Cynthia Nixon Goes on the Offensive in Her First Campaign Ad

"I was given chances I just don't see for most of New York's kids today. Our leaders are letting us down."

Cynthia Nixon, the television actress who is challenging New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in the Democratic primary, released on Monday her first campaign ad, which hits Cuomo indirectly for letting New Yorkers down.

The two-minute ad features Nixon explaining her personal history and why she is running for governor.

“New York is my home. I’ve never lived anywhere else. When I grew up here, it was just my mom and me in a one bedroom fifth-floor walk up,” Nixon said. “New York is where I was raised and where I’m raising my kids. I’m a proud public school graduate and a prouder public school parent.”

“I was given chances I just don’t see for most of New York’s kids today. Our leaders are letting us down,” Nixon said. “We are now the most unequal state in the entire country.”

“We want our government to work again on healthcare, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway,” Nixon added. “We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us.”

“I’m Cynthia Nixon. I’m a New Yorker, and together we can win this fight,” Nixon said.

A recent Siena College poll found Nixon trailing Cuomo by 47 points.
