Cynthia Nixon wins Working Families Party support against Andrew Cuomo

Model Released

While it is no big secret that the "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon is running for governor of NY.

The New York Working Families Party voted to endorse Nixon with more than 91% of the vote.

As governor, Cynthia would fight for a progressive agenda in NY by supporting policies to provide health care for all, legalize marijuana, and take corporate money out of politics.

The small but influential Working Families Party endorsed Cuomo in 2010 and 2014.

Although Nixon's campaign has been seen as a long shot, obtaining one of the most sought-after endorsements might make her a more serious challenger to the two-time governor.

"The last eight years under Andrew Cuomo have been an exercise in living with disappointment, dysfunction, and dishonesty", said Nixon.

New Yorkers won't have any problem lighting up if Miranda gets her way.

Cuomo has held a large lead against Nixon in recent polls.

Just before Cuomo dropped out, two major remaining unions in the party announced that they were withdrawing from the working Families Party, and other union leaders released stinging rebukes, calling the WFP "phony lifestyle progressives", and saying the party was a "cynical ploy" to use the unions to "drive a radical agenda".

The Working Families Party said it was pleased to show independence from Cuomo, the Democratic Party's flagbearer.

Nixon, the Sex and the City star, declined to commit to run her campaign through November should she lose the Democratic primary. "We can build a movement that can win, but only if we all come together".
