Gillibrand Officially Launches 2020 Campaign

Kirsten Gillibrand released a video Sunday in which she officially joined the 2020 presidential race. The New York Senator had launched an exploratory committee back in January. She has several events lined up in the days ahead, culminating in a rally next Sunday outside Trump Tower in New York City.

Gillibrand has not yet gained much traction in the crowded Democratic field.  Polling thus far has seen her receive 1% or less support in the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
