We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us.

Terry Gipson, a former state senator, has also said he will be running for governor.

Cynthia will challenge current Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in this year's Democratic primary.

"Cuomo has the support of more than 80 percent of Democrats against either, while two-thirds of Republicans would support either over Cuomo", Greenberg said. "Cynthia hasn't been bought and paid for by special interests and won't be accepting any corporate contributions in this campaign".

Overall, President Trump continues to perform poorly in his home state of NY.

"Host Al Roker tried to get her to admit she might be eyeing a run during that segment, but Nixon refused to comment, saying:" 'I can not'.

Her deliberations have appeared to prompt Cuomo to racket up his vast campaign apparatus, perhaps earlier than expected.

Cuomo is below the 50 percent level when registered voters statewide are asked if they want him re-elected this fall.

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.

Guess what - Nixon, 51, is doing just that in the state of NY.

A spokesman for the governor said afterward that Cuomo was just trying to have a bit of fun, and was not linking Nixon to the Russian leader.

Teachout, who was listed as Nixon's campaign treasurer, said she will be helping Nixon's run, saying she has been impressed with Nixon.

The video, which shows Nixon, 51, at home with her wife, Christine Marinoni, and their young son Max, also addresses income inequality. John DeFrancisco, of Syracuse, 57 percent to 28 percent, according to the poll. "Cuomo is very strong among Democrats right now".

Considered a potential Democratic presidential candidate for 2020, Cuomo is shored up by a bevvy of powerful supporters, but it remains unclear whether he will be badly damaged by the recent conviction of a close friend and aide for bribery.

Cynthia Nixon speaks onstage at The People's State Of The Union at Townhall on January 29, 2018 in New York City. "When I grew up here, it was just my mom and me in a fifth-floor walk-up.We are now the most unequal state in the entire country with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty", the actress turned activist says in the clip.
