Actress-turned-politician Cynthia Nixon has garnered a big endorsement as she seeks the democratic nomination for governor of NY.
The former "Sex and the City" star received more than 90 percent of party members' votes at their annual committee meeting. She is challenging current NY governor Andrew Cuomo - who is running for a third term - for the Democratic party nomination. 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.
The Working Families Party was formed in 1998 by labor unions and community groups and advocates for progressive issues. But Cuomo said Friday he would not seek its backing this year.
"I'm not naming names, but anybody who says they would not accept the endorsement of the Working Families Party is not a true progressive in New York State", Williams said. Nixonmade a point to criticize such tactics on Saturday, and she had already been characterizing Cuomo as a Trump-like bully.
