'I haven't ruled it out' - Sen. Gillibrand says she may run for president again
In an exclusive interview with News 12, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) says she hasn't ruled out another run at the presidency.
In her first sit-down interview since the pandemic began, New York's junior senator took News 12 behind the curtain of her roller coaster White House run.
When asked if she could ever see herself running again, Gillibrand replied "Yes, I haven't ruled it out."
In 2009, Gillibrand replaced Hillary Clinton to become the youngest member of the U.S. Senate and soon became a political star in her own right.
She has made a name for herself by fighting for sexual assault survivors, battling against President Donald Trump, and ultimately joining the crowded race for the presidency last year.
Gillibrand shares personal moments from the campaign trail with News 12's Tara Rosenblum including thoughts about her son and the "real" reason she decided to drop out.
Gillibrand also opens up on her views of Joe Biden, the #MeToo movement, and the challenges of legislating amidst continued social unrest and social distancing.
The full interview airs on Power and Politics Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
