It was a hard-fought race -- fancy bagels and all! Cynthia Nixon conceded defeat to incumbent New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Thursday and thanked her supporters for their passion: "While the result tonight wasn’t what we had hoped for, I’m not discouraged. I’m inspired. I hope you are too. We have fundamentally changed the political landscape in this state," the 52-year-old Sex and the City star posted in a series of Tweets after the polls closed on Thursday. “This isn’t just a symbolic victory. This campaign forced the Governor to make concrete commitments that will change the lives of people across this state."

Nixon called out Cuomo, demanding he be "accountable for the commitments he's made" during the race. She Tweeted: "these are real victories. Some people have called this #TheCynthiaEffect. I call it what happens when we hold our leaders accountable."

The candidate had plenty of celebrity support -- her SATC co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, comedienne Amy Schumer, Debra Messing and even Cardi B all voted for the actress and implored others to do the same.

Still, incumbent Cuomo led by 32 percentage points which Nixon actually labeled as a failing, saying anything less than a 41-point margin "would be a major embarrassment and significant under-performance for the two-term incumbent."
