After much speculation, activist and actress Cynthia Nixon has announced she is running for Governor of New York.
Nixon, who has never before run for elected office, released her intentions via a video Monday. She is hoping to force a Democratic primary with Governor Andrew Cuomo.
A new Siena College poll shows Governor Cuomo holding a wide lead over Nixon in a Democratic primary, 66 percent to 19 percent.
