Kirsten Gillibrand Officially Joins 2020 Presidential Race Via Twitter

"Brave doesn't pit people against each other", Gillibrand intoned. Subsequently, she positioned herself as an advocate of women's issues within her party and became a forceful proponent of the #MeToo movement, authoring a children's book past year titled Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote.

In a follow-up tweet, Gillibrand teased a campaign event next Sunday at Trump International in New York City.

She was re-elected to the Senate in 2018 and rose to national prominence as an outspoken critic of Trump, an advocate for women's issues, and a forceful proponent of the #MeToo movement - all of which will be central to her 2020 campaign.

"Brave doesn't spread hate".

On Friday, President Donald Trump announced he will be campaigning in Grand Rapids on March 28.

Gillibrand mentions her policy priorities, which are similar to those enumerated by other Democrats in the field - including health care for all and passing a "Green New Deal", the aspirational legislation to combat climate change introduced by her fellow New Yorker, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She will travel on Monday to campaign in MI, followed by stops in key early contest states of Iowa and Nevada.

Judge rules Qualcomm owes Apple nearly $1B rebate payment
The chipmaker has said it ended the rebates because Apple instigated antitrust investigations of Qualcomm and lied to regulators. Apple wasn't so lucky in Germany , where a Munich court blocked the sales of certain older iPhones that use chips from Intel .


Connie Britton has a long friendship with Gillibrand, going back to being her roommate while the two were Dartmouth undergrads.

"Americans are courageous every day".

The official launch of Gillibrand's campaign comes just days after Beto O'Rourke, the former congressman and failed Senate candidate from Texas, announced his presidential bid, attracting more attention, some complained, than any of the more experienced women pursuing the Democratic nomination.

Gillibrand defended her office's handling of the allegations, saying that her office looked into the accusations "immediately and did a professional and thorough investigation".

Prior to the video announcement, the NY senator had simply formed an exploratory committee. (By the way, on that moon-landing allusion, she probably owes Cory Booker for copyright infringement.) And as for getting money out of politics, it's ironic that Gillibrand herself doesn't seem to want to walk the walk, as the first item on her campaign page is an ad asking for donations.

Her past conservative record on immigration, guns, and gay marriage is also being scrutinized by the left and attacked by Republicans who seek to paint her as a flip flopper.
