Nixon, who appeared in the television series "Sex and the City", has been in talks with campaign operatives about challenging Cuomo for the Democratic nomination in September, multiple news outlets have reported.

Unlike Oprah, it looks like another celebrity might actually run for office: Cynthia Nixon-best known as Miranda in Sex and the City-is exploring the possibility of throwing her hat in the NY governor's race.

"If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public", she added", according to The New York Times.

A few months earlier, she appeared on ABC's "The View", where she took Mr. Cuomo to task for "shortchanging the children of NY".

If elected, the former Sex and the City star would be the state's first-ever openly gay Governor, and the first woman to serve in the role.

"In this business, you can't let these things bother you, " he said.

Black Mirror Has Been Renewed For A Fifth Season
Considering the past concepts of the series were so far out and nearly unimaginable it's hard to say what season five will bring. Netflix has announced that they have renewed the anthology series, Black Mirror for season 5 with a special video wall teaser.

Ms. Nixon's Instagram feed has showed her making visits in 2018 across NY, including in Montauk, Skaneateles and Binghamton.

For instance, while accepting a Visibility Award at the Human Rights Campaign's New York Gala, Nixon chose to give a speech about wealth inequality and "corporate Democrats".

Nixon has been very vocal about the importance of women and people of color running for office.

"There are a lot of people who would like me to run for a variety of reasons", she said then. Cynthia sees New York City's subway system as one of Mr. Andrew's major political vulnerabilities.

De Blasio's office didn't immediately comment. Ms. Nixon was a regular presence on the campaign trail for Mr.de Blasio in 2013, and Ms. Nixon's wife, Christine Marinoni, works in the de Blasio administration. Other candidates in the mix at the time were Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and former State Legislator Terry Gipson.

Hyers and Katz, like Nixon herself, represent the more progressive wing of the Democratic faction, while Cuomo enjoys supports primarily from more moderate members of the party. That compares to 62-30 percent in January's Siena poll.
