Emmy and Tony winning actress and an out and proud member of team LGBT Cynthia Nixon has been on the stump for President Obama in Florida this week and she said neither she nor her Sex and the City alter ego Miranda Hobbes would ever consider voting for Mitt Romney. In fact, she suggested none of the Sex and the City gals would vote for him.
The 46-year-old mom, who married her partner Christine Marinoni in New York in May of this year, has made several stops at Obama rallies around the state from Sarasota to Ybor City to Orlando making a case for voting for Obama on LGBT rights and women’s rights.
Regarding Obama’s stance on equality CL Tampa reported she said:
"You know, everybody used to say about Bill Clinton that he was the first African-American president, but I think that Barack Obama is the first gay president. My wife and I got married this May — and I know it took him a little while to get there, but the fact that he came out fully for marriage equality for all Americans — we've never had a president come anywhere close to that. And I know that if we can keep him in there for another four years, we're gonna see the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act."
But Nixon didn’t just focus on LGBT equality. As a mother, a woman and a cancer survivor she also discussed Obamacare, which seeks to insure people with “pre-existing conditions” like cancer, and she praised the President for signing the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act for women, the fist bill Obama signed in office.
“For me as a woman, as a mother of a teenage girl, as a gay woman, as a cancer survivor; Barack Obama, we have to have four more years,” Nixon said in an interview with Melony Torres, according to 102JamzOrlando.
Regarding whether or not Miranda, the character she inhabited for six seasons on HBO’s smash series Sex and the City would vote for Obama or Mitt Romney Nixon told Torres, “I think Miranda Hobbes would rather shoot herself in the head than vote for Mitt Romney,” Nixon exclaimed. “Mitt Romney is so terrible on women’s issues.”
Nixon didn’t stop there though. She spoke for the other SATC women as well.
“I know that there are women who support him, and it’s hard for me to understand, but certainly Miranda nor Carrie nor Charlotte nor Samantha, none of those women would ever vote for Mitt Romney,” Nixon said. “They would do something terrible first before they would ever vote for Mitt Romney.”
