Actress Cynthia Nixon is running for governor.
The former "Sex and the City" star made her formal announcement on Monday.
A Siena College poll that came out Monday shows New Yorkers favor Cuomo over Nixon at the moment by a 66 to 19% margin.
WGY Capitol Correspondent Ken Lovett of the Daily News says many liberal Democrats feel that Cuomo still isn't progressive enough.
Nixon, a graduate of New York City public schools, says kids today don't have the same opportunities she had and adds New York is the most unequal state in the country, with incredible wealth and extreme poverty.
