New York Gubernatorial Candidate Cynthia Nixon Responds To T.I.'s Endorsement

The actress/activist thanks Tip for his support.

(AllHipHop News) T.I. is a current resident of Georgia. But after seeing a clip of Cynthia Nixon advocating for the legalization of marijuana on racial justice grounds, the Atlanta-bred rapper was ready to bring the New York gubernatorial candidate down to the Peach State.

"I have no idea who this brilliant lady is...But shes invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if shes running for anything...ANYTHING I SAY..Shes got my vote!!! Right on to the Righteous Decent White People out there, using their privilege to make a difference!!!" T.I. tweeted on Monday.

The Sex and the City star got wind of Tip's Twitter comment. She sent out her own tweet, quoting the Grand Hustle leader 's post.

"Thanks for the support, @tip! BTW: My name is Cynthia, and I am going to be the next Governor of New York. Please encourage your friends out here in the Empire State to vote this Thursday, 9/13!" wrote Nixon.

Current New York governor Andrew Cuomo is seeking reelection, but first, he has to get past Nixon in the Democratic primary on September 13. A recent poll had Cuomo up 40 points on Nixon among likely voters.
