Today, former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon announced her run for New York governor. In the two-minute video she made revealing her candidacy, Nixon outlined key topics she plans to tackle if she wins the seat—including fixing the god-awful New York City subway system, fighting for women's rights, paving the way for equality, and closing the state's immense wealth gap.

Not only is SATC's strong-minded, tough Miranda Hobbs coming to life as she battles against two-time incumbent Andrew Cuomo, but Nixon is (hopefully) going to be the first woman to hold the position. There may be no Sex and the City 3, but this news has fans feeling elated. Here, the best reactions to Nixon's announcement.
