Gillibrand Pushes for Hillary in 2016

Is the Hillary drumbeat getting louder? In an interview with BuzzFeed on Wednesday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D–N.Y.) said that she will definitely be pushing Clinton, a role model of hers, to run for president in 2016. "I think she would be incredibly well poised to be our next Democratic president," she said of Clinton. "I think she's extremely well prepared. Her experience as secretary of state has not only elevated her stature and experience, but she has proven she's someone who can get things done, and I think she'll be an outstanding candidate." Despite being an advocate for Hillary 2016, Gillibrand won't give up her Senate seat to work on the campaign. "I think I can make a difference there," she said.
