Cynthia Nixon, an actress best known for her work on "Sex in the City" and a public education advocate, announced her campaign for governor of New York Monday. She wants to run in a Democratic primary against incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Nixon made her announcement in a video that shows her with her wife and children in her home, and on the streets of New York, taking her child to school and riding the subway.
“New York is my home,” Nixon said in the video, saying she grew up with her mom, a single mother, in a fifth floor walkup.
