Sarah Jessica Parker (left) endorsed her former co-star Cynthia Nixon in her bid for governor.

Nixon is challenging Governor Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic nomination. Pressed by the New York Post on her position, the "Divorce" actress released a statement to the outlet Wednesday that sounded kind of lukewarm: "Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls". "I'm so proud of her and I know she will work tirelessly to create change for all who need representation".

The New York gubernatorial election may still be months away, but Cynthia Nixon has already locked down three votes - those of her Sex and the City castmates.

She added: "To learn more, read about @cynthiaenixon or donate go to https://cynthiafornewyork.com/ Xx, SJ".

Cuomo, elected in 2010 and re-elected in 2014, is fighting for $550 million in funding for the state-run New York City Housing Authority, or NYCHA.

"A mother, an activist, an advocate, a fighter, a NY'er", Parker wrote.

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.

Meanwhile, two of Nixon's other co-stars, Kristin Davis (a.k.a. Charlotte York) as well as her former on-screen husband David Eigenberg (known as Steve) have also given the candidate their seal of approval.

"I'm grateful for all of the support I've received from my "Sex and the City" community", Nixon said, according to People.

"New York is where I was raised and where I'm raising my kids", she said in an ad announcing her candidacy. "I'm a proud public school graduate and a prouder public school parent". I've never lived anywhere else.

"New York is my home". She has been an outspoken critic of Cuomo and his administration.
