Cynthia Nixon has the support of her former Sex and the City costars in her bid to run for governor of New York City. Kim Cattrall is the latest to give her blessing to the actress.
Cattrall took to her Twitter on Thursday to express her support to Nixon's candidacy. In a straightforward but meaningful post, the English-Canadian actress said that she respect's her costar's decision to run for politics.
"I support & respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices," Cattrall wrote in response to a fan who asked her to share her opinion on Nixon's vie for New York governor.
However, Cattrall's curt response had fans speculating whether she was being sincere or trying to shade Nixon. Some thought she was being "classy," while others suggested that she sounded a bit cold. Cattrall also did not call Nixon her friend and instead referred to her as a "colleague." Regardless, her response is open to different interpretations.
Cattrall's post comes after fellow Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis also took to social media to express her support for Nixon. She vouched for the actress and explained why she deserves to win governor of New York.
"I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education. I know that she would be an excellent Governor!" Davis wrote just a few minutes after Nixon announced her candidacy on her Twitter.
Nixon announced that she is running against current governor Andrew Cuomo. In her campaign video shared on YouTube and Twitter, the Emmy-winning actress talked about why she considers New York as her home.
She reminisces about her childhood and growing up in the city with her mother in one fifth-floor bedroom walkup. She tells viewers that she is proud to have graduated at a public school where she also sends her children. Nixon also talks about her plans if ever elected as governor of New York, promising to help fix health care and the broken subway as well as reducing mass incarceration.
"We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us ... It can't just be business as usual anymore. If we are gonna get at the root problem of inequity, we have to turn the system upside down ...This is a time to be visible, this is a time to fight," Nixon says.
