Cynthia Nixon has failed to secure her place as Governor of New York City.

The actress, best known for her role as Miranda in Sex and the City, lost out on the Democratic Party nomination on Thursday’s primary to Andrew Cuomo.

Cynthia was a first time candidate, and was backed by a number of celebrities, including Cardi B.

However, the 52-year-old failed to win the race, but she’s since vowed to “keep fighting” in a message to her supporters on Twitter.

“This is an incredible moment for progressives, but it’s not just a moment – it’s a movement, and this movement is only growing stronger,” she said.

“Our numbers show that the younger you are, the more likely it is that you voted for me today. I’m particularly proud of that fact, and it gives me so much hope for the future of our party and our country.

“The generation coming of age in Obama and Trump’s America is one of the most progressive generations in history. You are going to change America – and for the first time in our history create a nation that finally belongs to all of us,” she continued.

“This is not a time to settle for the way things are, or sit back and hope for things to change. This is a time to fight. As long as New York remains the single most unequal state in the country, we will keep fighting.”

“Thank you all for believing and fighting and leaving it all on the field. We started something here in New York, and it doesn’t end today. This is just the beginning. And I know that together, we will win this fight,” she added.
