Gov. Candidate Cynthia Nixon Slams Cuomo

Sex & The City star Cynthia Nixon just announced she was running for (aka wasting her time) Governor of New York. One of her biggest platforms versus incumbent Andrew Cuomo is his lack of success in getting the MTA up to the standard that they should be.

So one can only begin to laugh that on her first day as an official candidate, the MTA was the reason why she was late to her first campaign event. Here is more via Jillian Jorgensen & Kenneth Lovett of the New York Daily News:

On her first full day as a candidate for governor, the subway system made Cynthia Nixon’s point for her.

The “Sex & the City” star was held up on her way to her very first event in Brownsville due to subway delays — a problem she lay at the feet of Gov. Cuomo.

“I got here just in the nick of time. I allowed an hour and a half for what should have been a 30 minute ride,” Nixon told the crowd. “Cuomo’s MTA.”

Nixon’s delayed commute had been well-documented by her team on Twitter — including in a post that showed her shrugging her arms in the universal gesture of straphanger frustration.

“That thing when you’re headed to talk about fixing the subways and your train goes out of service. #CuomosMTA,” tweeted Rebecca Katz, a consultant working on Nixon’s bid.

I have to laugh that one of her biggest rallying points is the need for an improved MTA & it was the reason why she was late for her first campaign event. Maybe it was a sign or perhaps just the reality that someone who lives in Manhattan & has the money she has could not possibly relate to. By time the primary is done, we won’t have to hear about her anymore as she will be soundly defeated.
