Gillibrand visits S.C. as possible 2020 candidate
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.
