Cynthia Nixon Lost to Governor Andrew Cuomo NY Democratic Primary

New Yorkers voted, and they decided that Cynthia Nixon would not be able to do the job in Albany as governor of New York. The former Sex & The City star lost to the current governor Andrew Cuomo. 

Cynthia sent out a thread of tweets, acknowledging that “while the result tonight wasn’t what we had hoped for, I’m not discouraged. I’m inspired,” adding, “We have fundamentally changed the political landscape in this state.”

“We reached out to voters who’d never been talked to, and on issues they’d never heard addressed by any candidate. We expanded the electorate by bringing new voters and younger voters into the process — and we did it all without accepting a dime of corporate money.”

Then, “Thank you all for believing and fighting and leaving it all on the field. We started something here in New York, and it doesn’t end today. This is just the beginning. And I know that together, we will win this fight.”

Cynthia ran on stances like fixing New York City’s subway system, legalizing marijuana, and supporting single-payer healthcare. But turns out, it wasn’t enough.
