Actress Cynthia Nixon is reportedly considering campaigning to become the next Governor of NY.

Could Cynthia Nixon be the latest celebrity to throw her hat into the political arena?

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the "Sex and the City" star is considering a run against Cuomo, whose policies she has criticized before on The View.

Cynthia Nixon, the actress who played Miranda on Sex And The City, is said to be eyeing a run for governor of NY. Right: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo speaks during a press conference on February 15, 2017 in NYC. "He is not against public schools but he doesn't like to pay for them".

Cuomo "is a little more like Betsy DeVos than we like to think he is", she added.

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

Cuomo remains on the shortlist to challenge President Donald Trump, should he run for re-election in 2022. "These are policies we expect from Betsy DeVos, but from Andrew Cuomo?".

Billy Easton, the executive director for teachers' union coalition Alliance for Quality Education, has worked with Nixon extensively in the past and believes she would be a fine candidate for the governor's office. "Her candidacy has been floated before, but she shot it down in the past".

Other potential rivals for the 2018 Democratic primary are Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and former state legislator Terry Gipson.
