Earlier this week, Sex And The City actress Cynthia Nixon announced that she is running for governor in NY.
To be honest, I have mixed feeling about her running.
It’s no secret that there is obvious corruption in the highest levels of state government. More than a few government officials have been accused and/or found guilty of using their power for less than honorable means.
While her political activism is well-known, she lacks real world political experience. I think myself and many other voters might think twice about voting for a candidate who lacks a professional political background. Especially considering that you know is sending this country to Hades in hand basket.
My other concern is that while she appeals to left leaning voters who live in and around New York City, she also has to appeal to voters who live in the rest of the state. Once you get out of New York City, what is blue when it comes to politics becomes red.
Her name recognition certainly helps, but she will need more than that, if she is to find herself in Albany later this year.
Only time will tell if she wins the election, but I have a feeling that it will not be an easy path to walk on, metaphorically speaking.
