Gil­li­brand vis­its S.C. as pos­si­ble 2020 can­di­date

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WASHINGTON -

Sen. Kirsten Gil­li­brand, D-N.Y., im­mersed her­self in South Carolina over the week­end, us­ing her first trip to the state to in­tro­duce her­self as a pos­si­ble pres­i­den­tial can­di­date.

At a Satur­day lun­cheon in Columbia, Gil­li­brand gave her view­points on en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues, health care re­form and ed­u­ca­tion dis­par­i­ties. “I think Amer­ica’s up to the chal­lenge” of ad­dress­ing those is­sues, she said, “but we just need lead­er­ship.”

On Sun­day she vis­ited black churches in North Charleston.

Gil­li­brand has formed an ex­ploratory com­mit­tee but has yet to launch an of­fi­cial cam­paign.
