Look! Cynthia Nixon Aims To Improve Racial Justice By Legalizing Marijuana

Cynthia Nixon: Marijuana is “Effectively Legal” For White People

'Sex and the City' Star Pushes For Legal Marijuana

A major New York progressive political party, the New York Working Families Party, endorsed Cynthia Nixon for New York governor, HuffPost reported.

Although Nixon's campaign has been seen as a long shot, obtaining one of the most sought-after endorsements might make her a more serious challenger to the two-time governor.

Former Sex and the City star and current Democratic candidate for NY governor Cynthia Nixon has embraced marijuana legalization, and now she's hoping cannabis fans will support her campaign.

The vote was taken by more than 175 members of the party's state committee.

JJ Redick topped all players in scoring with 28 points, and was one of three Sixers to reach the 20-point plateau. Miami has come back to win eight of 19 previous playoff series in which has lost the first game.

Nixon is mounting a progressive challenge against Cuomo.

The endorsement, along with party's backing New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams for lieutenant governor, offers an intriguing dynamic going into the fall. "I am running for Governor because we need a Governor who will stand with the people of NY". With only a little over two months before New York's primary, Nixon's going to need to start turning that buzz into votes. His camp announced late Friday he wouldn't seek WFP's endorsement following reports that the party would likely back Nixon.

But in 2014, the party started to fracture as some liberal groups grew disenchanted with Cuomo's moderate record and his relationship with Republicans who control the state Senate.

That didn't work, however, and large local chapters of the SEIU and Communications Workers of America both left the WFP on Friday as a result, though they were not the first unions to split from the party since it nearly endorsed Cuomo's last left-liberal challenger, Zephyr Teachout, in 2014. "We can build a movement that can win, but only if we all come together".
