New York Working Families Party Endorses Cynthia Nixon

Cynthia Nixon got a major progressive endorsement in her primary challenge against New York Gov.

Andrew Cuomo.

The  New York Working Families Party , a coalition of labor unions and activist groups, decided to endorse Nixon on Saturday.

Nixon is probably best known for playing Miranda Hobbes on HBO's "Sex and the City." Cuomo reportedly decided  not to seek  the group's endorsement Friday night after it became clear the WFP would support Nixon.

Some WFP leaders left the group in apparent solidarity with Cuomo, highlighting a growing rift within the state's Democratic Party.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
