The New York Times reports:
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, an outspoken advocate for women’s causes and electing more women to office, is entering the 2020 race for the White House herself, becoming the latest candidate to join what is expected to be a crowded Democratic primary to take on President Trump.
In an appearance Tuesday on the “Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Ms. Gillibrand , a New York Democrat, said she was forming an exploratory committee to raise money and travel the country for her run. She is scheduled to start campaigning within days, with plans to spend the weekend in Iowa.
“I’m going to run for president of the United States because as a young mom I am going to fight for other people’s kids as hard as I would fight for my own,’’ she said.
Gillibrand is still suffering from the ramifications of throwing one of America’s best progressive senators Al Franken under a bus without due process for the sake of the #MeToo movement and to further her political career. A move which backfired on her greatly.
