she's been talking about the schools and the children and I wish we had more people like that who are interested in the government", she told The Cut.

Cuomo is fighting for $550 million in state funding for the New York City Housing Authority.
