Advocate and actor Cynthia Nixon, best known for starring in "Sex and the City," is officially running for governor of New York. Many have expressed support for Nixon's candidacy—she's a lifelong New Yorker who has advocated for LGBT rights, public education, and income inequality. Some believe anyone would be better than Andrew Cuomo. But others are sick of seeing celebrities get into politics. We should have learned our lesson that expertise trumps fame. What do you think?

Actor Cynthia Nixon officially announced her candidacy to be governor of New York on Twitter.

Many have expressed their support of Nixon. She's had a long career as both an actor and progressive advocate.

Others feel anyone would be better than Andrew Cuomo.

But others are tired of celebrity candidates. Nixon has never held public office and now she thinks she's qualified to govern one of the largest, most complex states in the union?

But others point out many celebrities have run for office and gone on to make good politicians.

And the attacks on Nixon are sexist more than anything.
