Cynthis Nixon goes after Cuomo over MTA issues

More recently, she has been delving into issues of keen interest to New York City, the main blue stronghold in a state where suburban and rural towns upstate tend to run red.

"I'm surprised by this race". Apparently she is, too, because while headed to a meeting to discuss how the hell we can whip the MTA in shape, Nixon's train broke down. "I would never, EVER, criticize someone due to their identity", Quinn tweeted. She was immediately criticized by a Cuomo ally, who questioned Nixon's qualifications in a controversial remark.

Marinoni served as senior adviser for community partnerships in New York City, reporting directly to the city's Deputy Mayor Richard Buery, before she resigned earlier this month, presumably to help with her wife's campaign.

Since the election of Donald Trump, Nixon has become a leading celebrity activist in the anti-Trump "resistance" and spoke at the 2016 Women's March in New York City.

Nixon's entry into the race could split state progressives, who have felt burned by Cuomo's leadership in Albany and repeated clashes with de Blasio.

"Cynthia Nixon aggressively opposed my candidacy in NY, despite my qualifications for the office and despite my strong progressive credentials".

On a frigid Tuesday morning in Brooklyn, Cynthia Nixon, in her first official campaign venture, made the case for herself to become the next governor of NY, an impassioned liberal who would lead vigorously from the left.

"She's an accomplished actress, a supporter of political causes and that's a good thing", Quinn explained.

Speaking at a rally days after Trump was inaugurated, she said: "As LGBT people, we know how important coming out is, but I would argue that our coming out has never been more important than it is right now".

Nixon also blames Cuomo for condoning a splinter group of Democrats in the state senate, the Independent Democratic Conference, which she says has kept Republicans in power in that chamber throughout Cuomo's tenure.

"I can't think of a worse time to pick some holier than thou contest with a guy who has a great progressive record".

In a gift from the political gods, Nixon was waylaid by subway trouble on her way over to the event where she attacked Gov. Andrew Cuomo as a "fake Democrat" responsible for New York's vast income, educational, and racial inequality. It's time for an outsider.
