Kirsten Gillibrand officially jumps into 2020 race
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand officially jumped in the 2020 presidential race on Sunday by declaring her Democratic candidacy with a campaign video titled “Brave Wins.”
“Brave doesn’t pit people against one another. Brave doesn’t put money over lives. Brave doesn’t spread hate, cloud truth, build a wall. That’s what fear does,” Gillibrand says over news footage, including of President Donald Trump.
Gillibrand, 52, is one of six women seeking the Democratic nomination and one of six senators running for president.
The New York Democrat launched an exploratory campaign in January, announcing it on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and has spent the past two months traveling to key states.
