    Cynthia Nixon's name is being mentioned as a possible candidate for governor in New York.

    The "Sex & the City" actress has been approached by liberal groups encouraging her to mount a Democratic primary challenge against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, The Wall Street Journal was first to report. 

    Nixon is active in liberal politics in the state. She has not weighed in on her possible candidacy. A message left with her agent was not immediately returned Friday.

    The director of the Alliance for Quality Education tells the Journal that Nixon has progressive credentials and her candidacy would excite voters.
