Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Announces 2020 Presidential Candidacy

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand attends SiriusXM's 'Leading Ladies with Kirsten Gillibrand, hosted by Perri Peltz' at the SiriusXM studios on October 23, 2014 in New York City.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is running for president. CNN reports that Gillibrand made the formal announcement on Sunday with a tweet, accompanied by a two-minute campaign video. The clip reveals that “bravery” will be a key aspect of Gillibrand’s messaging as she embarks on her quest for the Oval Office.

“Our anthem calls America the home of the brave, but we don’t realize that the lyrics first pose it as a question… It asks, ‘will brave win?’ Well, it hasn’t always and it isn’t right now,” she said on the clip.

The video then splices various news footage from the past couple of years, focusing on some memorable Trump administration controversies like the immigrant caravan, the border wall, and the Muslim ban.

“We need to remember what it feels like to be brave,” Gillibrand says, in her voiceover before reminding her viewers of important milestones that the United States achieved, such as the moon landing.
