Asked About Potential Rival Cynthia Nixon, Cuomo Jokes Of Russian Connection

According to NY1, Nixon is assembling an exploratory staff that includes former advisors to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Katz and Hyers used to advise Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is frequently at odds with Cuomo.

Ms. Nixon, best known for her role in the "Sex and the City" franchise, would also be New York's first female and openly gay governor, if elected.

Cuomo didn't pay too much heed to Nixon's potential challenge yesterday, telling reporters with a laugh: "In this business, you can't let these things bother you".

"That would really be a problem", Cuomo said.

Nixon, in an interview previous year on NBC's "Today" show, blamed Cuomo for what she called the widening gap between the richest and poorest schools. The paper reported that she once said the Cuomo was "shortchanging the children of NY".

Cynthia has said in the past, publicly, that she would considering a run.

The actress' rep did not deny that she was considering a gubernatorial run, instead releasing a statement that says, "many concerned New Yorkers have been encouraging Cynthia to run for office, and as she has said previously, she will continue to explore it".

Nixon has been outspoken critic of Cuomo's education policies. "He was able to expose, and then exploit, in a sickening way how desperate working people are and how little the Democratic Party is paying attention to them, because no different than the Republican Party, it has been focused for too long, and too intently, on the big money interests that fund its campaigns". "Otherwise you won't last long".

He said, "We're hoping that either Stephanie or Cynthia Nixon run, but neither one has indicated to us that they are near a decision".

Cuomo has said he's interested in seeking a third term in office, but has not yet formally announced his intentions. In his 2014 re-election, a primary challenger with little name recognition, Zephyr Teachout, won roughly 34 percent of the vote to Cuomo's 62 percent, leading to speculation that Cuomo, a moderate, might be vulnerable to a challenge from a well-funded progressive.
