Cynthia Nixon may run for New York governor

"I think it was probably either the Mayor of NY or Vladimir Putin", Cuomo said with a chuckle.

During her appearance on The View previous year, she accused the Governor - who is seeking a third term in office - of "shortchanging the children of NY". The governor and New York City mayor, both Democrats, have had a long running rivalry.

Ms. Nixon, a spokeswoman for the union-backed Alliance for Quality Education for years, joined Twitter in December and has quickly amassed 25,000 followers while sending only 41 tweets, majority about politics.

A spokesman for the governor said Cuomo was just trying to have a bit of fun, and is not linking Nixon to the Russian leader.

Just months before, while appearing on The View, she criticized Cuomo for, as she said, "shortchanging the children of NY". Ms. Nixon was a regular presence on the campaign trail for Blasio in 2013, and Ms. Nixon's wife, Christine Marinoni, works in the de Blasio administration.

Nixon has previously said "maybe" when asked if she's running.

Last month, she penned an article for CNN, encouraging political activism, and urging more people from the left to run for office.

He said, "We're hoping that either Stephanie or Cynthia Nixon run, but neither one has indicated to us that they are near a decision".

And in January, the actress wrote on Twitter: "Taking our country back is going to require all of us to step up and take action - including more women, people of colour, queer people, and first-generation Americans running for office".

Cuomo has said he's interested in seeking a third term in office, but has not yet formally announced his intentions.

"In this business, you can't let these things bother you, " he said.

Cuomo reportedly has his own larger political aspirations, eyeing a run at the presidency in 2020. In his 2014 re-election, a primary challenger with little name recognition, Zephyr Teachout, won roughly 34 percent of the vote to Cuomo's 62 percent, leading to speculation that Cuomo, a moderate, might be vulnerable to a challenge from a well-funded progressive.
