Cynthia Nixon calls public housing conditions 'devastating'

Sarah Jessica Parker has officially endorsed Cynthia Nixon Thursday as she embarks on her journey to become the next NY governor.

The actress and activist will challenge Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the state's Democratic primary in September.

But in a statement Wednesday to the New York Post's Page Six, Parker didn't appear on board ― at least yet.

"Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls", Parker said, through a spokesperson. "I know that she would be an excellent Governor!" she gushed.

"My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support and vote", Parker wrote, encouraging people to read about Nixon on her website.

Its owner, the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management , has said it will give up that ownership once restructuring is complete.

But Parker's lukewarm words didn't quite indicate that. In fact, the ongoing feud about a potential third movie, Nixon's run for governor is going rather smoothly with her former castmates. "I know that she cares deeply about the issues facing all of us".

Kim Cattrall, meanwhile, responded to a question on Twitter about Nixon's campaign by saying, "I support & respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices".

But while Nixon hasn't been elected to office before, she does have a history of political activism, and she's running a very left-wing campaign. Parker and Davis have now explicitly endorsed Nixon, and even Cattrall seems to be doing so, too.

Willie Garson (who played Stanford Blatch), Evan Handler (Harry Goldenblatt), and David Eigenberg (Steve Brady) also tweeted sentiments for Nixon.

Cuomo is fighting for $550 million in state funding for the New York City Housing Authority. "We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us".
