How Cynthia Nixon's Sex and The City costars are reacting to her bid for Governor

Charlotte is definitely Team Miranda.

Actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, best known for playing Miranda on Sex and the City, has officially announced she is running for governor of New York. Nixon has already released her first ad, and has started raising funds for her campaign. She will run against current Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Democratic primaries later this year.

It looks like Nixon isn't alone in her campaign. Several of her Sex and the City costars have already joined in to support Nixon in her bid for public office.

Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte in the HBO series, was the first to voice her support for her co-star almost immediately after Nixon made the big announcement. "I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair chance and a good education," she tweeted. "I know that she would be an excellent governor!"

Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch, also voiced his support for Nixon on Instagram. He reposted Nixon's campaign video and endorsed her in the caption. "I cant think of anyone who's more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than @cynthiaenixon," he wrote. "Please join her on this journey, together we can turn things around with candidates such as her."

Evan Handler, who played Charlotte's husband Harry Goldenblatt, joked about joining Nixon's ticket after a fan tweeted at him hoping that they would run together. "Has a movement begun?" he joked.

Nixon will first go on the ballet against current Cuomo during the Democratic primaries in June.
