August 31, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) — Add bartender to the resume of actress and New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon.

The New York Post reports that Nixon got behind the bar and poured drinks Thursday during a fund-raiser in Queens.

Nixon is challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Sept. 13 Democratic primary. Thursday’s event at a tavern in the Astoria neighborhood was a joint fund-raiser for Nixon and state Senate candidate Jessica Ramos.

Ramos posted pictures on social media of herself at the fund-raiser with Nixon and lieutenant governor candidate Jumaane Williams. The three are all running primary campaigns against Democratic incumbents.

Nixon’s bartending shift capped a long day that included TV appearances on MSNBC and local news station NY1.

The former “Sex and the City” star sparred with Cuomo on Wednesday during their only debate.
