Gillibrand endorses Cuomo for NY governor over Cynthia Nixon

Christine Quinn bashes ‘unqualified lesbian’ Cynthia Nixon

I believe in her desire to be of service.

Former "Sex and the City" star is a passionate celebrity advocate.

"My point was never to say her sexual orientation - or anybodys - is a negative when they're running for office", said Quinn, who like Nixon is a lesbian.

.

- Christine Quinn (@chriscquinn) March 20, 2018Cynthia Nixon aggressively opposed my candidacy in NY despite my qualifications for the office and despite my strong progressive credentials. Nixon announced her candidacy Monday.

Cynthia Nixon is taking on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is a clear favorite to win his primary in September.

Before Nixon made her long-rumored announcement, Dershowitz wrote, "Cynthia Nixon may run for Gov of NY".

Reposting Cynthia Nixon's campaign video, he captioned the post, 'I cant think of anyone who's more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than @cynthiaenixon'.

Kristen Davis, who famously played Charlotte York-Goldenblatt opposite Cynthia Nixon in SATC, took to her social media to support her friend and ex-colleague. Quinn explained to the New York Post that back in 2013, Nixon chose to endorse current NYC mayor Bill De Blasio over her when she ran against him in the Democratic primary that year.

Quinn, 51, was the first lesbian to become Speaker and is still a notable political force, serving as Vice Chair of the New York State Democratic Committee.

She went on to blame Cuomo for helping Republicans take control of the state Senate with a backroom deal in 2011 while passing budgets and policies that have "starved" New York's cities and rural areas of funding and services. Kristin also said that she would support her to run for NY governor.

Quinn praised Nixon for having a "terrific and very successful" career as an actress. "Being an actress and celebrity doesn't make you qualified for public office". "This is a time to move away from celebrity and toward progressive leadership". I too want to scream every time I ride the MTA. "I would never, EVER, criticize someone due to their identity", Quinn tweeted Tuesday afternoon. You know that, and I know that, because we are on it every day unlike Governor Cuomo. "Participating in rallies is important", Quinn said.

That was the issue that unknown law professor Zephyr Teachout worked to pull 33 percent of the vote (the best on record in a primary against a sitting gov) in 2014, and it's even more relevant now. And that's why, until I see enough evidence that Cynthia Nixon can be an effective leader to change my mind, I'm not with her.
