Sarah Jessica Parker breaks silence on Cynthia Nixon's gubernatorial run

After Cynthia Nixon, better known as Miranda Hobbes, announced her candidacy for NY governor last week, previous NY mayoral candidate Christine Quinn-perhaps still pissed that Nixon endorsed Bill de Blasio over her in the 2013 Democratic Primary-called Nixon an "unqualified lesbian".

Well, it seems the two discussed all they needed to because Parker has since issued a glowing public endorsement of her "sister on and off screen".

"I support & respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices", Cattrall tweeted after a fan asked her opinion. "I know that she would be an excellent Governor!" she wrote.

The socially shared words of encouragement follow speculation that Parker wouldn't be pairing her signature stilettos with a "Nixon for Guv" T-shirt anytime soon.

"Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City".

Nixon will run as a Democrat against the Empire State's incumbent Gov. But the 53-year-old actress did not clearly endorse Nixon's bid.

Her campaign says she will speak at noon Monday at a news conference on school funding inequities before meeting with parents of school children from around the state. "Running for Governor of our great state", she wrote. "People have actually been asking me to do this for nine years". "We worked on an incredible series for many years together, and my colleagues' ongoing support for my years of activism, and now my campaign, means a lot to me". I've never lived anywhere else. "But something has to change".

Nixon announced her candidacy earlier this month, with a relatable video that highlighted public schools, underserved communities, and public transportation as some of her primary focuses. He's served as New York's governor since 2011.

Representatives for Parker and Nixon did not immediately return Newsweek's request for comment.
