Cynthia Nixon takes aim at Cuomo in 1st campaign event Mar. 20 2018 3:52

- Former "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon went to Brownsville, Brooklyn, for her first event in her campaign for governor to build on a video she released over Twitter identifying her main issues: health care, ending mass incarceration, and fixing the subways.

After her speech, Nixon spoke with community members about their concerns and what they wanted from their governor.

Actress Cynthia Nixon (left) officially jumped into the race for governor of NY on Monday, setting off what promises to be a tumultuous six months as she challenges Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in this year's Democratic primary. "The real point I am trying to make is that qualifications matter and records matter".

While falling short of apologizing, she said it was not her intention to suggest "Nixon's identity has any bearing on her candidacy". "But... being an actress and celebrity doesn't make you qualified for public office".

But shortly after the comments became public, Quinn told the Daily News that's not what she meant.

Twitter also loved Blue's antics leading us to believe that the young girl deserves her own TV show. Blue also rocked a flashy gold headpiece, which she seemed pretty excited about.

"Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City", said Quinn.

But her campaign may test the appetite of New Yorkers for a celebrity leader in the age of United States President Donald Trump, a deeply unpopular figure in NY among Democrats.

However, Nixon is more than just an actress seeking office, she is a well-connected, longtime activist for progressive causes in NY and around the country.

"I'm running for governor because I love this state", said Nixon in her remarks at a local church.

"But she's never run an organization", she continues. "I know that she would be an excellent Governor!" wrote Davis, who memorably played the well-to-do Charlotte York Goldenblatt on the hit HBO series. Nixon would be the first woman elected to New York's highest office as well as its first [known] LGBTQ governor.

Israeli military says carried out Gaza operation against attack tunnel
Israelis fear the tunnels could be used to carry out attacks on communities or army posts near the border. Hamas claimed that the tunnel had been built for the goal of smuggling goods into Gaza.

Rebecca Katz, a political operative who worked on Bill de Blasio's 2013 campaign for mayor of NY, was traveling with Nixon and shared a photo of her getting off the stopped train.

Nixon, 51, responded to the criticism by saying being a lesbian is not the issue. It's time for an outsider.

"She's an accomplished actress, a supporter of political causes and that's a good thing".

She has blasted Mike Pence as the "poster boy for anti-LGBT rhetoric, legislation and conversion therapy", calling on LGBT people to reject his agenda.
