Actress Cynthia Nixon in Orlando to stump for Obama

ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Millions of women recognize and love her as the character known as Miranda from the popular HBO comedy-drama series "Sex and the City."  Cynthia Nixon was in Orlando on  Thursday to talk about her life after the show and her biggest priority at the moment, politics.

"I'm a very staunch supporter of Barack Obama.  I campaigned for him four years ago. I hadn't gotten around to doing anything like it this time," Nixon says.

On the heels of superstorm Sandy, which soaked her city and left so many people's lives on hold, Nixon decided to step away from her busy life in New York City to rally women in Florida to re-elect the president.  

"The president has always been so clear: women are adults and should make their own healthcare choices, its not like we are children who have to be corralled and controlled."

She said that, as a breast cancer survivor and lesbian who married her partner earlier this year,  she believes the president treats all people as equal.  She cited the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and the honoring of civil unions, and offering health care to everyone, especially women.

"People talk about a war on women and I really do feel like Romney is guilty of participating in that war."  

She admits the president isn't perfect and has room to improve, but still, she encourages everyone to get out and vote.  Her hope is that Obama gets four more years.

"We're going to win, but its going to be even closer than it was last time, and last time it was really close."
