Sarah Jessica Parker talks Cynthia Nixon's run for governor of NY

Sarah Jessica Parker has endorsed her "Sex and the City" costar Cynthia Nixon in her bid for NY governor.

"Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls", she said through a spokeswoman. "I'm excited to support someone I have know (n) for 20 years to be one of the most intelligent and caring people in my life!" she tweeted on March 19.

The much-publicized fight between Parker and Cattrall, which has been rumored for years, came to a head in the wake of Cattrall losing her brother. A dear friend. Running for Governor of our great state.

Nixon last week announced she would oppose Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo in a September primary, prompting quick and enthusiastic reactions from "SATC" castmates Kristin Davis (Charlotte) and Willie Garson (Stanford Blatch).

Parker cleared it all up on Thursday morning with an Instagram post praising Nixon and officially checking the ballot box for her "sister on and off screen".

But while Nixon hasn't been elected to office before, she does have a history of political activism, and she's running a very left-wing campaign.

Later, on Instagram, Parker made it clear that she supports her good friend.

"Sex and the City" costume designer Patricia Field told Page Six that Nixon "is an original". "Now she wants an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York", Quinn said. "She's a New York City mom, very practical and down-to-earth".

All this, you'd think, would appeal to SJP, a vocal democrat who hosted a massive fundraiser for Barack Obama and even once reprised her long-ago role as Annie in singing "Tomorrow" at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

Kim Cattrall also tweeted her support.
