Former Mayor Stephanie Miner has recently announced she’s changed the name of her campaign committee from “Miner For Mayor” to “Miner for NY,” in a move that’s led some to speculate the former mayor may be on the verge of running for governor.
Until recently, Miner has said she’s been undecided about whether to enter the gubernatorial race; however, on April 9, she announced via Twitter that the committee change would allow her “to continue to engage New Yorkers on issues that matter.”
The change would also give Miner the ability to accept campaign contributions through the account.
“Today I changed my Miner For Mayor campaign account to Miner for NY – an administrative action that will allow me to continue to engage New Yorkers on issues that matter. #NYS,” Miner stated in a tweet.
Former “Sex and the City” actress Cynthia Nixon has also recently announced she would enter the governor’s race in a Democratic primary, opposing incumbent Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Nixon stopped by the Southwest Community Center recently, during a tour throughout upstate New York.
Primary candidates have until July 12 to file petitions to run for party designations with the state Board of Elections.
