Cynthia Nixon, who brought Miranda Hobbs to life in the television show, "Sex and the City," has put in her bid for NY governor. Nixon is challenging NY Governor Andrew Cuomo in the state's Democratic primary.

Upon announcement of her candidacy for governor [VIDEO], Nixon received support via Twitter from former co-stars of the hit television show, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall. Davis tweeted her support stating, "I know that she would be an excellent governor," and that she is, "excited to support someone I have known for 20 years to be one of the most intelligent and caring people in my life!"

Kim Cattrall, who portrayed Samantha Jones on "SATC," also tweeted her support of Nixon stating, "I respect & support any former colleague's choice to make their own career choices."

However, up until today, former co-star Sarah Jessica Parker had declined to show any direct support of Nixon, stating through her spokesperson to New York Post, "I look forward to talking to her about her New York state gubernatorial bid."

Parker states support on Instagram

This morning, Parker voiced her support of Nixon via Instagram, captioning a photo of Nixon with the statement, "A mother.

An activist. An advocate. A fighter. A NY'er. A dear friend. Running for Governor of our great state. My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support, and vote."

Upon Nixon's announcement that she will be running for governor, supporter of Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo and former speaker of the New York City Council Christine Quinn called Nixon an "Unqualified Lesbian." Nixon has since adopted the phrase and is selling buttons with the phrase online for those wishing to support her campaign.

No.1 US trend on Twitter in minutes

Nixon's announcement of her bid for NY Governor became a quickly popular topic on social media, becoming the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter within 20 minutes and receiving over a million views of her video in less than a day. However, there is the question of whether or not another celebrity in a government position will be appetizing to people of New York, after the election of former host of The Apprentice, Donald Trump, as President.

Nixon has been an activist for education for years, and in her campaign video which she posted to Twitter, she also discusses closing the gap of wealth inequality in New York state, as well as refurbishing the current subway system in New York. In her video, she states, "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.”

Leveraging her own celebrity star power, alongside the recent vocalized support of Sarah Jessica Parker, Nixon's bid for governor has the ability to garner support from audiences who may have otherwise not been aware or interested in New York state politics.
