Asked about whether Mayor de Blasio could be pushing the "Sex and the City" star into the political arena, Cuomo joked on a conference call: "I think it was either the mayor of NY or Vladimir Putin".

The seat for governor will be up, as well as many seats in the state legislature.

Cuomo also joked when asked if Nixon had a name recognition edge over him, saying if that was the case he hoped Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Billy Joel don't run for governor.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday $1.6 million in funding for 20 "mobile clinics" to fight the opioid crisis across New York State, four of which will be deployed in Tompkins County.


"If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public", her publicist told The Times. The actress is reportedly preparing to campaign for the Democratic nomination ahead of the September primary, NY1 reported Tuesday. She hasn't shut down speculation around running for office. "I've heard them. I've read them".

"The breadth of this year's flu epidemic has reminded all of us that we must remain vigilant in protecting ourselves and our loved ones", Cuomo said.

Nixon was also among the star-studded cast of actors, entertainers and activists who came together for "the People's State of the Union" in January, an alternative event to President Donald Trump's first State of the Union speech.
