Voters Say No To Nixon
Former Sex & The City star Cynthia Nixon’s bid for elected office has hit the buffers.
She had been be challenging for the Democratic Party nomination for Governor of New York. The incumbent, Democrat Andrew Cuomo, won the primary yesterday by a 2:1 margin, taking around 65% of the vote to Nixon’s 35%.
Her campaign drew a queer media storm when she was denounced by a fellow Democrat as an “Unqualified Lesbian”. Nixon has labelled herself publicly as variously bisexual and queer, which seems to make her particularly unqualified, but we haven’t seen a copy of the exam paper.
Elsewhere in the US there is at least one bi candidate whose campaign has met success so far.
