Kirsten Gillibrand drops out of Democratic presidential race

Kirsten Gillibrand drops out of Democratic presidential race”

Kirsten Gillibrand dropped out of the presidential race Wednesday after failing to make the third round of Democratic primary debates.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, exits the presidential race having never quite gotten her campaign into gear, with no signature moments to speak of and not even a fleeting moment of contention in the polls.

Gillibrand announced her withdrawal from the race after failing to meet the criteria to gain a spot in the September 12 debate for the Democratic candidates.

"I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country", Gillibrand told The Times, adding that a woman nominee "would be inspiring and exciting". To our supporters: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. "I believe I can best serve by helping to unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020".

While it is certainly reasonable to disagree with Trump's political agenda and fight for change, Gillibrand has notoriously used name calling when discussing the president, a method that delegitimizes her perspectives.

Standing among progressive moment originals Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, Gillibrand seemed more like a desperate hitchhiker than an authentic progressive. "It hovers close to his job approval rating, which has stayed in a tight range since being elected". Biden, for his part, punched back at Gillibrand, recalling a time she commended him for his advocacy for equality.

Gillibrand's campaign announced in a memo following her decision that she will relaunch her Off the Sidelines PAC to support women candidates.

On Politico , Patti Solis Doyle, a Democratic strategist who was involved in Hillary Clinton's presidential run, said, "Gillibrand was drowned out by the top tier, in the same way the rest of the candidates who are still in it and aren't in those top five are being drowned out".
