Kirsten Gillibrand Officially Launches 2020 WH Bid

Kirsten Gillibrand Officially Launches 2020 WH Bid

Kirsten Gillibrand has become the latest US Democrat to join a crowded race to be the party's candidate for the 2020 presidential election.

The 53-year-old Albany native is joining the dozen-plus contenders, saying in a campaign video that the nation needs "a leader who makes big, bold, fearless choices". Someone who isn't afraid of progress.

In the two-minute-long video released on Sunday, Gillibrand announced that she is running for the White House and the video ends with an invitation to join Gillibrand at the Trump International Hotel on March 24, where she plans to deliver her positive, fearless vision of restoring America's moral integrity straight to President Trump's doorstep.

On 24 March, she will deliver a launch speech in her home state in front of Trump International Hotel, seeking to take "her positive, courageous vision of restoring America's moral integrity straight to President Trump's doorstep", her campaign said.

She has painted herself as a fierce Trump critic, and prided herself for voting against many of Trump's important political nominees. "That's what fear does", Kirsten Gillibrand says in her announcement video. "My community didn't have the gun violence that other parts of the state had, and in fact, the biggest issue for upstate NY was hunting rights".

"Brave doesn't spread hate. Courageous doesn't put money over lives", Gillibrand says. Courageous doesn't spread hate, cloud truth, build a wall.

"Brave doesn't pit people against one another".

Gillibrand also campaigned at an event hosted by Fems for Dems inside a Clawson furniture and women's clothing store, talking up policy priorities such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.

Gillibrand will launch her candidacy by hosting a rally and speech outside one of Donald Trump's hotels in New York City next Sunday.

A female Senate staffer for Gillibrand resigned in 2018 after she accused a male senior adviser of sexual harassment and felt the investigation was "poorly" handled.

She joins a huge field now being led in polls by Sens. Now she has reversed herself on all those issues, which aside from gun rights isn't a bad thing from a libertarian perspective-although it does raise questions about her campaign theme of "bravery", which she featured in her opening ad.
