Quinn, who is also a CNN contributor, admitted she and the "Sex and the City" actress are both supporters of progressive positions, but she said there is more to running the state of NY than being a liberal celebrity. Nixon announced her candidacy Monday. "But I don't think this is going to be a close race", said Mr. Arzt. Her two elder children are Jewish and she takes part in progressive congregations in NY.

In an interview with New York Post published on Wednesday, Quinn slammed Nixon for endorsing Bill de Blasio over her in the 2013 Democratic primary for mayor.

Quinn also revisited the fact that Nixon supported de Blasio for mayor despite "qualified lesbian" Quinn's extensive progressive credentials and record as an elected official as she self-evaluated.

Before Nixon made her long-rumored announcement, Dershowitz wrote, "Cynthia Nixon may run for Gov of NY". One user said, "You literally called her an "unqualified lesbian"".

Nixon, 51, responded to the criticism by saying being a lesbian is not the issue.

Nixon added, "Our state could thrive if we didn't have a governor determined to sell NY off to the highest bidder".

"My point was to draw a similarity between the two of us and to draw a clear contrast as it relates to her being completely unqualified to be the governor of the state of NY", she said.

She said the city needed improvements to its subway network (economics-y term: infrastructure). "It's like the smoke has cleared in some way and gays, blacks, Caucasians and everybody is able to see beyond the person that might look like them, and go more for the person's voting record or the person's plan for the city".

In a series of tweets later Wednesday, Quinn attempted to clarify her remarks.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in his first public comments since challenger Cynthia Nixon announced her candidacy, dismissed two days of attacks as the "political silly season". I too want to scream every time I ride the MTA. Show me a compelling reason to cast my vote - and for my teenage daughter to cast her first ever vote - in your direction.
