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.
Miranda for Governor is the ending to SATC that we so richly deserved.March 19, 2018
“...I couldn’t help but wonder...could Miranda fix the subway? Or was it me that needed fixing?” pic.twitter.com/xpE9EjSqqpMarch 19, 2018
"She was fed up with New York's education system and women being pushed to the periphery by a political apparatus that dismissed them as convenient votes with inconvenient opinions. And as I sat there, I wondered: was Cynthia Nixon playing Miranda or was Miranda there all along?" pic.twitter.com/0UTngTDnmxMarch 19, 2018
What a delight today is for every woman who’s ever been called a “Miranda” as an insult.March 19, 2018

Cynthia Nixon is running for governor. Naturally, you may want to question what experience she really has in governing. As a gay man I can assure you that all lesbians are qualified to do literally every job. They are the most prepared humans on the planet.March 19, 2018
