Gil­li­brand gives sig­nals of 2020 pres­i­den­tial run

The Idaho Statesman - - News -

Sen. Kirsten Gil­li­brand of New York has hired two se­nior com­mu­ni­ca­tions aides for an ex­pected pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, a sign that she is all but cer­tain to join the race against Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

The hires are part of a flurry of ac­tiv­ity by Gil­li­brand re­cently as the 2020 cam­paign gets un­der­way. Politico re­ported that she is pre­par­ing a trip to Iowa this month and has been in touch with po­ten­tial cam­paign staff mem­bers there.

Gil­li­brand, 52, could be­come the sec­ond high­pro­file Demo­crat to join the race, af­ter Sen. El­iz­a­beth War­ren of Mas­sachusetts.
