Cynthia Nixon accepts endorsement from NY's Working Families Party

Trail council is advancing the process for retail sales of recreational-use marijuana in the city

Cynthia Nixon's campaign for governor continues with her latest video about why she supports legalizing the use of recreational marijuana in NY.

Cynthia Nixon, second from left, poses for photos with members of the Working Families Party, including co-chair Karen Scharff, second from right, after securing the party's endorsement Saturday at the Albany Hilton. Executive director, Bill Lipton, says many in the party blame Cuomo for the continued control of the State Senate by Republicans, saying Cuomo didn't do enough to help Democrats win seats and mend differences.

The set included Bon Jovi classics such as "You Give Love a Bad Name", "It's My Life", "When We Were Us" and "Livin' on a Prayer". The band paid tribute to the late founding bassist and co-lead singer with a performance that inlcluded his biggest songs.

"I am so proud to accept the endorsement of the Working Families Party", Nixon told the enthusiastic crowd of progressive and activist groups. But Cuomo said Friday he would not seek its backing this year.

The party describes itself as the state's progressive political party. It's possible that pressure from progressives and people like Nixon are convincing him to possibly evolve on the issue. NYPAN, the main New York State affiliate of Our Revolution, came out of Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and has grown to 30 chapters and 8 affiliates throughout the state with thousands of grassroots members.

The designation means that if Nixon were to lose the Democratic primary for governor in September, she would still be on the statewide ballot in November. Despite the attention here campaign's received online, most polls show her trailing Cuomo by almost 50 points. I have seen firsthand the hard work NYPAN have been doing to organize for a better, more progressive NY, and stand up to Governor Cuomo's destructive policies by demanding we take big money out of politics once again.

Nixon is probably best known for her role as one of the stars in the TV show "Sex and the City" from the early 2000s, and has also won an Emmy, a Tony, and a Grammy award.
