NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand running for president in 2020

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has fought to preserve health benefits for 9/11 first responders and established herself as one of the most vocal critics of President Donald Trump, is the latest Democrat to enter the 2020 presidential race.

During an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Tuesday, Gillibrand announced that she is forming an exploratory committee — a necessary step before candidates formally launch presidential campaigns.

In a clip tweeted by “The Late Show,” the New Yorker explained to Colbert why she decided to seek the Democratic presidential nomination.

“I’m going to run for president of the United States because as a young mom, I’m going to fight for other people’s kids as hard as I would fight for my own,” she said.
