Sarah Jessica Parker Endorses ‘Sex And The City’ Pal Cynthia Nixon

The New York gubernatorial election may still be months away, but Cynthia Nixon has already locked down three votes — those of her “Sex and the City” castmates.

On Thursday, Sarah Jessica Parker announced on Instagram that she would support Nixon in her run for New York governor, writing “A mother. An activist. An advocate. A fighter. A NY’er. A dear friend. Running for Governor of our great state. My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support and vote.”

“Sex and the City’s” Charlotte and Samantha have also supported Nixon since her announcement last week, with Kristin Davis tweeting, “I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education. I know she would be an excellent Governor!” Kim Cattrall, despite feuding publicly with some of her co-stars, most notably Parker, also said, “I support and respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices.”
