In a video message on March 19, Nixon announced her primary challenge to Cuomo, having been an outspoken critic of his administration. "It is tough", Nixon said. "I have to say, when Andrew Cuomo ran eight years ago, he was a celebrity because he was the son of Mario Cuomo".

However, in the clip provided to Us Weekly, Nixon added: "We love the clothes!" "We have such an appetite now, that's why I'm running".

The actress turned activist, who is challenging incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic nomination for New York's governor, has come out in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana.
