You heard that right! Everyone’s favourite overachiever, Miranda Hobbes, played by Cynthia Nixon, just entered the race to become the governor of New York City. The 51-year-old liberal activist has been planning this for a while, and even though she has never really held an elected position before, she doesn’t seem to be afraid or plan on stepping down.

Cynthia’ plans were made public on Monday when she decided to challenge the incumbent governor, on Twitter none the less. In a video that she also released on Monday, she said: “I love New York. I’ve never wanted to live anywhere else, but something has to change.” What followed were also her priorities for the campaign and the changes she wishes to bring about. She also said: “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.”
Since her declaration of candidacy, there has been an outpour of support for the Sex And The City actress. It has mostly been her normal approach and views on healthcare and education that has gotten the ball rolling. If she wins, she will make history for being the first female and first openly-gay governor to ever be elected to the state of New York.
The position of a governor wouldn’t be that farfetched considering she has already played a career-oriented lawyer from 1998-2004 on the iconic television show Sex and the City, which she also managed to bag an Emmy for. So can she actually win? That is something only time will tell! However, people of the Big Apple are hungry for change and this will definitely shake the tree!
We wish her the best and hope she goes ahead and smashes that glass ceiling, that has been prevalent for so long in so many walks of life, including politics.
