Cynthia Nixon Runs For New York Governor: Miranda's Best 'Sex And The City' Quotes

Her finest one-liners from 'Sex And The City'.

She announced her campaign on Monday night (19 March), sharing her first campaign video, along with a tweet that simply read: “I love New York, and today I’m announcing my candidacy for governor.”

Cynthia is best known for her portrayal of Miranda Hobbes in ‘Sex And The City’, a role for which she bagged an Emmy in 2004 (presented to her, intriguingly, by none other than ‘The Apprentice’ star Donald Trump, whose career has also taken an unpredictably political turn in recent years).
