Democrats: Senator Gillibrand announces application for US Presidency

  • The 53-year-old thus joins the democratic candidate field for the US election 2020. Previously, leftist Senator Elizabeth Warren, among other things, threw her hat in the ring.
  • On the democratic side is expected to be up to twelve candidates – from this circle must then be filtered out in a nationwide pre-election process, the candidate of the party and opponents of Donald Trump.
  • In polls are currently at the Democrats ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders front. Both have not yet announced their application.

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is Democrats' next candidate, who will face Donald Trump next year and become President of the United States. "I know that I have the compassion, the courage and the fearless determination to succeed." The 52-year-old announced on Tuesday in the television show of the prominent show master Stephen Colbert that she had founded an application committee. "It's an important first step." She wanted to run for office, "because as a young mother I want to fight just as hard for the children of others as for my own," she said in the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Gillibrand, who has two sons aged ten and fifteen, took over Hillary Clinton's New York Senate seat in 2009, which was then promoted to Secretary of State. In 2018 Gillibrand was re-elected. At that time, she promised in the election campaign, in the event of re-election to complete her six-year term.

The candidate field of the Democrats is growing

Who can beat Donald Trump? The US Democrats need to clarify that by the middle of next year at the latest. Now, two contenders from the back row have underlined their ambitions, including one of Obama's former ministers.

Gillibrand, a harsh critic of the incumbent president, plans to travel to Iowa this week, where the primary elections begin in 2020. It will compete against a presumably large field of Democratic candidates, from which then the party's candidate will have to be filtered out in a nationwide pre-election process. In the discussion are more than twelve candidates. In surveys are at the Democrats currently continue to be the former Vice President Joe Biden and 2016, just under Hillary Clinton inferior Senator Bernie Sanders front. Both have yet to announce a possible application.

As president, Gillibrand wants to act against "corruption and greed"

So far, Congressman Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), former Labor Minister Julian Castro, and Senator Elizabeth Warren have officially thrown their hats in the ring. Warren, like Gillibrand, first set up an application committee.

Gillibrand is considered a politician who is particularly committed to the rights of women. At the Colbert show, she said she wanted to be president of better health care for families, better public schools, and better access to education. In addition, she wants to take action against "corruption and greed".
