Why is Cynthia Nixon running for Governor of New York?
I’m running for Governor because we want our state back. We want our government to work again. We’re tired of the corruption and dysfunction in Albany, and we’re tired of politicians who campaign as Democrats but govern like Republicans.
Snap. That’s kicking the limousine liberals where they double park.
Can Nixon win? New York magazine pains the pretty picture:
While victory is a long shot — the governor enjoys a $30 million war chest, support among unions and other factions, the incumbent bias in underattended primaries, and a 43-point lead in the first poll — it’s not out of the question.
The pollsters aren’t there yet, but they don’t always know what’s in people’s hearts and minds.
Actress Cynthia Nixon is a nuisance to Gov. Andrew Cuomo as he seeks a third term, but at this stage she is not running strong enough to make either the Democratic primary or general election challenge successful, said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“Nuisance” is a great word for politics today. Come November, I hope Americans will breathe a sigh of relief and find new, happier and more inspiring words.
By the way, Nixon is selling t-shirts with disarming slogans like “Unqualified Lesbian,” beating her critics to the slam.
Nixon is more than a little likable. She is strongly pro-cannabis, and pro-social and economic justice. With her mix of wry humor and common sense, and her Sex and the City star power, she may do more than disrupt—she may rule.
