The actress has begun assembling staff, including two veterans of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's election team, NY1 said.

Unlike Oprah, it looks like another celebrity might actually run for office: Cynthia Nixon-best known as Miranda in Sex and the City-is exploring the possibility of throwing her hat in the NY governor's race.

"Many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously, she will continue to explore it", Nixon's publicist, Rebecca Capellan, said in a statement.

"If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public", she added", according to The New York Times.

Auto fire 'was attack on female police officer'
Forensic officers have found no evidence of a booby trap bomb, and now suspect a mechanical malfunction of some kind. There were fears the incident was terrorist related after police sent the Army bomb experts to the scene.

Cynthia Nixon has not yet decided if she will run in the Democratic primary against Gov. Cuomo.

Asked during an unrelated phone press conference about Nixon possibly challenging him, Cuomo said that "people who may or may not run for governor on both sides of the aisle, that's up to them".

Nixon told NBC's "Today" show in August that there were "a lot of people who would like me to run".

That said, she is constantly talking about political affairs and has openly opposed NY state's current governor Andrew Cuomo on many of his political stances. De Blasio is one of Cynthia's good friends. Her wife, Christine Marinoni, is a public school education activist who works for his administration as a special adviser for community partnerships in the Department of Education.

Geneva: Mercedes-AMG GT family grows
While there are AMG Line versions of the CLS , if it's the real thing you want, it will have to be the AMG GT Coupe . Under the hood, the base variant AMG GT 53 uses a 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain as the other new 53-series models.

"In this business you can't let these things bother you, otherwise you won't last long", Cuomo said.

The Emmy Award victor isn't the only actress who could be seeking political office in NY this year.

Nixon, in an interview a year ago on NBC's "Today" show, blamed Cuomo for what she called the widening gap between the richest and poorest schools.

"Normally name recognition is relevant when it has some connection to the endeavor", said the Governor, who said if it's just about name recognition, he hopes Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie or Billy Joel do not get into the race.
