Actress and gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon has visited a New York City public housing high-rise where she says conditions are "devastating". "Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls", she toldPage Six in a statement through her spokeswoman. "I know that she would be an excellent Governor".

ET spoke with 51-year-old Nixon while she was en route to her first campaign event in Brooklyn, New York, last Tuesday.

"A mother An activist An advocate A fighter A NY'er A dear friend", she wrote alongside a photo of Nixon.

Nixon was already endorsed by another fellow "Sex and the City" castmate Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte.

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. If Nixon's run turns out not to be the one thing they can all agree on, at least we know that avoiding more drama surrounding the show seems to be top at all of their lists of priorities.

It was the ultimate sign of overreliance on one player and Jogi Lowe's side could smell blood right there and then. And with the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino up front they are not short of attacking riches.

Davis later followed that up with another tweet, saying, "I'm excited to support someone I have (known) for 20 years to be one of the most intelligent and caring people in my life!"

"Sex and the City" costume designer Patricia Field told Page Six that Nixon "is an original".

All this, you'd think, would appeal to SJP, a vocal democrat who hosted a massive fundraiser for Barack Obama and even once reprised her long-ago role as Annie in singing "Tomorrow" at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

Kim Cattrall (Samantha) also tweeted about Nixon, writing, "I support and respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices".
