Cynthia Nixon has considered a career in politics

During an April appearance on The View, Nixon slammed Cuomo, saying, "Basically, Gov. Cuomo is shortchanging the children of New York State".

Cynthia Nixon was asked about the rumor that she plans to run for Governor of NY, unseating current governor Andrew Cuomo.

"I can not!" she grinned, showing her interest. "I think for a variety of reasons but the one number is education".

Asked about rumors that she'll run for governor of NY, she says many people would like her to run, but says she can't make an announcement today.

Her name has been circulated as a potential Democratic primary challenger to governor Andrew Cuomo, who is seeking a third term in the office in the 2018 election.

"That gap now between our richest schools and our poorest schools is wider under Gov. Cuomo than it ever has been before, and that's got to stop", said Nixon, who campaigned for Mayor de Blasio in 2013. "He is not against public schools but he doesn't like to pay for them".

Iowa's Alcoholic Beverages Division has warned people about this, added that the copper and its alloys possess some bad qualities. Complete with a lime garnish, the drink serves up aesthetically pleasing photo-ops for outlets like Instagram .

A rep for the actress told ET Canada "No comment" when asked about her political aspirations.

Nixon's education advocacy began when her daughter was first entering the public school system - just as a recession caused New York City budget cuts.

Cuomo has argued the schools have experienced record funding during his tenure and that the state has more than met its legal obligation under an old court ruling that said the state had traditionally short-changed the funding of city schools.

Nixon has been active in local NY politics for years, particularly in the area of public education.

"I can not make that statement either", Nixon responded. The Tony victor stopped by this morning's TODAY to explain that the film is a coming-of-age story, a mystery and a cautionary tale about gentrification.
