“I’m excited about her candidacy. I’m proud of her. I know she loves this city. She’s born and raised here, and I think a lot of people are excited and enthusiastically supporting her,” Parker said.

She added: “I think she’s been great for the conversation.”

Sex And The City ran on HBO from 1998-2004 and spawned two films.

Parker has previously endorsed Nixon, along with Sex And The City co-star Kristin Davis. Nixon is challenging New York governor Andrew Cuomo in the upcoming Democratic primary.
