ALBANY – The “Sex and the City” star challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary in the gubernatorial race is hitting the campaign trail.
Actress-turned-candidate Cynthia Nixon joined educators speaking out about school funding in Albany on Monday.
In her speech about inequities in education spending, Nixon called out the White House but also took swipes at the two-term governor’s state budget proposal. She also blasted Cuomo as a bully and faulted his effort to combat government corruption.
"In 2018 New Yorkers know that if we aren’t going to tolerate the gutting of our schools by Betsy DeVos or the reckless greed and corruption in the White House, we certainly are not going to tolerate it in our own backyard," Nixon said.
Nixon announced last week that she will challenge Cuomo in the September primary election.
