NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Thursday marked the deadline for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Democratic challenger, Cynthia Nixon, to submit enough signatures to get her name on the primary ballot in September.

Nixon’s campaign said she collected 65,000 signatures – more than five times the number required under state law.

The “Sex and the City” actress and political activist said 35,000 volunteers statewide helped collect the signatures.

Nixon said the total reflects the public’s support for candidates who take on the establishment.

There was no immediate response from the Cuomo campaign.
