Sarah Jessica Parker Doesn't Exactly Endorse Cynthia Nixon For Governor

30 March 2018

"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker has endorsed co-star Cynthia Nixon in her run 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.

Parker's Instagram endorsement follows a statement to Page Six in which she stopped short of a full endorsement.

"Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls", she said through a spokeswoman. A week and a half ago, Nixon announced her long-rumored run for governor of NY, sparking dreams of a Miranda Hobbes-run administration and, more practically, endorsement from former costars like Kristin Davis as Nixon has made it clear she really does have political chops (or at the very least, ambitions), putting "racial and economic injustice" at the forefront of her campaign and showing support for movements like the March for Our Lives.

In an early report, first deputy governor Vladimir Chernov said officials found 13 bodies in the movie theater. The roof of the cinemas reportedly collapsed as the fire took hold and swept through the mall's upper floors.

But Parker's lukewarm words didn't quite indicate that.

Her post came one day after Page Six speculated Parker may not support Nixon in the race. "Running for Governor of our great state", she wrote. "I'm so proud of her and I know she will work tirelessly to create change for all who need representation".

She then shared a link to donate to Nixon's campaign. "And I just want to say tonight, that she was technically right".

Kim Cattral also backed Nixon - who played career-driven lawyer, Miranda Hobbes on the hit show - in a reserved tweet. She's talked about income inequality, the MTA, mass incarceration, health care, and more. "We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us".
