Nixon has been a frequent, outspoken critic of Governor Cuomo, including during an appearance on "The View" back in April of this year.

"Basically, Gov. Cuomo is shortchanging the children of New York State," she said at the time. "He is not against public schools, but he doesn't like to pay for them."

She even went on to compare him to President Trump's controversial education secretary, Betsy Devos.

"Well, it was more about how Governor Cuomo is a little more like Betsy Devos than we like to think that he is," she explained.

Cuomo, who is planning on running for a third term in 2018, has faced some resistance from progressives in the state for years. Back in 2014, liberal professor Zephyr Teachout won 34 percent of the vote in her primary challenge to Cuomo.

A run for governor would be Nixon's first official foray into politics.
