ALBANY, N.Y. (AP/WHAM) -- Cynthia Nixon is taking her campaign for governor upstate as the Democratic primary nears.

The longtime liberal activist and former "Sex and the City" star made a stop in Rochester on Friday.

Nixon addressed supporters at a rally Friday night at the Thomas J. Ryan Community Center, and then knocked on citizens' doors.

She faces Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Sept. 13 primary.

Nixon's upstate trip comes after the two candidates held a debate on Long Island Wednesday that focused largely on downstate issues.

Nixon says she's disappointed that Cuomo declined her invitation to debate somewhere upstate but will take her message directly to upstate voters.

Polls suggest Cuomo has a commanding lead going into the election.
