Cynthia Nixon made a stop in Charlottesville Friday afternoon to rally for President Barack Obama. The Obama campaign is kicking off a weekend of action across the commonwealth.
The "Sex and the City" star spoke to supporters and volunteers at the Obama for America office on the downtown mall, and focused on Obama's record on women's issues. Nixon says she and her wife got married recently, and they loved knowing the president approved of their union. She also says President Obama's health care plan is what this country needs.
"As a cancer survivor, you know, maybe the number one thing that I am proud of and grateful to the president for doing is for passing Obamacare, insuring 30 million Americans who didn't have coverage before, and for people like me, cancer is considered a preexisting condition," Nixon said.
Nixon says if it were not for Obamacare, it would be very hard for people like her to get insurance. She thanked volunteers for their hard work and urged them to continue their grassroots efforts these final few days.
