'Sex and the City' star Nixon to challenge Andrew Cuomo

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo seen here on Feb

The gubernatorial primary is September 13.

After Cynthia Nixon announced that she's throwing her hat into the ring in the NY governor's race, Twitter celebrated (and bemoaned) the news.

According to The New York Times, Cuomo's name was mentioned 163 times during Joseph Percoco's eight-week federal trial. Just ask Sex and the City alum Cynthia Nixon.

The Siena poll of 772 registered NY voters was conducted between March 11-16 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Nixon has already faced criticism for that decision, with Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz accusing her of collaborating "with Israel haters" and calling on NY voters not to support her "bigotry".

Every player can play bad, but not to feel comfortable to play - "please Mister, take me from the pitch" - I felt that. The Portuguese did not hold back, and concluded that it was the youngster's worst performance in a United shirt.

And Former television comic Al Franken - for whom Nixon once campaigned - was Democratic senator of Minnesota from 2009 until early this year, when he was forced to step down over sexual misconduct allegations.

"I'm not nervous about whoever runs", he told reporters in Manhattan.

Nixon, who has ties in the left wing of the Democratic Party as well as to the small but influential Working Families Party, has been mulling a run against Cuomo for several months. "That's called elections and that's fine".

Nixon herself has been politically involved for 17 years, fighting for education funding, marriage equality, women's reproductive rights and more.

But polling shows that Cuomo has a significant lead over Nixon.

They also launched a murder investigation into the death of Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian businessman who was found dead in his London home on Tuesday.

She's a hard-working activist who's more than her famous characters, supporters like Rosie O'Donnell said.

An accompanying video, which shows Ms Nixon at home with her wife, Christine Marinoni, and their young son Max, also addresses income inequality. "I'm a proud public school graduate, and a prouder public school parent", she continued. "I think a lot of people are exhausted of the middle of the road or even conservative at times positions of the governor on many issues".

Nixon is challenging the incumbent, Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat who is seeking a third term. Per Nixon, not only is NY her "home", but she has realized that "something has to change".

The announcement sets up a contest over the soul of the state's Democratic Party that Cuomo controls. Teachout is listed as Nixon's campaign treasurer.

"I love New York", Nixon said in the video. 'I love NY, I never wanted to live anywhere else'. "But something has to change".

The lunch combo comes with four slices of pizza that adds up to about the size of a normal personal pizza and a 20 ounce drink. Little Caesars promised fans a free lunch if any No. 16 teams beat a No. 1 team on Thursday or Friday- and UMBC did just that.

Cuomo in January reported having $30.5 million in his campaign account.
