Early Sunday morning, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand made it official with a tweet and video that she is joining the overcrowded throng of Democrats vying to run against President Donald Trump in 2020.
Here is her rollout.

In case you couldn’t tell, her campaign is going to be about her “bravery,” and the excitement is simply palpable.

Who is excited for Kirsten Gillibrand for President? Why? https://t.co/PvzNLsJ4sV

And a former state legislator from her home state of New York (yes, a Democrat) blasted her campaign rollout.
Brave? Gillibrand? The person who holds two different views on the same issue between an upstate Monday and downstate Thursday?
If ever there was an invertebrate politician, Gillibrand takes the prize.
At least she’s consistently inconsistent! https://t.co/3urnwWItuj

But she’s brave!
She calls herself brave.

The “brave” stuff is too cute by half. A marketing gimmick no one will remember https://t.co/HT0VEcVNLj

A recent poll in Iowa showed Gillibrand holding zero percent support in the all-important Hawkeye State.

And a Morning Consult poll released this past week showed Gillibrand holding one percent of Democratic support nationally.
