'Unqualified lesbian': Christine Quinn slams Cynthia Nixon over bid for NY governor

Barely a day has passed since actress Cynthia Nixon announced her gubernatorial bid for NY governor. Is this a serious bid?

In an interview with The Post, Quinn called the "Sex and the City" star an "unqualified lesbian".

Ms. Nixon laid out her biography: the child of a single mother with whom she had lived in a fifth-floor walk-up, a graduate of New York City public schools who sends her own children to them, a young woman who paid for her college education herself.

"I'm surprised by this race".

Nixon is considered the underdog in the September 13 primary, with 66 percent of registered Democrats supporting Cuomo, compared with 19 percent for Nixon, according to a Siena College poll released on Monday.

Photo Cynthia Nixon found fame on a show that celebrated luxury in the city. Now she wants to be an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of NY. "I was attempting to make a comparison between the two of us", she continued.

In Nixon's official campaign announcement video, the native New Yorker and mum-of-three said she was "given chances I just don't see for most of New York's kids today" and claimed the current leaders in power "are letting us down".

Rita's also announced that it will give away free Italian ice , something it has done every year for more than 20 years. The offer is good at participating non-mall locations and limited to one per person.

Her campaign sets up a battle for the Sept 13 primary between a celebrity on the left of the Democratic Party and a moderate governor who is often mentioned as a possible presidential hopeful in 2020. "But she's never run an organization". Despite her lack of experience, it looks like Nixon has a pretty good grasp of the political game so far.

However, she did not retract her assessment of the actress as unqualified.

In one scene, a subway vehicle breezes by, rustling Nixon's famous red hair, before flashing to a shot of her onboard looking a little irked. "This is a time to move away from celebrity and toward progressive leadership".

Nixon didn't seem all too bothered by Quinn's comments, however.

As quoted in the Post, Nixon's response to Quinn's criticisms was that "her being a lesbian and my being a lesbian" is not the issue, and that the race is about "the corruption in Albany".

Quinn later took to Twitter to say Nixon's identity "has no bearing on her candidacy and it was not my intention to suggest it did". I want to be clear about that. It's time for an outsider. "I would never, EVER, criticize someone due to their identity", Quinn tweeted.
