Now, Gillibrand is in the unenviable position of making bigger headlines in defeat than she ever did during her campaign.
As she continued to struggle for traction, though, questions about why Gillibrand was still running intensified.
Gillibrand is the fourth presidential candidate to drop out of the race in recent days, following former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton.
"I really believe that President Trump's Achilles heel is a woman who speaks her mind".
But Jasewicz said the Democratic Party "needs" Gillibrand in the U.S. Senate to continue stressing party ideals.
"I know this isn't the result that we wanted. I believe I can best serve by helping to unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020".
Gillibrand topped an incumbent Republican in a conservative part of upstate NY to get to the U.S. House in 2007, and was appointed to the Senate two years later, filling the seat vacated by Hillary Clinton, who was tapped to be U.S. secretary of state.Читайте также: Apple initiates screen replacement program for aluminum Watch Series 2 and 3
"In hypothetical matchups between President Trump and the top five Democratic presidential candidates, one key number is 40", Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow said.
Gillibrand informed her more than 100 campaign staffers on Wednesday that she was ending her campaign, according to a campaign aide.
Another fundraiser suggested Gillibrand is showing little success in finding donations for her presidential aspirations because her supporters want to see her stay in the Senate. Gillibrand shot back with one of the most memorable lines of her campaign: "They're already there - do you not know?" The senator came into her Troy, New York, headquarters and - with her early state staff on the phone - delivered the news. Al Franken's resignation amid numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, and she has said for months that that alienated donors and some voters in his neighboring, make-or-break Iowa.
"There's nothing backhanded here".
"I like Joe Biden very much", he said.
Gillibrand's Senate colleague, Minority Leader Charles Schumer, also weighed in Thursday. She ran a good race. For many, Gillibrand is too similar to the last failed Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. She moved issues, particularly on women's rights, that she cares a lot about.
Gillibrand also used her run to highlight systemic racism and white privilege, speaking on the subject frequently on issues such as mass incarceration, urban gun violence and maternal mortality rates for black women. "So I don't think the race was for naught", said Schumer.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
