Cynthia Nixon campaign merch is a nod to ‘Sex and the City’ 

Before she started her run for governor of New York, Cynthia Nixon was best known for her role as Miranda, one of the four main characters on the HBO smash “Sex and the City.” Now, she’s released some campaign merchandise that is a nod to her smart and practical character. “I’m a Miranda and I’m voting for Cynthia” reads one shirt. Another has text reading “I’m a Miranda” with “Miranda” crossed out and “Governor” posted on top. A toddler shirt has the same concept except it says “future Governor of New York.”
