Gillibrand Dropped Out Of Presidential Race At Smart Time, Experts Say

Gillibrand Dropped Out Of Presidential Race At Smart Time, Experts Say

Gillibrand met with staff at her campaign headquarters in Troy, New York, on Wednesday afternoon to tell them her race was over.

Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio, who also failed to qualify for the September debate, is barely registering in the polls and hurting for cash. "And when there are 10 or more candidates who are going to be on the September and October debate stage, you really are at a disadvantage if you are not on that platform". She never surpassed two percent support in any major polls, and recent polling had her within margin of error of zero percent support. "I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country", she told the New York Times today.

Gillibrand rose to national prominence in 2009 following her appointment to the seat previously occupied by Hillary Clinton.

"It's important to know when it's not your time, and to know how you can best serve your community and your country", Gillibrand said in a video posted on Twitter.

A statement from her campaign read that "while this is not the result we wanted, Kirsten is proud of her aggressive, innovative and policy-driven campaign".

I applaud Gillibrand for admitting defeat when it was apparent, and for being one of the first doomed candidates to drop out of the race. Gillibrand finishes with just $800,000 left in her campaign bank account.

The 52-year-old Gillibrand joined the field of 2020 hopefuls seeking to take down President Donald Trump just a few months after she was elected to a new six-year term.

"He puts his name in bold on every building", Gillibrand said during the rally. "He is not. Our president is a coward".

But Jasewicz said the Democratic Party "needs" Gillibrand in the U.S. Senate to continue stressing party ideals.

Gillibrand's exit from the presidential race could benefit remaining Democratic candidates that are more focused on bridging the divide between the political left and right instead of perpetuating it.

Gillibrand also spent much of her campaign fighting back questions about her role in Minnesota Democrat Al Franken's decision to leave the Senate in 2017 after he was accused of inappropriately touching women. As of Wednesday morning, she was still calling on supporters via social media to help her cross the donor threshold. "I don't think he'll be able to be effective in demeaning or dismissing me".

"My friend ⁦‪@SenGillibrand⁩ is a fearless voice on some of the most critical issues facing our country today - from childcare to sexual assault".

The two-dozen-plus Democratic presidential field had already begun to winnow before Gillibrand's announcement.

"She is not going to rush into that", the aide added.
