Cynthia Nixon tends bar at fund-raiser for campaign
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.
